Will Destiny be better then Halo?

So, as you all know, Bungie recently released some concept art from there new game. And thanks to this [url=http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/11/28/destiny-story-details-concept-art-leaked]video by IGN[/url], we now have a deeper glimps into the universe of Destiny. I for one am moar exited then I think I've been in a very long time. But, I thought of a scary, but tatelizing possiblility. What if Destiny is far better then Halo? I mean, sure, the gameplay will most likely blow Halo out of the water. But what about the story? I fell in love with Halo ever since I first picked up that classic controller to play some Halo 2. I have beaten all of the Campaigns (Including Halo Wars) and have read almost every novel. I've come to think of Halo's story as one of the greateset storys ever told. Certainly the best one told in recent years. But, I never thought something could top Halo. I mean, it's Bungie, they made Halo, so they'll deffenatly make something truly amazing. What I got from the IGN vid told me that Destiny has a very good chance to beat Halo. Now, I never thought anything could though. So I'm a lttle scared, and happy, that this is possible. Though I always knew Bungie could do it. What do you guys think?

It has been in development since 2007 - I have been told (feel free to correct me) - so that suggests it has been in development for 5 long years. That's 2 more years than Halo 3's development which was the most successful Halo game in my opinion.

    • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] da bomb drop Judging from the concept art, its still going to futuristic military based. I am hoping bungie will keep away from this sort of thing and surprise us. [/quote] Marathon, Halo, and Oni would like to have a word with you.

    • Better than Halo 4 that is for sure. It all just depends. We need to know what type of game it is, first.

    • I'm thinking it will be better than any Halo game after Halo 3. I doubt it will be better than the first 3 games for me.

    • Better than Reach? Absolutely. Reach's campaign dropped the ball, but I'm under the assumption that the only reason this is so is because Bungie was more so experimenting with new ideas for their next project after Halo 3 rather than concentrating on staying true to Halo's lore. The exciting part is that Bungie is finally back in their zone of creating games they genuinely want to, not games they are forced into. We have all seen the power of Bungie to make games they truly want to make (original trilogy).

    • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Make117 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] spartain ken 15 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 Since it is clear that Bungie was yearning to do something "other than Halo", I think that the question is better phrased as "Will Destiny even be anything like Halo?" Because if it is, then why was Bungie so eager to go off and do more of the same when they could have easily stayed where they were if making "Halo but better" was their goal. It took conscious effort on my part not to initially view Halo through Marathon-fan glasses. It's going to be easier (this time around) for me to not look at Destiny through Halo-fan glasses and explore Destiny for what it is (whatever that may be).[/quote] Halo has tons of Marathon references, some more subtle than others. I am sure there will be tons of Halo stuff in Destiny also. Even though halo and Marathon have their similarities, there is still significant differences in their gameplay that make them each very unique. [/quote]Halo and Marathon have differences in their gameplay? :o[/quote] I would say so, many significant differences, thank god. For starters, there is a lot less screaming in Halo. You can't duel wield shot-guns in Halo. :'( You can't hold 6 weapons and rockets in Halo. :'( Marathon is really fast paced and does not look like a modern FPS. No invincibility in Halo MM :) [Edited on 12.01.2012 12:35 PM PST]

    • We can't know until the game comes out, but I honestly hope it develops like Halo did, what with the novels, lasting a decade, etc.

    • I dont know, I mean Halo has over 10 years of great fiction backing it up. I guess we will find out soon.

    • like everyone else is saying its way to early to tell. I think the story of Halo is amazing and Bungie helped build it.. so it will always be up there on my list. So that being said and because Bungie is building this story I think it could be the best story ever to me... but we'll have to wait and see.

    • Far too early to tell. However, from the limited knowledge I do have of the game it does sound very promising. :-)

    • I don't know if I'm going to prefere its [i]identity[/i] more; Spartans vs [Destiny equivalent], for instance, but I might like its coherence--if there is any--and overall accomplishments more. If it's anything like the leaked information pointed towards, it's got a really good shot at becoming just as good, or better than Halo.
