Discuss all things Destiny.
8/23/2014 6:48:07 PM

Let's all face facts so that we can strengthen our community

1. Exclusivity sucks balls 2. PS4 is slightly better than Xbox one, but barely 3. Sony is slightly better than Microsoft, but has the exact same goal: make profit 4. Xbox live is slightly better than PSN, but barely 5. The exploration areas in Destiny aren't as big as we all hoped, but Bungie still says that this is the biggest game they've ever made, and 500 people have been working on it daily, so we shouldn't jump to conclusions till we experience the real deal for ourselves. 6. Just because you disagree with someone, doesn't mean you should disrespect them. Start a discussion with condescension, and its no longer a discussion. In an argument, both you and the other guy think you're right, and so you should judge the other person with that in mind. If they're being calm and respectful and you're being rude and malicious, then it doesn't matter if you're right or not, you still look like a dick. 7. Trolls are a part of life, learn to recognise them. 8. That person you just tore to shreds on the forum could genuinely be a well-meaning 11 year old. I'm not saying you should censor your opinion, but just remind yourself every now and then that there actually are vulnerable little kids on these forums. 9. People are entitled to their opinion about Destiny. Somebody has had an experience, and you can't change that experience. If someone 'just doesn't like it', then you could write a whole series of books about why you disagree, and it wouldn't change a thing about the experience they had. You can disagree with their reasoning, but you can't change their experience. 10. Nobody's perfect (least of all me), but if we treat people harshly then they'll never change. Studies have shown that an attack on our beliefs, triggers the same response in the brain as a physical attack. We get defensive, even if we are proven wrong, and especially if we've been treated with vitriol or condescension. Give people a chance to admit their wrongs, and don't be so hasty to use insults and inflammatory language. This is what drives people apart in a place that's meant to bring people together. Be brave, be the change.
