At what point will the game be broken in two, and in the trash? Asking for a friend.
I don't know if I can answer that.
I'm trying to play it moderately, not get to addicted (which can be an issue for me) and I'm not bored yet. Take last night for an example. I played an hour last night and maybe 40 minutes before work this morning, ...and moved up from level 282 to 287. Sp the game gave me a few clearly marked challenges to do, I did them, and finished a quest for the MIDA. That kept me entertained.
Just my opinion here ....the game does a MUCH better job this time of balancing out the progression path from level 0 to level 20/305 iun terms of making 'what to do' a bit easier. For example, Public events have big indicators with timers on them. You ALWAYS know when to do it. You also don't have to follow just 'one' way, you can get there a whole bunch of different ways. And it seems like regardless of which, if you just keep following the big blazing 'MILESTONE' marker, it keeps giving you stuff to move you along. And between Crucible, public events, Strikes, Lost Sectors, Patrols, etc...there are like ten to twelve different things to keep doing. And even if some of them might get repetitious, like the Public events...well 1), they are fast (under 5 min) and 2), they don't get boring because as you get stronger, it gets more fun beating down the enemies that gave you problems earlier.
If PvP is your thing, you won't like Destiny. I think the PvP isn't that good. If you like PvP, but also like just shooting crap while exploring, getting loot, leveling up like some old school D&D, then Destiny is good old fashioned mindless fun.
The only '*' I would add to the above is that to someone who has never played Destiny before, it might be a bit tricky to navigate at first, trying to understand all the different rule sets. Engrams, infusions, mods, different characters doing different things, etc..The game does do a decent job of shoving you along where you need to go (even highlighting in the tower who you need to talk to), but ...I could see where it might be difficult.
I didn't even touch upon the Raid stuff. IMHO Destiny is two games. The above game I described...and then IF you get high enough and ALSO have friends to do the Raid. The Raid is where the game shines. The game is decent enough without raiding, but will probably get boring without some ultimate goal. If you can add the Raid activities as part of the game, then it's a
One other warning...if your friend gets into it, it can be a HUGE time suck. Consume hours by the days. Be careful.
