Destiny: The Taken King has been out for about a week now and the reaction seems universally positive. How are you finding it so far?
Me? I haven’t had the chance to play it. I’ve been too busy playing all of the other massive, time-sink video games like Metal Gear Solid V and Mario Maker.
I need more time. Or the ability to make Shadow Clones like Naruto.
But from listening to my friends who play Destiny and nothing but Destiny: the levelling is fixed. The game is better. Everything is better. They are no longer playing Destiny because they hate themselves. Destiny is now a version of Groundhog Day that is actually super rewarding and good and brilliant.
Well, that’s nice.
But still, my problem, and I suspect Bungie’s problem in general, will be convincing lapsed players like me – people who gave up around level 17 or so – to hop onboard and play this game in a big way. At this stage, with so many other great games being released, Destiny is just so far down my list it’s unbelievable. Pro Evolution Soccer is probably above Destiny on my list at this point. I doubt I’ll ever get back to it.
Am I crazy? Should I play again?
