I believe that Destiny is the best game that has been created for quite some time. Sure their might be a game that comes close, but Destiny is the best.

If you think that Destiny is so bad tell me of another game that you believe is much better.

First all, I never said Destiny is a bad game, Your debate is about Destiny being the "greatest" video game. One example I shall provide of a better game is

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2


Here are the critical receptions for both games.


Destiny

GameRankings (XONE) 78.55%[73]
(PS4) 76.83%[74]
Metacritic (PS4) 76/100[75]
(XONE) 75/100[7



MW2


Score
GameRankings (X360) 93.57%[94]
(PS3) 93.42%[95]
(PC) 87.84%[96]
Metacritic (X360) 94/100[97]
(PS3) 94/100[98]
(PC) 86/100[99




I have proved MW2 is better, because it received better reviews.

Modern Warfare 2 is old and outdated, that is the only reason that is has good reviews. Destiny is new and fresh and they are still coming out with updates. When was the last time that they had an update for Modern Warfare 2? Like 4 years ago. Destiny had an update last month that improved the game play a lot.

Being old has nothing to do with why it has good reviews . The reason they don't update it anymore is because they moved on to newer games. Also just because Destiny had an update, doesn't mean its suddenly the greatest game in the world.


Also,

Far Cry 4
GameRankings (XONE) 85.92%[24]
(PS4) 83.76%[25]
(PC) 81.00%[26]
Metacritic (PS4) 85/100[27]
(XONE) 82/100[28]
(PC) 80/100[29]


Far Cry 4 had better ratings than Destiny, and it is a newer game, and it still receives updates to improve the game.

Reasons for voting decision: I strongly disagree with both of them and I think there are hundreds of video games preferable to anything created by Activision. However, Con, at least, gave tangible evidence and statistics, while Pro relied on basic, uncited arguments. Neither really said much before the debate was over, but I think Con wins by default.

Reasons for voting decision: Con showed that there were better games compared to Destiny after comparing it to 2 other games, which both got better reviews. Pro didn't refute these arguments, instead they simply made reference as to how the games Con mentioned were older, and Destiny got updates, neither of these points held any importance to the debate.
