Destiny is right around the corner, and if there is one thing it appears to have done particularly well, is that it seamlessly combines features from other game genres and mixes them beautifully into one. Now obviously, we're all here because we enjoy gaming. And Destiny has drawn a lot of attention from its ability to highlight some of the greatest features from other genres, and from games that we all used to love to play. So, in short... What games led you to this point in your own personal gaming timeline? What have you played since your earliest recollection of gaming, that kept you going as a gamer? What features do you prefer that from specific genres that you somewhat see mirrors in Destiny, that make Bungie's next title seem all the more appealing? Name as many titles as you wish! Personally, I've always been a huge fan of character customization. KOTOR was, and still is one of my favorite titles of all time. It blended action and RPG elements perfectly, not to mention the incredible story. So when Bungie introduced armor customization in Halo 3, I was very pleased. Nothing like making your own unique Spartan to enter into the online battlefield. Having a sense of "identity", something that separated your character from the crowd, is just something I really appreciate having in a game. Halo: CE had a fantastic and extremely fluid combat system that evolved for the better over each iteration of the franchise. Simplistic controls and exciting gunplay that never seemed to get boring. Great weapon design, great sound, great feel. That's part of why the game was able to keep me glued. Destiny seems to keep with the trend, but with an extremely refreshing feel, which is awesome. So how about you guys?
