Highest selling doesn't mean best and it's easy to be the highest selling when its on every single platform. World does way too many things wrong and I am for sure, not on a toaster. Ryzen 5 2600 4.0ghz, RX 580 8GB, 16gb ram
Here is a brief list of things MHW gets wrong from my steam review
-Having to watch cutscenes to play online, forced story, lack of weapon cosmetic variety, lack of armors, too easy to craft full sets, no g rank, only way to message people is by pausing the game (given that the online is working which 99% of the time its not), casualized, lack of monster variety, bland locations except for coral highlands, no more skills so therefore a lack of movement options compared to generations.
And none of that is even mentioning the shoddy PC port. There is a reason it has a 42% rating on steam and lowering because it's a bad Monster Hunter game. Good game, bad monster hunter game. The only reason its getting praised by console players is because this is the first one they've ever played so it was like "wow nothing can get better than mediocrity because i am clueless!"
I think MonHun players are blown away because they're not subject to several loading screens as they chase their target through several teeny tiny areas. If you prefer that, that's fine and it's your opinion. For others they prefer having the giant seamless environment. Odd that your steam review doesn't mention graphical quality. It's a lot more rational than your prior post that I had quoted. "Forced story" got a big chuckle out of me.
