Destiny 2

Destiny 2 is a free-to-play online-only multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Bungie. I used to play Halo a lot back in the day (also by Bungie), and it feels with Destiny 2 they took the best parts of Halo and expanded on them…at least that’s how it feels.

I was on a coaching call yesterday, and the coach invited someone else to share what they liked about a game they were into. He also invited them to see if they could incorporate the things they liked about the game into their real life. I thought that’d be an interested exercise for me to do about game I’m into – Destiny 2.

  • It Runs Decently on a Late 2013 iMac.
    • Destiny 2 runs decently on my old iMac. When I play it’s smooth, although I do have to put it at the lowest graphics setting and there are occasional crashes.
  • It’s Free!
    • Free is cool 🙂

Here’s some things I like that can possibly…in the future (and some now)…be experienced in real life.

  • There’s a lot of space and maps to explore
    • New maps were badass in Halo, so I’m glad they have a lot of space in the game to explore different places. I remember gettin amp’d up when a new map was gonna drop in Halo.
    • Why can’t I have more exploration in real life? I know there’s this thing called Covid-19 out there, but does that have to stop me dead in my tracks from exploring everything? No. “What can I explore safely?” is the question.
  • There are a lot of guns
    • They give you LOTS of guns to choose from (over 600) and you can carry and swap out hella guns anywhere at any time. Maybe I need to buy a gun in real life? I don’t have any yet.
  • You can call your vehicle, and there are multiple vehicles to drive
    • Having a badass vehicle is one thing. Walking around exploring territory and being able to call up for your vehicle instantly to ride around in? Yooo son. That’s crazy. Engineers, we gotta make this shit happen in real life. You know how wild that would be?
  • Teamwork is pretty badass
    • Most times I don’t play unless my friends play. If friends aren’t there, it’s still cool playing with real people either against other real people or bots.
    • There are lots of ways to incorporate teamwork in projects in real life that are wins across the board.
  • There is A LOT to the game because of the dedication to customization, and there are lots of instructions and directions
    • Because there is so much to the game, they equip you with lots of direction and instruction. They give you everything you need to have a rich and full experience in the game.
    • This got me thinking…when we were born it’s almost like we started a game here on Earth. Unless your parents were hella badass, you most likely DIDN’T get everything you needed to have a rich and full experience, but those resources are more easily available now because of the internet. You can get what you didn’t grow up having, and maybe even find more things you didn’t know you needed. With the project Welcome Home I’m working on, I want to help people connect with more elements to make their lives more badass.

Overall it’s been a great game and I’m liking it. Send me a friend request on Steam (Allenx05).
