Which do you think will be the best aspect of Destiny? Maybe you're just interested in the customization? I hope it's Story over Gameplay! What do you think?!

  • I would say gameplay, because even if a game's story is amazing, I won't continue playing if it has horrible gameplay

      • Bungie is well known not only for their badass gameplay but also for their amazing story telling. I vote for both of them!

        • I choose the last one. I think it should all be equal but if i had to choose I'd choose gameplay

            This is a tough decision. They are doing something with the FPS genre that is quite innovative, and sounds amazing, so for the first time in a long time, I am just as curious and excited about gameplay as I am about story. There is so much more waiting to do. lol

            • Games that often fail or are just "B" games, even "C" games like CoD, don't achieve legendary status because they fail to implement all of these things wonderfully. You can have great gameplay and terrible story, or a great story with terrible gameplay, but it won't captivate you like the Elder Scrolls series, or even Halo: CE. It takes excelling in all those departments to create a game that will stand the test of time.

              • It's a Bungie game, so I'm hoping for a mind-blowing story.

              • Story usually only applies to linear campaigns, so I assume you mean the world they've built. Otherwise I'd have gone with gameplay or customization.

              • I'll take good gameplay over good story. Like Prototype. Or Halo.

                • Why would I want choose between a good story and good gameplay? I'm sure Destiny will have both.

                • Gameplay. A story is essential but if there is terrible gameplay to back it up what's the point?

                  • Who cares about the story? Most great games are known for their innovative and fun gameplay and that's what gives them their legacy. Although there are a few exceptions (Heavy Rain, Journey , etc.) but I think we can safely assume that Destiny wasn't meant to be like those exceptions.

                        • Gameplay over story any day and I really don't care as long as it's good and addictive.

                        • I loved Halo because of its story. However, Halo also had some amazing gameplay. If Bungie knows how to do anything- it's tell a rich story behind innovative gameplay.
