Destiny’s story is finally worth playing for. *Spoilers* (Destiny)

I've been checked out of Destiny's story for so long, I haven't heard a single snippet from the (long, and not skippable) dialog this season.

I wish the people writing the lore wrote the dialog, because there's cool stuff there. Maybe there's a good story story in the dialog, but every time I turn it on, I'm like "Saturday morning cartoons," glucose, G-rated, safe, wholesome, totally approved, and boring.

I honestly haven't been engaged in Bungie story-telling since Halo 2. I should really give it another shot?

The writing absolutely has jumped a level in quality, characters have a lot more personality, theres a lot more themes beyond "kill the bad the thing". There's still some cornball stuff, and some of the mission dialog gets a bit awkward... but the core dialog is well written and acted, and punctuated by smart cutscenes.
