Interesting. (Destiny)

Eh. I'd say the game is in an "okay" spot. Content updates continue to be pretty meager and certain game modes continue to be pretty much neglected. They just killed Gambit earlier this year.


I'd say the things they add are more significant than anything in the Halo days, and yet we never complained about any lack of content like you see online nowadays (for any game, not just Destiny).

The difference? Community content. Every day we had new custom games to play, new screenshots, new maps, machinima, puzzles, montages, and so on. Tools like Forge, Theater, and Customs allowed Bungie to outsource the work of bringing new content to the game, completely for free, to the players themselves. And we loved it.

TL;DR - Destiny needs Forge, Theater, and Customs.

Even today, everyone's hatred of 343 not withstanding, it's wild seeing what the community is doing with Forge in Halo Infinite.
