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

    Agreed with all said. However, nobody else found it interesting that FORBES is writing an article on a video game? Good/Bad/or just plain nonsensical writing... A shit-ton of wealthy, wanna-be wealthy, Dr. Office waiting rooms, legal briefing rooms, non-gamers! Etc, now have an article about DESTINY in FORBES to read. Way to go BUNGIE!!! Break The Walls Down Baby! And to the rest of my fellow Guardians, do not allow yourself to feel very upset over the garble that comprises the article. Know that the majority of current Forbes readers are not gamers. What the article might do is prompt the non-gamer who reads Forbes, to maybe ask around about DESTINY at a local retailer....(or a question from a wealthy brother-in-law which will certainly be the case for me "Dude, what's this DESTINY I've been hearing about?"). At that point the knowledgable person can tell the Forbes person how much fun the actual game is. Long/Short,. It builds a larger customer base and spreads more awareness to the masses that may not of picked up on DESTINY through other forms of informational media. Seriously,. When was the last time you bought or didn't buy something based on a Forbes article?..... Meh... Except that time I passed on the G5 acquisition due to Forbes reporting in an earlier issue that the Italian leather used to wrap the conference table chairs... Was in fact leather procured in Canada. No self respecting G5 owner would allow non-Italian leather to touch their ten thousand dollar suit. Even at 30,000 ft. Destiny is not a game purchased or played by separation of economic class.... Who cares what Forbes says,... What matters is they are saying it. It's good for business. O.o,y,,
