Best Xbox One Games #19 – Destiny

Developer: Bungie

Synopsis: This shared-world MMO-like shooter introduces the player as a Guardians. You can use an unknown power referred to as “Light” to defend Earth against alien invasions, alongside a trusty mechanical “Ghost” confidant. Choose one of three classes, with Hunters being agile fighters, Warlocks focusing on using the Light for supernatural powers and Titans built to tank encounters. There are a host of single and multiplayer events to participate in, including popular FPS competitive modes. There are even dedicated raids that take hours to complete, with daily quests created to aid improvement of your character’s armor and weapons.

Why it’s one of the 50 best Xbox One games: Built from the ground up for the long game, Destiny has experienced a number of updates and expansions that keep the game fresh. Raids, weapons, maps, minigames, better voice acting for robots; Bungie has optimized the MMOFPS gameplay loop to sustain an audience throughout its early post-launch time. There are hundreds of hours you can spend in Destiny that can be played you get tired of it; a major upgrade over the dozens of hours it used to take. It’s a testament to the team’s ability to reconcile fan feedback, respond accordingly and balance the game favorably within a quick turnaround.

In a time when there are so many games coming out, trying to steal your focus away, Destiny has players coming back for more, time and time again.
