I think you're not accounting for the psychological effect the game creates. It has a literal reward system of tangible (in the digital realm) items. As soon as that happens, the players focus is immediately changed. How many people have played the same raid dozens of times just to play it.


That's a bad example, because I have. I've played raids, crucible, and trials with no expectation or desire for rewards many times.

C'mon Cody, you of all people should recognize the spirit of my point instead of focusing on the outliers. :P

I'm not speaking in absolutes here. I was in a Raid party with someone who had done the raid a bunch, and still not gotten their weapon and hearing the frustration in their voice. From podcasts, I've heard multiple stories similar to that experience. From what it seems to me, Destiny is being catered to the type of player that matches my example.
