There is little doubt that Destiny 2 was one of the most hyped and highly anticipated titles of 2017, and still is for PC players who will get to experience a Destiny game for the first time. Since its announcement, the game has come under criticism regarding its direction. Granted, a lot of this came prior to launch, purely based on skepticism for the most part as to what to expect.
One of the game’s main points of criticism is the lack of end-game content and grind that featured heavily in the first Destiny game. Of course, this current outing has only just launched, yet even the base game seems to be without that key feature that keeps players playing for so long, with many struggling to find things to do after completing it. Despite the main intentions of this being a shooter franchise, there is an MMORPG feel about Destiny 1, mixed in with futuristic shooter mechanics for good measure, whereas Destiny 2 seems much more like an intended shooter.
Whether or not you see this is as a criticism, it is something that is different from the last game. There is the argument for the case against, with there being an apparent drop in the player base since launch, but surely that is something that is common practice in many video games, and it is bound to pick up massively when it releases on PC. There is a point to made however, which is highlighted on Reddit, in that if you feel that it has strayed far away from the elements that made the original game so popular, then Bungie should be given the feedback based on this, regardless of how negative it might be.
