PSXE Poll Update: Destiny Popularity Is Almost Split

Maybe it's a love/hate sort of thing.

Our recent poll asked if you'd be getting Destiny, arguably the most anticipated title of the new generation.

And while the majority of participants said they'd be getting it on launch day, nearly as many said they weren't interested in the slightest. That's intriguing because the gaming community does appear to be split on the issue; for instance, while some critics praise the game to high heaven, others are quite unimpressed. On the plus side, given the alpha and beta tests that got a ton of attention, most gamers knew what the game was all about when they made the decision to buy (or not to buy).

This week, if you're one of the many Destiny players out there, would you say it lived up to the hype? Is it everything you wanted and then some? Or is it just a flat-out disappointment? Let us know.

67% loved it now!

Great to see I'm not the only one who doesn't care at all about all the negativity.

Destiny is awesome and I have loved every minute!

Last I checked it was only 27% of people were not interested in the game at all.

Did that option grow another 23% in the last day or two?

Bungie said Destiny is "the best game we've ever made." If that's the truth, they ain't ever made a good game.

Destiny is leaps and bounds above the Halo games.

Before you disagree with me, consider what Destiny actually is, the mechanics behind it all, the world itself, the size of the world, the forward thinking approach they have taken with designing the world etc

Then yeah, much better than any of the singular Halo games.

Bungie have made good games. Although i am not a FPS fan, Halo & Halo 2 were amazing for their time & did great things for their respected genre. So stop being a gimp.

Destiny has been awesome, so far! I think it really shines when played with friends on co-op. I find the single player experience to be pretty average. That's why I loved Borderlands so much.

I also love the shooting/control mechanics. It's *very* Halo-like, which is definitely not a bad thing. If I had one gripe, it would be my character turns a bit too slow. I don't remember seeing a sensitivity setting anywhere...

It's awesome but you should still have realistic expectations.

Because I don't have the MMO-style background as some of them PC/Console hybrid guys out there have I just don't feel disappointed much at all so far. My brain tells me perhaps I'm supposed to be seeing that it's scoring lower than expected, but because I've had 5 nights of great enjoyment in a row I can't deny myself of saying I'm quite pleased.
I suppose I don't belong with the upper echelon of the gaming hardcores these days.

While I would agree that it isn't 'exactly' what the gaming community (the developers - Bungie - included) might have led me to believe... I have to say, it is everything I expected it to be. Liking the grindfest in outer planets to the tune of Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack xD
