I had some time to reflect on the shitter, and I think I have just realized why this is annoying me so much.
Everyone knows Destiny is starved for content. The entire loop of the game is to play the same content over and over again at higher difficulty levels to get better loot. If that is the case, why the hell release a “sequel” that immediately makes all previous content obsolete, while not adding a single thing to the game to justify it?
Bimble reminded me earlier that the original was reported to be a development/maintenance nightmare, and they had to clean the slate with the sequel to build a better foundation, which if that is the case, I can understand, it just hope it’s true and they either continue to expand on the same game similar to an MMO, or that the next numbered sequel will actually add some dynamics to the gameplay that make it feel fresh, where the old content wouldn’t even be relevant. I just don’t know how they will do the former without a subscription model. I guess from dopes buying emotes?
