    Nothing wrong with ADS nor are all the weapons identical

    Taking part of my post out of context is fine but Bungie made halo games didn't have ADS

    So, I want to start by saying that Destiny 2 has excellent graphics, a good plot and a lot of other nice things. I liked the game and impressed ... But after the end of its storyline, the game turns into an ordinary RPG. After you have passed the plot in the game there is nothing to do

    It's not even an RPG. I wish it was an RPG, there's near zero customization and character building.
    Essentially all you do is raise your power level like it's a dragon ball z simulator. None of the stats matter. Most of the gear is crap. All that matters is one number: your stupid power level.

    Exactly.
    I am playing it currently and I'm just going through the story and then I'll quit (got it for free during that November offer).
    Even the classes aren't really different. You always have your grenade power, your movement power and your melee power. Only the "aura" power and super ability really differ.
    There are four damage types, and each class can equip all weapons.
    You can oh-so-slighty change what exactly your movement/grenade/melee/super does. I.e. instead of one big explosion, you might get a lot of smaller ones that have homing, etc.
    But in the end, all that really matter is indeed your power level, which is the average power of all your equipped items (I think?). The power of a single weapon matters as much for the damage as the shoes you have equipped. Just... lol

    It's all very basic. I'd say worth playing through once if you are into the story (and to be honest, some of the locations do look rather amazing). At least, if you got it for very cheap or free.
    But I find it puzzling that anyone would want to stick with the game longer than that.

    PS: You cannot toggle your own flashlight in the game. The game decides when you "need" it. That should tell you all you need to know about the design principles :lol:

    This game makes Dragon Age 2's repeating dungeons and spawning mobs look like a pinnacle of design. Also everything feels like it's made of cardboard, no feel of weight at all.

    Consoles, a dev admitted it was because it hurts performance if a bunch of people toggle their lights on.

    Oh, boy...
    That's just idiotic. Worked fine for decades in other games (including on consoles), but now it's too much? :lol:
    Nobody says other players' flashlights have to cast shadows for everyone else (shadow calculations are costly, light calculations not really).
    At least it's not made with Unity I guess? ;)

    This is largely a non-issue. Many good games are designed the same way. Recently, Resident evil 2 does the same thing.

    The shooting is pretty good. You don't need weight in what is essentially a super powered shooter, Doom doesn't have weight either.

    It's console first, you can tell because it's designed for retards.

    Don't bother. Sully is one of the biggest retards on the Codex. I don't even think he owns a PC. As for this game... my interest dropped completely when they crammed it with so much DLC/expansions. Don't feel like spending $200 for the complete game.

    I haven't played the RE2 remake (nor the original, tbh, never really was interested in the series), so I can't comment on that. Maybe that game did it better.
    But if a game features dark areas and a flashlight (well, technically, your floating companion cube produces the light) and it doesn't allow you turn the flashlight on/off at will and neither does it turn on automatically in all areas you'd want it to, then that is just plain bad design.
    It's also downright stupid from a production standpoint, instead of just letting the person who knows when the player would need light control it (the players themselves), a dozen or more people who have no clue when the player would need it control and have to set it manually per each section of a level. Or they could automate it (detect when it is dark), but they didn't even do that. I'm 100% sure some designers placed manual flashlight triggers and that's just :?
    I simply won't accept the technical reasoning as the very same thing has been possible from the late 90s without a problem, it would be possible today on consoles.

    Well I hope Bungie guys earn a lot of money with this self-publishing on Steam, so they finally re-release their older games like Myth and Marathon on Steam and GOG.
