Heya Hazzard, I hope you take this strip in good fun. It's not that Destiny is actively horrendous; it's the fact that, for such a massively funded and ballyhooed product, Destiny is so mediocre.
The core shooter mechanics are actually quite good. You'd expect that from a storied FPS studio like Bungie, funded by Activision's treasure hoard. Unfortunately, taken as a whole, the game is barren and devoid of substance. It's telling that even Bungie's community manager (responding to rumored feature updates) uttered the phrase, "We all want Destiny to be better." Yes, that line is plucked out of context, but it is a tacit admission that the game is not (yet?) where we hoped it would be.
