It's getting better all the time... (Destiny)

For the record, I don't think Destiny is that genre bending. I think it's more parts sci-fi than fantasy, and Bungie is upfront about that - it has fantasy were it counts: There are adventurers crawling dungeons together for old relics whilst in fancy armour, literally blasting the souls out of opposing forces with magic bestowed onto them by a sphere.

Mass Effect is a good example of this blending, and yeah it's more "fantasy informed" sci-fi. Element zero is the magical force that lets the crazy things happen, but the writing team bases it in our understanding of space time and dark matter.

Sounds like Destiny will be doing a similar kind of thing with the Traveler and whatever the heck it has going on. After all, advanced enough technology is basically magic.
