Destiny 2 is the most fun I’ve had in am MMORPG since EverQuest back in the day.
Yes. I consider it an MMORPG. I actually think it’s better since it’s an FPS type game and it isn’t so heavily designed around either solo or group play. It seems to strike a much better balance between the two than any MMO that I’ve played (they tend to be polarizing in how far the pendulum can be shifted by conventional MMORPG developers).
The nature of of the game also means is completely playable on consoles and you can master the controls in an hour or so - not really the case for something like FFXIV.
Im totally sold on it.
PC MMOs are going to start bleeding customers to console MMOs like this. The consoles are cheap and remove system requirements as a barrier, and these games have better gameplay along with all the communication tools being built directly into the platform.
I doubt I will go back to PC MMOs again. I don’t see a point in them, anymore. The nostalgia is good, but I can’t be bothered sitting at a desk and being so monetarily limited when I can lie in bed comfortably while playing a game like this on a cheap console and controller with good graphics and consistent, reliable performance. And don’t have to worry about upgrading until the next console generation...
