    This is the entire history of the Destiny franchise. This is the story of Guardians everywhere. This is our story.
    Destiny has changed a LOT since 2008, so today we're going on a nostalgic journey through the ages to relive the Destiny experience over the years. If you're a veteran player, this will be a fascinating and nostalgic experience. If you're a newer player (or a player who took a break), this video will fill you in on what you missed. Since most of this content is no longer playable in the game, it's important to recognize it and reflect on how we got to where we are today. I hope you enjoy this video, and thank you so much for watching. Seriously. It means the world.
    Thanks to Bungie for creating such an awesome game. Much of the footage, trailers, and videos are from their social channels, which you can find here:

      I hate to say it, but I hope that instead of trying to squeeze another decade or whatever out of Destiny they make a new game that recaptures the magic of D1Y1. No matter what that feeling's not coming back with this series sheerly because we know everything about it now, for all its faults I miss when it was the wild west and nobody knew what they were doing. I'm hoping Matter will be good.

Being a gamer since a little kid I love that Destiny has kept me in it since the D1 Beta. No matter how old I get Destiny will always mean a lot to me between meeting new people, iconic moments in gaming, etc

    Crazy to think that, when Taken King launched, I was 15 and in my final year of middle school. It's the first time Destiny caught my attention since the live action trailer looked badass to me. I'm 23 now and looking forward to Lightfall, it's insane how fast time has gone by-

      Same bro I played the Alpha for destiny 1 and ran Titan all through everything. I played it with my cousins every night and I’d be staying up til 5 am on school days trying to beat Aetheon since we always wipe lmaooo. Then I met my second raid group randomly and I ran with them almost as much as my cousins, I miss them man they were hella cool and every night with them would always be hella funny. I was 14 when I started, freshman in highschool. Now I’m 23 and I’ve been out of highschool for about 6 years now it’s crazy. Btw Destiny 2 will never compare to Destiny 1 idk what it is but I feel like the adventure in D1 was a lot more magical compared to D2 where imo is kind of dry.

    Honestly, I realize how much fun I've had playing this franchise since it came out, and I have to consider it one of my most treasured game universes of all time. I'm still playing today, and have been pretty much continuously since the First Look Alpha, and that has to stand for something!

    The original destiny main menu almost brought tears to my eyes. The close friends I’ve made and the escape I had when things got tough in the real world when I was younger. Destiny got me through a lot of tough times to get my mind off things and it will remain the game I will hold dearest to my heart. I love destiny 2 but nothing compares to how destiny 1 was.

    holy hell was this a trip down memory lane. as a beta vet, i can't express the rise and fall of emotions this game put me through and the fact D1 was only a three-year roller coaster is shocking. so many insane experiences, the collective hype felt round the world at launch and again at Taken King, Rise of Iron bringing not only amazing world building but another new raid that somehow topped Taken King AND great story, just to have it all squander at D2 launch. Then we go through a very similar cycle up to Forsaken to now settle on what everyone knows and loves (or hates) upon the release of Shadow Keep. What a whirldwind this game has been and to think next year will be a decade of defending the Last City

    this is really great. It sheds a lot of light on why the game, post launch, seemed to have these sudden pivots in tone. The original sense of wonder and mystery really drew me in before d1 launched. The music and familiar planets with ruins of our lost civilization... And then came the grind and the goofy dialog.

    I'll never forget the original Destiny; I spent lots of hours in that game with my brother, friends, and random people across the globe. The PVPs, strikes, custom games, collecting materials for exotic weapons, and, of course, the raids. I miss those days and all the free time I had. I really enjoyed my late-night gaming session. I even had to cover the gap in my door so the light wouldn't go through, LMAO.

    The grind you speak of in Destiny 1 Year 1 was one of the greatest and worst feelings ever.

    God damn I sure missed a lot, joining the same season the Witch Queen came out. That's a really fantastic summary of everything that's happened so far and I'm so glad to be caught up not just in the lore but also in the history of the development of this game! Thanks!

    I was a COD only player when d1 came out. My online buddy suggested the game and I passed on buying when it first released. After a couple months I finally bought d1. Ever since then I've become a destiny diehard fan. This game has pulled me in and I have spent more time playing destiny than any other game. I really do love the game!!! So much nostalgia in this video.

    Right now as I’m separated from my pc and have been since light fall comes, I’ve watched a lot of your videos and as a super causal player (like I played witch queen for a day casual) watching a lot of the D2 community videos and especially this one has me so hyped to get back to my pc next week and cram hours into this game. This was truly a masterpiece of a video and I can’t even begin to fathom the amount of time that went in to the making of this craft. Thank you for this and your other videos and keep up the great content.

    I had no idea just how much content Destiny as a whole had and has. I started around near the end of Season of the Risen, and so when I looked at this video, I was baffled at just how much story there is and was. Anyway, lookin forward to LF and hopefully I can experience more of Destiny 2 as much as I can

    I think that this is going to forever be a hot take based on everyones reactions, but I always liked it when loot was more rare. I liked how greens and blues would still be something you had to go and decrypt. It added a lot to that special feeling when you finally got some legendary gear

    This may truly be one of my favorite videos on here, just going through the ups and downs of this franchise again in detail like this was wonderful. It's crazy, I was around 16-17 when the first game launched, barely a Junior in high school. Now I'm 26 with a daughter, a shitty job, and going to college finally. Oh how things change and evolve over time.

    When I was a kid looking back at the Hall franchise, I was always bummed that I had missed the time to experience the franchise and watch it evolve with such a great fanbase. Seeing this really stoked my memories and how much I appreciate destiny being the game that I was old enough to play end enjoy all the way since the launch in my freshman year of Highschool all the way up to now and watching it evolve since.

    oh the things I would do to go back and play Destiny for the very first time... seeing broman react to getting his frist vault of glass raid cloak for the hunter was just instant relatable in game hype. nothing will beat that. Destiny 1 truly was my favorite game of all time.

    As one of people who has played since the D1 Beta, its so nostalgic watching the history i lived. Everything you covered i remember clear as day "Everyone was working through The Taken King's story" and all i can think is YES YES THAT WAS ME, I faked a sickie that day and slammed through it, while everyone else had finished school and would be on there way home, i had beaten Oryx and was already working through quests and getting more exotics. And thats just 1 example. I wish i could relive those days, especially knowing now, those were the good days.

    I remember the first time I played destiny, at the time I was way too young therefore I was terrified to do the second mission because the thralls looked scary so I just spammed the first mission only. I finally got the courage to do the mission and I ended up enjoying destiny, looking back now makes me nearly cry from the levels of nostalgia coming from the opening music.

    9:00 This is why I loved destiny back when it launched. There weren’t any API leaks back then. That sense of discovery was what made exotics so unique. Now, we aren’t as surprised since we know what they are right off the bat (except for the raid exotics), and most of them are given like candy, especially armor.

    I was only 10 years old when this game first released in 2014 and fell in love with it. I was first introduced to the game by my brother who was playing Destiny, who has sadly passed away in 2020. I use to tell him how excited I was after every boss kill, XP level up, and core gameplay mechanics. The Destiny franchise is so close to my heart, as it created a bond between my family and friends. #Riseupguardians

    Being a newer player, and reaching the point of teetering between uninstalling and persisting with the grind, I find this video to be extremely important. Sometimes we forget the past, and we grow accustomed and entitled to the present. Watching this has allowed me to gain a greater appreciation of the amazing strides the game has made sense it's initial alpha release.
