From the makers of Halo, Destiny was a highly anticipated release. The game centers around "Guardians" in a mythical science-fiction first-person shooter MMO. Destiny scrapped a traditional “campaign” mode and replaced it with an online-only story that could
be played with friends at a moments notice. This was an exciting prospect, because slaughtering A.I. is always more fun with a buddy.
And then the bad reviews started pouring in. Some critics called it a shooter for Farmville fans — and that wasn't far off-base. Players were constantly grinding for loot and XP. It was hyped for a long time before its release. Destiny is a great example of an overrated game that tried to combine too many genres.
