I miss the old Vidocs (Destiny)

I just don't feel any connection with anyone there like I felt with the Bungie of the old days. It's nothing against the people in the vidoc, it's just that all I hear is marketing pitches from them. I guess it's because they've long outgrown the lil' ol' Bungie small studio feel.

It's like, I used to hang out at a hole in the wall hot chicken joint here in Nashville. Then suddenly it got popular amd you started seeing these abominations of imitation hot chicken everywhere (looking at you, KFC). Then my lil' ol' chicken joint closed down and moved to a nicer part of town and built something that is like all the big restaurant chains. The chicken is still good, but it just doesn't feel the same. There's no soul. No connection with the new staff and cooks. It's commercial and not small shared experience for us locals and people in the know.
That's what these vidocs remind me of.
