Don’t you think that this year has been a year of rushed in games? Nearly every game we have looked up to has released with so much that still needed to be done. Take the example of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Assassin’s Creed Unity our very own Destiny.
There is a difference however, this last one wasn’t as prone to glitches and bugs as it was to missing elements that would have made it a complete game.
Now I am not undermining the popularity of Destiny in any way, but let’s just say the RPG element would have been more RPG if they have some additional attention to the story and the MMO aspect would have been more MMO-ish had they added enough social elements.
Another similar feature that has been missing, and will now continue to be missing is the Raid Matchmaking.
Luke Smith, the lead designer for the game at Bungie recently agreed people want changes in the game but said that Raid Matchmaking will be a challenge owing to the difficulty they are going to face in bring the ‘emotions’ into a matchmade activity. Apparently, the kind of content they want to create will not be suited for matchmaking events.
His opinion about LFG (Looking for Game) mechanics was different though:
“I think looking at the LFG [looking for game] – style mechanics is something we absolutely want to do. We would love to get to a place someday where you can advertise your intent to people. Where you can say; ‘I want to do this. Are you looking to do this with me?’ But we have absolutely no plans to do raid matchmaking at this time.”
So what do you think, is it going to be okay if there is no Raid Matchmaking for Destiny?
