Are Destiny players getting agitated too easily?

It's been a long, sordid affair for Destiny 2, and developer Bungie has taken a lot of flak -- some of it well-deserved given the issues with the game. But has it come to a point when a player's frustrations over the game take precedence ov...

The best stand up on Netflix right now
