Trolling account activated, lol --- Excuse me, judge. I'm wouldn't be delinquint in my payments if they'd just raise my debt limit.
Arguably, "Destiny" is basically the same thing, but better.
Not at all arguable. A open world RPG vs. a campaign-heavy/arena shooter
It is certainly arguable, on the principals of viewpoint and personal perception if nothing else.
To me, Destiny has been presented more like a Halo-style FPS with light RPG elements than an RPG. The way I experience a video game, most of the "signature experience" of a shooter is in the "feel" of the combat, and the atmosphere/art style that it happens in, and other aspects are somewhat peripheral to the core "feel". From what I've seen, the actual action in Destiny seems like the shooting, vehicles and environments are heavily entrenched in the style of a Halo game. By my perception, even hand-abilities appear to fire in the style of re-skinned Halo-esque gunfire. Being a Bungie game in a very similar setting and art style, I'd be surprised if the campaign story weren't of similar quality, as well.
I believe that Destiny will offer the signature visual style and combat feel of Halo and MUCH more, across multiple platforms. I believe it is fair to say open worlds and character development are vast improvements, and I don't believe they'll subtract any of the signature "Halo" gameplay feel. To me, that's basically the same thing, with improvements. You may not agree, but it is certainly arguable.
I'm gonna chalk Halo 4 up to 343 not being ready to make a halo game they did acknowledge that the game wasn't as good as they hoped if I recall so Halo 5 i'll stay optimistic but probably won't buy at launch. --- "There's always a man, a lighthouse, a city."
