What's The Last Game That Had Destiny's Insane Hype?
I'm trying to think of the last game that generated this much hype.
I'm having difficulty coming up with one that captured so many hearts before the game ever hit store shelves. That open beta, which ended up giving 4.6 million people an early peek at the action, certainly helped.
It also helps that it's a multiplatform game; it's not an exclusive like The Last Of Us or Gears of War or something. Furthermore, because it blends so many of the biggest trends of today - shooter, open-world, multiplayer, etc. - it's difficult to find anyone who doesn't at least want to try it. Combine that with the ridiculous amount of marketing money Activision pumped into this project, and the hype level rockets into the ionosphere. What's the last game that achieved such heights on the hype scale?
Perhaps we have to go all the way back to the start of the previous generation. Maybe the first Assassin's Creed? Or if you go even further back, Halo on the original Xbox? I suppose any of the Grand Theft Autos would be high on the list, but still...Destiny might just take the cake.
