John Carpenter Is Currently Playing Lots of Destiny 2 and Enjoying It

Alessio Palumbo

John Carpenter probably needs no introduction, but on the off chance that you're not familiar with the renown film director, he made classics like Halloween, Escape from New York, The Thing, Christine, and Starman to name a few.

It turns out that he's also quite the videogames fan. Back in May, he praised Arkane's Prey on Twitter, as you can see in the tweet below.

Now, though, Carpenter has moved on to Bungie's recently released Destiny 2, as reported in an interview published two days ago by The Guardian.

Hi John. What have you been up to?

I’ve been playing the video game Destiny 2. It’s a sci-fi game. It’s fun.

I’ve heard of that. Isn’t it really hard and involves shooting aliens?

Oh, it is hard. That’s why I’ve dedicated my life to learning how to play it. At my age why not? It keeps me out of trouble.

Destiny 2 had strong reviews upon launch, including ours, where Kai wrote:

Destiny 2 is one of those rare experiences that continues to surprise me the more I play. While I wish that more carried over from my years with the first game, my Awoken Warlock had a good reason to start from the beginning and work his way up to a truer badass than he once was. From the opening moments to long beyond taking out the head of the Red Legion, there’s so much new and refined content that no players should walk away from Destiny 2 wanting more. Whether you’re in it for the PvE content and raiding weekly or rolling with a fireteam in the crucible and hitting the top of the PvP ladders, there’s something for everybody. This is simply Destiny at its very best and you’re going to want to bring some friends along for the afterparty.

In a couple weeks it will be available for PC, too, with lots of improvements ranging from unlocked frame rate to enhanced graphics, FOV slider and much more. Stay tuned for our review of this version.
