I can't stand Forbes' article on Destiny, and more specifically the writer of this article (Paul Tassi). This is some of the worst journalism I've seen outside of fox news in a long time. To start with, he is lacking in knowledge on the entire game. Bungie has stated you'll be able to carry your characters throughout the entire decade long experience, something he is completely unaware of (even though this information is readily available on a number of forums along with legitimate sources). Next he claims Destiny is an MMO. Regardless of whether you think it is or it isn't, that is an opinion and a point of contention (despite the fact that Bungie has claimed it isn't an MMO). He passes this off as a fact that isn't even remotely debated. The rest of the article is purely his opinion, which is something absolutely any single one of us can give. They're guys on forums more knowledgeable, well spoken, and who are capable of setting their biases aside, than this dipshit. Sorry, I just had to rant. EDIT: he specifically calls Destiny an MMO in his video. At roughly 25-35 seconds in

Their website is a model of futility as well. It's more a political echo chamber than anything. Too bad, old Forbes was great... And Forbes the younger does know what he's talking about.
