Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate from the eyes of a newb

From the article, "Without realizing it at the time, I had already fallen into the Monster Hunter rabbit hole. I had acquired an interest in a game that I initially hated. My constant search to find out what’s so special about Monster Hunter resulted in me buying Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate a day after its launch. That has never happened to me before.

Upon starting the full game, I realized my initial negative reaction was due to a bad demo. It did a really bad job of explaining the world of Monster Hunter to new players. It assumed you were already a fan. " (Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Wii U)

Totally agree with the author, as a big fan of Monster Hunter I can tell anyone whose first MH experience was that demo to disregard it - it's a terrible demo that does absolutely nothing to demonstrate the game as a whole. Given the scale of the game I would be hard pressed to even suggest how anyone could actually demo it and get a good impression of the overall experience, I actually don't think it's possible. It's the kind of game you could plow more than 100 hours in to and still not be satisfied that you have done all you can. It's an experience.

Same for me i love monster hunter but when i got the demo i was like how the hell is someone new to this going to know how to play. If the want to get new people to get into monster hunter, they really should have put out a demo for beginners
