That’s exactly the problem. There’s lots of plot in Destiny, but there is no story. Lightfall has me more convinced than ever there has never been and will never be an actual plan. We were told explicitly that their story was so grand they had to add an extra expansion here to tell it correctly. As far as I can tell you can watch the first cutscene and the last cutscene and lose basically nothing in terms of any actual plot or story development.

I get that making games is hard, but I seriously hope at least someone at Bungie has enough self-awareness to feel embarrassed by putting this out and expecting people to think it’s great.

The way this season has arrived it makes me wonder....what was the point/plot of the last 8 years? Lots of stuff has happened, but none of it seems significant. Has anything that has happened not played out yet?

For example:
The stranger.
That black heart in the garden.
Siva and Iron Lords.
I still want to know how the Vex fit into things.
How do the Taken fit into things.
That cranky old guy who was the planet vender that is turning into a Vex.
That Exodus AI that's going crazy.
Osiris and his infinite universes and the Vex seeing the past and future and our sun being dead.

EDIT:

Ol' whats-her-face vanguard with the 3 eyes on the moon and all of her ghost projections and finding that statue in the pyramid in the moon and it made her green orb glow.
