Forget Destiny Next Week, I'm Playing...
Complete the sentence!
Whenever a game has completely captured the attention of the entire industry, I like to go the other way. I like to find those who have zero interest in the game of the moment and find out what they'll be playing instead.
Unless you've been living under a rock on Mars, you know Destiny launches next week. Not only are there countless headlines involving that game right now, but it has been the most talked-about game of 2014, hands-down (with the possible exception of The Last Of Us: Remastered about a month before its release). However, while analysts think Destiny could sell 15 million copies alone, not everyone on earth is interested.
If you count yourself in the latter group, I want to hear from you: What will you be playing next week while millions are getting obsessed with Destiny? Are you still going through Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster? Heck, that's probably what I'd be doing now if I wasn't caught up in Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition. Maybe you're still playing Watch Dogs; tryin' to get 100 percent complete and all that. Let us know!
P.S. Advent Child, thanks for the gift but I'm obviously too stupid to accept it. How the hell do I open it? Do I need a Battle.net account?
