With the recent release of Warmind, I’m pretty happy with the place Destiny 2 is in right now. While the expansion might have felt a little flat at face value, the promise going forward is huge and despite the feeling that Bungie can’t seem to do anything right at times, I’m happy to be playing the game again.
The community surrounding the game though, it feels like this insatiable, impossible to please criticism machine. Every shred of news that pops online is followed by serial comments tearing the game down, or expressing delight that they stopped played they game when they did. Personally, I think many are forgetting that the original Destiny had always been on fire to some degree, especially in its first year.

Bungie and Destiny haven’t been in the best place these past few months. As much damage control as it seems the developers have been running, they can’t really seem to catch a break. After the release of Destiny 2’s first expansion; The Curse of Osiris, many were questioning how game could continue when it seemed to be losing players at a rapid pace.

This time last year I was talking about Nintendo and how I felt bad that they didn’t have that many good games for me to talk about. It wasn’t really a good time for them though to be fair. The Wii U was basically flopped into oblivion, and the 3DS is on its way out. It’s funny looking back, because, not to spoil anything about how this list is going to go, but Nintendo have bounced back in a big way.
I did get a Switch though. I held off for a while, after being burned by the Wii U. But I eventually crumbled and picked one up when there were a good handful of games out for it I felt I could sink my teeth into. And do you know what unexpected positive came from the Switch, it’s a hell of an indie game machine. I’ve found myself getting buried into Battle Chef Brigade and Steam World Dig 2 in a way I probably wouldn’t have ever done with them on console.
Anyway, time to crack my knuckles. I feel like this might be a long one.
