Destiny Nominated for Best New Game on the Horizon - Dragon Slayer Awards 2014

There's a reason (or two) that Destiny has been nominated for Best New Game on the Horizon for this year's Dragon Slayer Awards.

The Dragon Slayer Awards have entered their last phase, which means it's time for you to choose the final winners in each category. Destiny has reached the final stage for Best New Game on the Horizon, and I'm going to tell you why.

If you didn't know already, Destiny is sort of a big deal. It's Bungie's first person shooter massively multiplayer online role playing game (FPSMMORPG for short), and it's currently slated to be a console exclusive. An MMO... on console. And it runs at 1080p--yes, even the Xbox One.

As horribly terrifying as "an MMO on console" probably sounds to the MMO veterans of the world, Destiny has not yet disappointed. Having been played already in Alpha and Beta forms, the game has been incredibly received. Well, it's not that incredible, given all of the hype surrounding the game. 

Speaking of hype, this game's got a lot of it. Other than being featured numerous times on GameSkinny by the likes of Fathoms_4209 and others, Destiny has garnered numerous pre-release awards in the time since it went under the code name Project Tiger

Also, it's been referred to countless times as "the future of gaming." How does the competition stand a chance?

So if you think this game is deserving of all of the hype it's getting, go ahead and vote for it on the Dragon Slayer Awards voting page. And while you're at it, just vote in all of the other categories, too.

Also, check out this game's competition in the Best New Game on the Horizon at GameSkinny's landing page. An informed electorate makes for a deserving winner.

    I Just don't think it can be given best game on the horizon whilst it is writing of PC as a platform, at the moment I have no reason why I would purchase either a PS4 or Xbox One and my PS3 just won't give it any justice. Whereas running it on my PC will blow all of the systems out of the water seeing as it was more powerful than the PS4 before I have have just carried out a full upgrade of my machine. Just make the announcement Activision/Bungie!

    What about the fact, though, that a number of the other choices in this category are PC exclusives? It can be a great game without performing at the same level of a PC game. What makes a game fun are the mechanics, balancing, and pacing, all of which are surely attainable on any level hardware.
