As a core player of Destiny I feel like we are becoming too limited in our power fantasy. We loot and shoot for better(ish) gear to come up with some kind of builds and when something steps out of line or becomes popular it gets nerfed to the ground. Why cant players play the way they want to? I understand things have to be fair in PVP, but PVE? Come on now. Sure, it cant get crazy... but nothing is too crazy right now. Can bungie truly afford to disappoint their fan base, their customers..... AGAIN?! Man.... these nerfs are disappointing, surely there could be a better way to balance the game... maybe make your bosses harder? Idk... I'm just left wondering if I'll stick with this game any longer. I love destiny, but I love looting, shooting, and feeling powerful and I feel all of this is fading. Rant done, I hope nothing but success for the franchise, but most importantly its fans!
Power fantasy is mowing down hordes of enemies with an awesome machine gun, walking up and punching the biggest guy in the room, killing gods against all odds. These are power fantasies. Pressing the instant win nuclear button on a handful of guys so you can do it again to the next group or standing still tapping a big guy over and over again on the head because you're too scared to walk up to is -blam!- shit. There's nothing powerful about it other than that it get's the job done extremely fast, which is what it all comes down to with loot addicts.
