Pick Your Horse: Destiny, Call Of Duty, Or Neither
There will be two very big first-person shooters hitting the market during the last four months of 2014.
So, here's the big question: Will you purchase Destiny or Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? Both? Neither? Chances are, not everyone will have the requisite time to dive into both and earn significant rewards online.
I'm going with neither just because I'm a little tired of shooters right now. But if I had to pick, I think I'd go with Destiny, just because it's closer to a role-playing-type atmosphere. It also reminds me of Borderlands, which was great fun. I have great respect for what Sledgehammer Games is trying to do with Advanced Warfare - that exosuit looks awesome! - but in the end, I think it'll just be another shooter that thrives on the same ol' multiplayer.
Still, if the campaign of Advanced Warfare is great, I might have to play it. Destiny seems too massive for me to play, anyway; I won't have anywhere near enough time this fall. So, how's about you?
