Give Me Games! Episode 5: Final Word on Destiny

Bungie's highly-anticipated space shooter Destiny has been out for a few weeks now, and we still can't stop playing it. As I mentioned in my review, the creators of Halo have once again flexed their expertise in crafting refined FPS gameplay while immersing you in some truly jaw-dropping intergalactic vistas.

However, Destiny is far from perfect, and critics and fans alike have been debating whether or not this ambitious, RPG-tinted shooter bites off more than it can chew. With a story that's surprisingly hollow for a Bungie game and a repetitive reward system that makes it tough to find good gear, will Destiny stand the test of time?
