Destiny, a MMO, first-person shooter game with an intergalactic theme, was created by Bungie and published by Activision. This game has received critical reviews from gamers worldwide and has fans creating a public events timer, a tool to estimate when and where events will take place.
Ultimately, players are questing for better gear (Legendary and Exotic to be more specific) which are the most rare in the game. Although these items may be rare in nature, it doesn’t mean that 10,000 other players don’t already have it — except with one certain case.
Brittany Levasseur took to Reddit and wrote a post explaining how her husband had been through seven brain surgeries within the last year. Something like that can take a huge toll, however, they discovered a very therapeutic way for him to regain his strength. Their doctor suggested he play Destiny and use it to exercise his brain as sort of mental therapy.
“It’s been a joy to watch him… It’s been a little over a week, and the game’s effect on him has been so strong. Weak for months, he is flourishing in more than just the game world. He has been going out more, doing chores, making jokes. The effect of playing the game on his mood has been almost staggering.”
This post became so popular and soon, Levasseur was in touch with Bungie’s community manager, Deej. Once it was learned how Levasseur’s husband was recovering and using Destiny as a tool, a “care package” was sent his way via Post Master in the Tower.
Waiting for him was a gun that has yet to be released later with the DLC expansions called The Fate of All Fools which turns out to be a Scout Rifle.
