Staring crazy tiger mental moon man. When you have a character creation section, why not look like you're a blind satanic albino?
Destiny is a console FPS (fake person simulator) that takes place in the REAL future of REAL mankind. So people get into space, get chased to near extinction by The Moon Covenant, then something, something... space stuff. You enter this barren future of homeless moon monsters that like to eat bullets and can't get enough of you punching them thousands of times. In order to fend off the Martian hoards proper without accidentally chaining yourself to a moon zeppelin and protesting your prime directive, you're given a floating robot guide to state the obvious for you. Its name is Ghost, because it's terrifying how badly written this character is with a 500 million non-space dollar budget. Spooky. But luckily, Bungie bashed their collective heads together at the same time, causing a rift in the space-time continuum. Out of this hole of horror, the midget that plays Tyrion Lannister in that medieval sex show emerged on a flaming stool and offered to play Ghost's voice. Not having any voice acting experience, he was an obvious choice. Who needs good writing or proper voice acting when you have a little angry man getting auto-tuned like a winner?
In the game, you join forces with other people who don't actually care about the story and just want to get cool guns and armor so they can beat you to death in the player Vs. player mode while insinuating risque things about your mother. So more accurately, the story of Destiny is that everyone is a greedy prick and have no real interest in cleansing the Galaxy of the xeno scourge that threatens their very existence. Not without being paid in guns, obviously. The real enemy in Destiny is getting lots of loot in as little time as possible. With the Rules of Acquisition at hand, you and your space cadets follow poorly written voice acting events to find the source of the menacing Moon Wizards. No... I didn't just use the word "moon" as a space joke this time... there are actually things called Moon Wizards. If I accidentally made you think this game is silly and stupid, no worries. It'll do that to itself without my help.
I also wasn't joking about these space plebs eating bullets either. Every enemy of worth in this game (50% of the scumbags) take so many bullets, it would be easier to send the freaks back to the Roman era just to get them crucified in order to get your loot in a timely manner. But it's totally worth it. You need to kill scumbag enemies so you can get sweet loot, so you can kill even scumbagy'er enemies and get even sweeter loot. When everything and everyone is dead and in a continent sized landfill dedicated to your discarded uncommon items, you have won the game and may continue dwelling in your stepmother's basement. But if she hears Ghost's voice and thinks you're watching that naughty Game of Thrones nonsense, she may seal your chamber door with cement and consecrate the electric bills to oblivion so that you can sit in a dark hole until Jesus forgives you. Don't take any risks, people.
So to conclude this magical moon journey across 4 whole paragraphs, Destiny is dumb. They spent 500 million dollars and about 10 years making a game with a story line worse than the dubbed German version of Battleship, and gameplay so repetitive, watching Space Jam 5 times a day for the next 7 years doesn't sound so bad after all. And yet, they spend all this time and money, and people still found easy ways to exploit the game so they don't have to do any work at all. Wondrous. And people wonder why the game's scores are lower than the average IQ of a fetus. Mystery solved, you moon losers.
