If you can't deal with the fact that I think the game is an inbalanced, inherently poorly designed and broken game for PvP with a subpar, repetitive Skinner's Box PvE grindfest that has a story written by a two year old, then I am sorry but them's the breaks. Bungie promised something grand, all I got was a child's pasta art with a crayon doodle on it.
Ok im done with this since you are not aswering any of my arguments and just fall back on "Its not a good game" and overuse of phychology terms (That are still not properly used btw).
1. Its a grind fest (It dosent have to be since PVP)
2. Higher LVL advantage in PVP (Its so maginal that it will not have any effect past LVL 22)
3. Story (Compare it to Halo CE or any other FPS new IP out there)
4. Overhype (This is the only LOGICAL reason for your grype, but it was done mostly by the press and fans not by Bungie)
Although you finally used a term properly and it describes your argument perfectly (highlighted)
