Discuss all things Destiny.

Things game developers need to stop doing. (destiny related)

Here are some things that are ticking me off in games. 1. [b]Overusing invisible barriers[/b]. Yes I understand the need to block off certain areas. But do you really have to have invisible barriers on the roofs of buildings that should be well within reach? When I was playing the alpha and beta, I really wanted to explore the buildings and get a good view of the surrounding land. But I was foiled by a stupid invisible barrier. Bungie, you didn't have this problem with halos 1-3. You didn't give a damn if we found a way to get out of the level on campaign mode. Why did you suddenly start caring? Why do you care if I get on top of a building that by all logic, I should be able to access? Also, what's up with the "You are leaving the battlefield, turn back or die" messages? You say you want this game to be about exploration, but why can't we explore the crumbled buildings?? Why are we restrained by all these barriers? 2. [b]Small text[/b]. When did it become a bad idea to have reasonably sized font? Yes I have a high-def TV and yes it is 1080p. Yet Destiny's text was still rather small and hard to read. 3.[b]Getting rid of splitscreen[/b]. Yes I've heard of the reasoning behind splitscreen's exclusion: bungie wants the best graphics possible. Which sounded perfectly reasonable......until I heard that Bungie went with 30 FPS to have graphic parity across all systems. This seems to contradict their goal of having the best graphics possible. Which brings me to the next issue: 4. [b]Graphics parity[/b]. Who gives a shit about it? It makes no sense to have 30 fps on ps4 just because other systems cannot do 60 fps. We aren't going to have cross-platform multiplayer, so why do you give a damn about graphics parity? Nobody is going to have an advantage due to better graphics. Plus, nowadays I actually get a headache from 30 fps on a HDTV. Don't get me wrong, Destiny runs very smoothly even with 30 FPS, but I still got a headache playing it. I had to take ibuprofen to ward off the pain.
