Exploring the Last City

[url=http://i.imgur.com/MBD9ylr.jpg]Another Image[/url] Is anyone else hoping that we will someday be able to visit the Last City somehow? I had visions of walking through the city to find my favorite shady vendor, pushing my way past citizens in various states of existence, from poverty to wealth; experiencing the sense of desperation and hope displayed through the medium of architecture, the contrast of poorly constructed shacks surrounding the perimeter of the City with the skyscrapers of the densely populated center, of sound, hundreds of people talking, haggling, shouting, and other sounds which cities make, of citizens walking by, lounging around, talking with vendors, buying food, etc., of art, whether graffiti scrawled on the side of a shop, or statues and fountains adorning the governmental headquarters of the city. I had hopes of knowing that which I was protecting, of knowing those for whom I fought, of feeling that it was all for something and worth something. The tower really is an Ivory Tower, from which the city is seen only as an Idea. The Speaker tells of frightened children; who sees their fear? Who walks among them and smells the bitter tang of uncertainty and waiting, feels the snap of tension from the seething mass of humanity which depends solely upon you for their continued existence; and who extends their hand to quell their fear, to calm their hearts and show them that We are here, and We are fighting for them? I dearly wished to explore the city for that reason... After all, why did I become a Guardian?

  • I for one, would LOVE to be able to roam around the last city, being able to ride my sparrow through the streets, conversing with citizens and shady vendors for special gear. Maybe some public events made by the people for Glimmer prizes. After all, if we were all brought back to help save this city from the horrors within the darkness, but how can we do that with no emotional attachment to the City?

    I'm not sure we'd be welcome, after all we've been pelting their city with the bodies of Guardians flinging themselves off the tower for some time.

    • I think we will get to explore The Last City in the next game. I hate to say it but making the game available to the past-gen consoles probably limited what they could do in this game.

      • I wouldn't add anything more to your words because that is exactly how I feel about the Last City. Let us all make a petition for this please! I want to be able to even purchase a home in the city just to feel I have something to bring me back to it besides the Tower alone, which is very small in fact and there isn't a sense of home in it at all.

          I love the tower but being able to take that space cab that comes by every once in a while to parts of the city below would add tons of depth to the game and show us what we are protecting. Mass Effect's Citadel comes to mind, and the Purgatory nightclub of course.

          • Totally agree here. I [b]loved[/b] poking around the ruins of the old cities on Venus and Mars, or the infrastructure on the moon. Bungie did an awesome job of making those ruins seem almost relatable. And eerie. One of the things I loved most about mass effect two was roaming omega, illium, tuchanka, and the citadel wards. You got a sense of what the state of the universe was. Though I love the game as is, I'm hoping they decide to add the ability to explore at least part of the city at some point. It would make a vast difference.

          • I think bungie is at odds of making a shooter and not wanting to commit to this MMO thing. Being able to walk around villages where you don't shoot things is a waste of resources to bungie. That's because they only view this game as a shooter. But something like walking around the last city would GREATLY enhance the immersion of the world. Having a place people want to defend. Having a place people want to come back to.

          • I also wanted this. I expected to have a houses in the city. Hell even have a family to see. I'd go to them after a long day of fighting. Eat with them and tell them story's of my adventures. Aspire my kids to become guardians. I'd take them to bed and sleep.with my Exo lover. XD. Be able to walk out in the morning and get breakfast for them. Then off to the stars. Getting a cab to fly to the tower or fly my own car. Also have an animal buddy. Walking with me into the wild. There's a lot I wanted from destiny but its not there.

            • That's honestly the kind of depth I was EXPECTING destiny to have from the beginning. Sad it's not there and the "last city" is just a backdrop 2D image. :/

              • what i want is actually impossible i want a game where my character matters to the world and isnt tied down to the developers stories. i want to go out in space with my own beginning middle and end. but have other players interact with my story and so on. i want to be able to start a family and protect them. or go out and work for companies. or make my own company that makes guns etc i want to be able to do what i want. i want to drive space ships and cars, land in docking bays. i want to be able to drive hover cars around the cities, go into street races, or just go out and fight crime. i want so much, i want my character to sleep, eat and be able to do things more then just shoot people or be a bad ass assassin. i want to be able to have my story effect the world,i want to be able to take over planets, command armies of people both players and AI. to take over galaxies to create my own technology with in the world. to make my own robots etc. maybe I'm crazy and am the only one that wants this. but all i want is a game where i can do what i want and it matters. become who i want and just craft my own story not just through my actions but the players that come long with me. i want to have a beginning a middle and a end. i want the end to end bc i went down that path. ether i have become a war lord or an hungry business man. either i die at the end or keep going. or be a man out for revenge looking for the player that killed my family. wanting him to be my main enemy. maybe i'm crazy but this is what i want.

                • Apparently you became a guardian to deploy ghosts and shoot waves of aliens ad nauseam. I'm still having a good time with that, but I was really hoping for a more immersive experience. Unfortunately, I really don't see this game materializing into what many of us hoped it would be. I hope Bungie proves me wrong.

                • I just wonder if we were people or machines the people of the city once knew. Loved ones or ancestors from the past, both sad and frightening to behold walking around amongst the "normals" in the streets. Would we be welcomed or feared?

                      I'm guessing none of you paid attention to the last couple of lines at the end of the mission where the stranger said we will venture down their and the camera panned down to the city.

                      • i think this is an awesome idea, but we have to keep in mind that we are not (only) defending The City, we are Gaurdians of our Ghosts. and only our city by proxy.

                      • this is why , to explore and reclaim everything for the sake of our glorious skybox . look I understand and share most of your sentiment , I just don't see us combining every inch of it for a good while , and I think there may be some of the tower we haven't explored , saw a door by the speakers chambers that was blocked.

                          • The thought of exploring a city where the last of humanity cradles is very enticing. Hell I wouldn't mind if it was just a small crafted map so long as its lively and brimming with detail.
