    Is this really unpopular? Specially on this forum. If anything, it seems to be the general consensus, at least in recent times (even if the game has its fair share of detractors).

    Always found Halo to be the most forgettable thing ever, never got into it one bit, it was only fun when Multiplayer and not because of any visual or narrative element.

    Most overly militarized fiction is completely uninteresting to me, soecially when it's very uncritical of any of it. The Motocross equipment look of the protagonist doesn't help even one bit for me.

    Capitalism is when you got iPhone but no baby daddy.

    Also:
    I can't believe the motocross comparison for Halo armor. I hate it because it's true. :x
    ODST is basically motocross gear.

    Too bad Destiny's original plot was completely reworked because Activision didn't like how involved it was and we instead got a very vague and generic story that had little to any weight to it. Destiny could have been the next Halo in terms of worldbuilding but instead it's Halo Borderlands.
    Destiny does have more potential but it's never really sought after. It says something when you can say the potentials of Destiny are far more than Halo but Halo had the far more compelling campaigns and stories (and they aren't that compelling, they're just fun campaigns).

    Yep. This exactly. I think I’d just have more fun trying to come up with stuff that is Destiny related. I did not even know about activision’s story revision choices, that sucks.

    Pretty much the story was actually told and it involved Osiris (the guy from the DLC of the second game) a lot more. Activision or someone in the leads of the game pretty much saw all this work that had already been done and said "How are players going to feel like other players could exist if their character is that important" or some shit and told them to scrap all that work and restart the story and make it so players didn't feel too important but important enough that they helped essentially. It seemed really stupid and like advice that someone who has never played games gave.

    Destiny 1 crucible is still fun, Destiny 2 crucible is a mixed bag for me but I stopped playing after the Moon Expansion.

    Unpopular Opinion: Power toms on old drum kits from the 1990's suck ass. I got to try one from my friend's old Mapex kit from '94. It had a 13x11 and a 12x10 power tom arranged above the bass drum. Mic'd it up, tried my damndest to tune it to where it'd sound decent and not too boomy. But they resonate too much. I had to put a pair of socks in the toms just to cut it and get a decent punch. I understand now why drum companies cut back an inch or so off of toms after the 90's. 12x9 and a 13x10 with Aquarian response heads would work damn near perfect for me.

    The new sound for me was when everyone realized that Stewart Copeland from The Police was right.

    Isn't +1 in a stat fairly minimal in its impact on your character since you get stat points every couple of levels?
