I can remember there being times when I was in a slump with gaming. It wasnâ€™t that I didnâ€™t have time to play or anything to play at all, but just a slump of not wanting to play. And that time may return, I donâ€™t know, but itâ€™s nowhere near happening at the moment. Granted, however, I am seemingly stuck in a time loop with Destiny 2, or maybe itâ€™s a loot loop.
Actually, itâ€™s a goal loop. The loot right now is meaningless for me. With the exception of a few items, Iâ€™m at the top of my game insofar as the gear is concerned. Thatâ€™s part of what you play Destiny 2 for is the gear – the weapons and armor. But, Destiny, like most games, have achievements in the form of triumphs. These are little specific goals that donâ€™t always involve loot. Those goals are now the reason I play. And Iâ€™m nearly done with them for my own satisfaction. Finishing all of them? Not by a long shot, but finishing the ones I want to, yeah…Iâ€™m nearly there.
The problem (of the best part) is that theyâ€™ll keep adding more. Some Iâ€™ll want to do and some Iâ€™ll not care at all to do, but thatâ€™s fine. Whatâ€™s there is enough to keep me playing. Keeps the drive alive, and Iâ€™m perfectly fine with that. I know some people have a problem with me ONLY ever coming on the show to say Iâ€™ve been playing Destiny, but itâ€™s currently the game I have the desire to play.
And that, for me, is better than not playing anything at all.
