    I played the old campaigns

    Run through them again and see if they still hold up.

      I got back into the game in Season 21 and played all the campaigns then. I enjoyed all of them. Shadowkeep was very cool, I felt bad for Eris. Witch Queen was fun, I found the story gripping. Lightfall was kinda meh, but Strand is so powerful. Every campaign doesn’t need to be amazing much like every season of a TV show need to be amazing, but I’ll still watch Futurama and Bones and The Office over and over.

      The only campaign I haven’t played again is Beyond Light, which I mostly finished back when it came out.

      I think the part I disliked the most of all the campaigns was getting Strand meditations for my Banner of War Titan. But the levels were fun to play even if the story wasn’t great.

      We’re spending $15 every few months. That costs way less than a full season of a TV show or even a single movie, especially in the theater, and we play Destiny for many more hours than watch a TV season or movie.

        The point I was trying to make is you can’t play the old campaigns anymore. The old campaigns are gone. New players are stepping into beyond light not knowing who the fuck any of these people are, or what the significance of darkness is. If they’re f2p they don’t even have that, just the seasonal shit that is tied to campaigns they didn’t even do. The model sucks and alienates new players while older players drop off. I started in season of the forge and loved it. I played for years until the grind became too repetitive for me and I haven’t touched it in ages and probably won’t ever again. Sure, it’s cheaper than a sub, but the amount of content we get for it? Not worth. And locking weapons behind unplayable DLC is the scummiest shit I have ever seen.

          Oh, I understand, thanks for explaining. Yeah, the inability to play the Red War saga is sad. I dropped off kind of soon after the Red War. If there weren’t YouTubers with lore videos, I’d be really lost now.

          So, unlike a TV show, you can’t go back and enjoy it from episode 1, you just have to strap in and hope you can hold on while they fling content at you to see if something sticks. Like what they’re doing with the new Crucible mode, Checkmate, they’re going to use it to change all of Crucible.
