Destiny works best on consoles because it has Bungie's extremely good console controls. Gunplay in Destiny 1 on PS4 felt great and I had a lot of fun with it.

There was not matchmaking for anything but strikes however and the hardest difficulty stuff was mostly just really boring exploit-encouraging nonsense. Oh ha, everything nearly one-shots you- time to farm up weapons that let you trivialize encounters, or stand in corners with your whole party and shoot through doors or exploit the AI in such and such a way, or whatever. No one ever gets difficulty right in the end.

I feel like its worth reiterating that Bungie has never been a good developer. They pretty much suck ass.
Yeah, I just went back and looked at all the games they ever made.  Myth I and II are the only games they made that I can say I legitimately really liked.  Halo multiplayer with a ton of people in the room was fun back in the day for the same reason Golden Eye was, but the game its self was pretty meh.

Halo 1 is one of those games that manages to be fun in spite of itself.  The maps in the single-player alone would have sunk a lesser game.  The horrible, endlessly-repeating-the-same-100ft-of-room-and-tunnel single player maps.  I remember somebody quipping "the main security measure against releasing the Flood was that anyone searching for them would just get bored and go home."

I remember spending most of my time in Halo 1 "gun-running" a la the early Counter-Strike betas cause of the weird ammo system.

I caved and spent the weekend playing. Finished the story which was good but a tad short. Finishing the story opens up a bunch of post-game activities so there is still plenty of game left - it's also the only way to get a sparrow so I felt the NEED to grind through the story. Fast travel is ok, but there are some really long traverses between travel points that you need a sparrow.

It's pretty much a continuation of Destiny 1, which I am torn on. All the baddies are the same... same factions, same weapons, same tactics (though the Fallen melee are a bit more aggressive).That was nice to see all the familiar factions and how they fit and how to beat them.

But on the other hand, it is exactly the same as the last game... nothing new in terms of big bads. Basically just Destiny 1 with new maps and slightly different grind focus. I liked Destiny 1 well enough that I am not dissatisfied, but paying $60 for what amounts to a new map and voice packs for the first game is a tad groan-worthy.

A cool feature I really liked is when you start the game fresh, it loads in your accomplishments from Destiny 1, recaps what you did, when you did, and who you were with - pretty cool to see when I beat the story, raided, etc. Was a bit taken aback when I noticed this was back in 2014... FFS, 3 years already?

Finished the story on two characters and am now running through the worlds after the red war. There's a lot of shit to do that wasn't there in the first game.

Guys, this game is a lot of FUN. The shooting just feels good, even with a controller.

The premier game for handicapped systems?

Pretty much feel I got most of what this can offer out of warframe already, and if I wanted to a PvP shooter it would probably be over-watch.

Gotta say, I'm liking this better than the first. I lost one of the guys who went into Destiny 1 (stupid ass is having a kid... I mean come on). So now I have to do strikes with strangers. The horror!

Even with a controller, the shooting just feels a lot tighter. And Destiny 1 was still pretty darn good for that.

I still have a PC version on pre-order as well, because...why not?  awesome, for real

Yeah, no.

With the upcoming Plains of Eidolon expansion for Warframe, I fail to see how Destiny 2 is better in any significant way.

Still no. Warframe’s shooting is still sloppier and bolting on some open-world shit isn’t going to help that.

I didn't find Destiny 2's shooting any better or worse than what I've played in Warframe, at least on the PC (might be different on console).  It's not like D2 is revolutionizing the FPS genre.  Besides, Warframe's expansion should bring it closer to what D2 has to offer WRT MMO like features.

I played Warframe on PC and PS4.  Destiny 1 & 2 shooting is better.  Obviously there is room for opinion here.  Destiny isn't breaking new ground as a game, but the rooty-tooty-point-n-shooty is the best I've played.

I should probably mention that I favor the bow in Warframe.  Also Destiny swordplay is kinda ass.
