We need a cure for Destinyitis

Nov 9, 2017

Confession time; I’m not a big fan of Destiny (the game, not the abstract concept of predetermined events). I mean, it’s okay, but the fact that so many people are borderline obsessed with it baffles me. If you love it – and, statistically, you probably do – I’m cool with that.
