For some players, there’s no bigger disappointment than a highly anticipated game not living up to the hype. This goes double when they’re fans of the original game and expected the sequel to be just as good if not even better. And when it doesn’t live up to expectations, they wonder why. These are the thoughts that are troubling Destiny 2 players almost since the game launched. While there are many improvements to the RPG (such as the storyline) other things are weighing it down in the minds of many.
The biggest offense in the minds of Redditors are the lack of things to do once leveling is over. The end-game content is constantly being talked about by players, and then recently, a Community Manager from Bungie stated this:
“My challenge to every Guardian is to look to the human element in Destiny 2 to fuel your appetite for ultimate re-playability. The ultimate loot is the friendships that can grow out of a game like this. “
While that is a nice gesture, and true to an extent, Redditor OriginalTodd (nice name!) thinks that this is bull. Because as he notes, you can make all the friends you want in the game, but, if you have no content to play with them, why would you play Destiny 2 together when you can do something more fun?
In his eyes, and the eyes of many other Redditors, Bungie has revealed that they “don’t care about the hardcore player”, Destiny 2’s end-game content isn’t even comparable to the original Destiny, who even after years of launch had things to do in the game that were of value.
What makes this post so interesting is the response it has gotten. At the time of this posting, 5637 people upvoted this post. That shows that many have similar feelings about the game.
