Interesting. (Destiny)

What's interesting is that just a couple of days ago I was having a conversation with someone about a baffling take I'd seen. Someone ran content dry in a game with just 5-10 minutes of optional low effort daily investment in-between frequent content drops and quit out of boredom; however, despite there now being years of new content, they still feel like other games are more deserving of their time. Essentially, the mentality being that a game without constant "meaningful" progression available at all times is not a good enough value of time invested, even if the vast majority of your time spent in the game is novel content, not even repetitive content like Halo MP or Destiny's playlists.

Let's talk about that word:


Let's just say social media is to blame. Progression used to mean working toward something in your own head - enjoyment, the building of skills, or the having of unique experiences. But you can't always share or show off what's in your head. So now, Progression is linked to Trophies, checklists, counters, and STUFF. Things you can easily point to.

Pics or it didn't happen.
