The thing that intrigues me about Destiny is the mystery, and the world building. Bungie is good at that. They did a brilliant job of it with Halo and it’s no coincidence that the world grew less interesting the more we learned about it.

It bears all the hallmarks of great world building: detail, scale, weirdness. I feel like I already know how Destiny will feel to play with a controller in my hand, but I have no idea what I will see or learn while playing. I think that’s the allure of a game like this.
