Would Micro-transactions ruin Destiny? In my own opinion, absolutely!! Unless they do it right.
Destiny needs to fix the following before they even dare add micro-transactions and join the Free 2 Play Market:
- -It's not open-world (static, linear levels)
-It's not "massive" (max 6vs6 lol)
-No story whatsoever
-No real campaign
-Always online (What's the point?)
-Lacking social features (lack of chat, trading etc.)
-Bulletsponge AI and Bosses (which is rare coming from Bungie)
-PvP unbalanced (shotgun, melee, different levels)
-No variety to Weapons/equipment (most unlocked gun models look the same)
-Joke loot system
-Mission structure: Go to X, deploy ghost, shoot spawning mobs of dumb enemies, repeat, repeat, repeat
And this game cost how much to create? $500 million dollars!!As Gamers we have to start standing up to things like this before it becomes a growing trend. Things like:
- 1.) Being pressured into buying full games up front years or months in advance with season passes without any sort of guarantee the content; game companies say will be in the game, are actually in the game. This is why playing a demo or trial version of the game prior to release is necessary. I understand demos don't really sell games, but they can be used to promote games and to give players a taste of what is to come.
2.) Being initially sold the game without its entirety piece by piece. Provide players the full game, then later add expansions.
