Video gamers, pretty much like sports fans, get very riled up when they are disappointed. And it’s easy to see why. If you pay good money for a game, especially when you’re promised quality, you expect that quality to be reflected in the finished product. But one video game managed to pretty much break all expectations regarding its players’ reactions. Worldwide fans will rejoice, as large expansion and sequel to arrive for Destiny.
According to Activision and Bungee, Destiny 2 is already set to come out in 2017. Not much more information was given about the subject, as the publishers and developers are trying to keep as much of it as they can a secret.
The more exciting news is the most recent, as a new, large-scale expansion is set to come out this spring. The companies promised more replayability, new challenges and gear, and basically whatever else you’d expect for a large scale expansion.
But fans are kind of skeptical, especially after several failed DLCs and events like Dark Below or House of Wolves, or even the most recent Valentine’s Day event, Crimson Days. If the expansion is more like the previously successful The Taken King expansion, however, fans will most likely be pleased.
Despite hugely conflicting opinions regarding the quality and customer treatment of Destiny and its players, most gamers agree with one of two opinions – either they love to hate it, or they hate to love it. And it’s very easy to see why.
It’s true, Destiny was very highly anticipated, and it kind of bombed at first. It is still unknown if the surprisingly poor voice acting from Peter Dinklage was because of his lack of experience with voice acting or because of Bungee’s recording studio, but it was definitely part of why gamers initially hated Destiny so much.
After he was replaced with Nolan North, huge problems still persisted, like huge amounts of glitches, DLCs which many considered to be a waste of money, as well as the constant subscription fees and nerfing of the weapons for which you spent so much time farming.
Despite all of these problems, most original players are still addicted to the game, although very grudgingly. This is because despite all of its problems, the game is still fun. And when something fun is combined with poor support and according to some with customer abuse, you get something that you either hate to love, or that you love to hate.
