Destiny 

 

When Destiny came in for review here at Family Friendly Gaming there was a collective groan. No one wanted to touch it. No one wanted to play it. No one wanted to review it. All of us came up with reasons why we should not be the one to review it. The EIC had all of us gather around and draw straws. I drew the short one, so I played it, and am now reviewing it.

The first thing I noticed about Destiny is the rating. Why is Destiny rated 'T' for Thirteen and older only? All the press assets reference two 'M' for Seventeen and older only games. Is this a new ESRB scandal in the making? Did money change hands to get a lower rating? Which investigative journalists will hunt down that story?

We get to create our character. I tried to make one that looked like Optimus Prime. Then we learn about the world of Destiny. Humanity was once great, and has since been in decline. The last free human city has guardians that are trying to restore what once was. Guess what we get to be? A guardian.

Skeets comes flying around and finds us - Booster Gold. *sigh* I wish. The flying ghost thing reminded me of Skeets, but there was no Booster Gold. The game then teaches us how to move, shoot, kill, murder, destroy, punch, and generally make a nuisance of ourselves.

Destiny teaches us to get them before they get us. This is an ultra violent video game that could easily fit under the label of murder simulator. It is scary, dark, and has some horror elements to it. All the killing gets boring really fast. Like in the first level.

I then got into a city and found out why Destiny needs the Internet. There are all these other players running all around. Some of them have profane and highly offensive names. This made me immediately worry about bandwidth. Families have to share the Internet and online games like Destiny are a major drain on their resources.

If you can stomach all of the violence, blood, death, murder, and mayhem you will find that your character can level up. Leveling up opens up new skills like grenades. It can take some major detox to re-acclimate your mind to being sensitive to others after playing Destiny. I found this online game increased my aggression and selfishness.

Families need to be aware of the violence, online nature, bandwidth, language, and possible migraines due to this first person shooter (FPS). In my opinion Destiny should be rated 'M' for seventeen and older only. It was a real drain spiritually to play and review this game.

Family Friendly Gaming has focused on the positives of the video game industry for close to ten years. Destiny does not fit into that umbrella. It is on the other side. Families would be wise to steer clear of this game since it will generate real world problems.
