Back to Destiny 2: Chapter 3: who are these people and why do I care?

Chapter 3 dropped and I’m not sure that there’s much to care about.

It’s tough to look at something so professional and yawn. There’s no way on Earth I could create anything a tenth as interesting, or pretty, or fluid. But to play it is just so…dry.  Move here, shoot. Run here, shoot. Stand here, die a lot.

 

The feeling is that there are a lot of characters and history that I’m SUPPOSED to care about…only if I’m willing to put in the time and effort to remember them. Or care.

I certainly don’t – half the time I’m not sure who is talking to me, or what the agenda is. I know they are characters who have continued over from Destiny – but for the life of me I can’t remember what their names are or what they are in charge of.

There’s Fillion’s “smartass” character, the deep voiced guy who gives me my missions. There’s enthusiastic guy who runs the PvP section.

I just remember spending hundreds of hours running around in World of Warcraft, completing quests and missions, but without a governing head, or an overall mission objective other than “get rich,” “get powerful,” or “survive!”

That was a lot more fun and memorable. This is just sort of…like…work.
