Up until recently, I was an avid Destiny fanboy that used to obsess about my weaponry, light levels, and the series lore in general. But Destiny 2 turned out to be something that I just didn't find that much enjoyment in, especially when it came to the series's end-game and grinding. Lately, I've been seeing a whole lot of discussion online about how Monster Hunter World is a pretty good destination for the burned Destiny guardian...
I've actually never played a Monster Hunter game before, so all of this is definitely intriguing to me. I know a lot of people who are playing (and deeply love) the newest entry, so I've definitely been a little curious to try it out myself. It's particularly interesting to see how this Japanese game has come over and found a huge audience in the West by outdoing the very thing that Western games have been trying to achieve for the last couple of years now.
I imagine a lot of that has to do with Capcom having years to experiment with multiple titles, whereas many of these big AAA live service games are having to do all of their growing up while thousands of players rage at them. And it also probably has a good bit to do with the fact that Monster Hunter in general has never been designed around the grind in order to increase "player engagement" -- rather, it's all just there in the base game for you to enjoy and have fun, without worries about recurring spending and all the other metrics that Western publishers are typically trying to observe.
Anyway, all that to say -- do any of you Monster Hunters out there have some things to add for me? Would I enjoy this game if I loved Destiny?
