Destiny: Gaming’s biggest franchise ever?

Posted on January 13, 2015 at 6:21 pm

One of the biggest gaming releases of the past decade has been Destiny. From the developers behind the Halo franchise, and the publishers behind Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, Destiny was slated to be the biggest franchise the gaming world has ever seen.

Promises of incredible gunplay, huge sprawling worlds, and the social interactions of the biggest MMOs meant that players were getting massively hyped before the game release. The launch went smoothly; players flocked to the game on Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Playstation 3 before discovering that the game wasn’t quite what they were expecting.

Content seemed to be missing, the voice work and writing was poor, and Bungie had added “grinding” (performing the same actions over and over to slowly get towards arbitrary goals) instead of adding unique and difficult challenges.

Bungie has slowly begun to add content and change various things through updates, so maybe the game that players were promised is slowly coming.
