Monster Hunter: it's a series I've always meant to try, but it just seems so intimidating.
There's the fact that you're jumping into a series halfway through -- even if there is no real 'story' to worry about. There's the whole upgrading/stat overload thing to deal with. Then there's Monster Hunter's reputation for being extremely difficult.
Then there's the time investment thing: almost everyone I know who plays Monster Hunter really plays Monster Hunter. It becomes all they play. It becomes an obsession. I guess what I'm trying to say here is this: no-one plays Monster Hunter for 20 hours and moves along with a spring in their step. It's either a couple of hours -- whoops not for me -- or 5000 goddamn hours, give-up-sustenance-meditate-on-mountains-whilst-playing-Monster-Hunter. That's the choice you have here. I'm not sure I'm ready for that.
Because I know I'm gonna love Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate if I play it. I'm all too aware of this fact. "If you like Dark Souls," people tell me, "you'll love Monster Hunter."
I really like Dark Souls. What would a game like Monster Hunter do to my life? I'm afraid to find out.
Anyway, this is your chance: this is your chance to gush so hard about Monster Hunter4 Ultimate that I'll actually consider playing it for real. You have a proper chance to ruin my life.
USE THIS POWER WISELY.
