I tried to get into Monster Hunter twice, once on the original PS2 release (on the recommendation of my best friend in high school), and again when World released. Both times I failed, the series is just not very accessible for newcomers, nor did there seem to be a good enough story to carrot on a stick incentive newcomers in order to get them past the steep learning curve. Instead of story the game relies on co-op focused gameplay that I didn’t find particularly good.
