That sort of proves his point a bit.

No one runs Menagerie anymore because it’s not relevant anymore for the investment side of the game. No matter how fun an activity is, most people won’t play it if it’s not giving out current gear. If the investment side of the game wasn’t there (or even if it was more forgiving and old activities didn’t cap out and always gave current or Powerful gear), that wouldn’t be the case. Bungie uses the investment system to drive players to new activities,

I agree with this.

instead of focusing on just making fun activities or letting players just play the things they enjoy.

I hate when people say this. Mostly because when I play the game this is blatantly false. Do I go after gear? Yeah, of course I do, but if the content isn't fun to play then I just don't do it. To say that Bungie isn't focused on fun activities is just not true in my opinion.

As for "letting players just play the things they enjoy" I have always thougt of this as silly statement. I feel like every player enjoys some content of Destiny. And if that statement is true, then the above statement is true. If you are so disappointed by the gear you get from something that you can't enjoy the actual game play... I honestly feel sorry for you. I've always enjoyed playing Destiny first, loot second. I'm also very much a social gamer though, so I can imagine how that might change while playing solo. But I also play Destiny when new content comes out and then I finish it and I'm done.
