Someone already 3 manned Destiny's new raid and I heard the story was really short. I don't get people that still put money into this game.

I think its been a year since I last played Destiny and even though I told myself I'd watch the raids on youtube because I know I'd never play them, but I never did. And I have no interest in watching them even now. I highly doubt I'll ever buy a Destiny 2. The newest raid with the bulldozer thing does look pretty cool, but only cool enough to watch a couple clips of it and move on to the next thing. I don't mind grinding in a game to an extent as long as I'm not bored. If I'm grinding a MMO like guild wars 2, I have the game muted and I'm watching TV while gathering items for gold. But grinding in a FPS game like Destiny is never going to happen for me again. It takes up all my attention because of the nature of the encounters and gameplay. I did it initially because I thought it was a one time grind, get my gear maxed out and I'd be set to enjoy the game with new content releases. Nope. Every dlc/expansion meant all my grinding was pointless. I'm never doing that again. Thats way too much of a time sink for me.
The RNG and raid exclusive weapons were also the worst I've ever seen in any game. I don't mind seeing exclusive looking weapon skins from doing raid content but when people get rewarded with exclusive weapons with noticeable advantages it leaves me feeling salty. I still remember getting torn up by a vex mythoclast in those early year 1 iron banners, same with the original gally. Aside from that first week gally was in the xur shop, we never saw it again for a year. Only the early access people got enough coin saved up fast enough to buy it that week. In hindsight I think it might have been done completely intentionally so all their early alpha testers and youtubers that were promoting the game would get it guaranteed because they knew the value of it and had enough time to get the coins needed.
The plan, from what I’ve heard, is for Destiny 2's planet areas to feel more populated with towns, outposts, and quests that are more interesting than the patrol missions you can get in Destiny.
Honestly, this is what I expected from the first game. And to succeed on PC, their going to have to make a completely different game. It damn well better be a Diablo 2 style improvement over Diablo. If the Anet talent picked up early last year still has his creative pull, maybe it will be a better solo experience. Renown Hearts coming to Destiny!
lmao. Their own version of Renown Hearts might actually happen.
Towns, outposts, quests, (ambient life), NPC quests.. all that should have been in Destiny 1. If Destiny 2 is really going to be a 'totally different game' then I'll definitely wait on playing it (if I do at all), until the first 2 or 3 expansions come out a year after the game is released and is no longer in beta quality. Even then there will be other games in my backlog at that point like Fallout 4 or some other RPG FPS games.
