Why is this game so fucking bad
>weapons are slow as fuck
>combat is just a slower version of dark souls
>have to do stupid ass animations when using literally any item

MH
Borrowed my friend's copy cause the cover art interested me.

Though i would never play another MH til 3U.

Attack numbers are scaled back, the whole game is a hell of a lot flashier, hunting arts are like abilities you can use to dodge or attack with each weapon getting different ones, and styles actually add a bit of variety to the various weapons.

are the numbers scaled back or is it like Portable 3rd where they just show the true, uninflated numbers?

In Portable 3rd they show the true raw damage for each weapon, so all the starter weapons all have 50 power (or whatever, I don't remember the exact number).

In all the other games the weapon power the game shows you is the weapon's true raw damage stat multiplied depending on the weapon class. It's why Greatswords and Hammers always show a high damage stat in-game; their multiplier is like x5 or something.
>>
>>324196301
Tri

it's the only game series that I can honestly say has made consistent improvements game-to-game, except for the removal of Bowgun customization.

>>
>>324200117
It's nice to have the true raw stat but neither are super helpful alone. On weapons every different attack animation has it's own 'motion value' which acts as a modifier to (usually) reduce the damage. Very few attacks have a motion value of 100% or even close. A lot of attacks only apply something like 30-40% of your true raw damage. Some weapons like switchaxe are really deceptive, they show relatively high attack stats but have pretty poor motion values on most of their attacks.

Diablos is super fucking easy anon. If he turns to you then guard/dodge. If he digs, put up your weapon or just turtle. Literally all Diablos does is charge, sandswim, and scream. Black Diablos is a little worse since iirc she motion tracks while enraged but even then it's still survivable.

Monster Hunter 1.
Picked it up too late for the online play sadly.

I love the franchise to death and back, but I feel that the recent titles are giving way too much power to the hunters without giving a corresponding boost to the monsters over a gradual pace.
So you go through low rank, high rank, starter G rank with everything pretty easy, then BOOM suddenly everything ratchet ups to crazy levels and suddenly 140s.

Also, totally not the games fault but I'm not a fan of the general trend of "You aren't using *insert set here* then you are worthless".
Especially when the people who say that are usually the ones who fail more often.

Slowness is an integral part.

Monster Hunter isn't a fast-action button masher. It's about economy of movement, recognizing the time various moves take and calculating what is best for the situation. Mastery of said system let's you do things like a full Greatsword charge on a monster that isn't stunned.

I think it helps it appeal to more people, since everything isn't twitch-button gameplay it's more accessible to new players.

Tri as well

I've played Tri, 4U, and I'm currently playing X but I can never manage to get into the series enough to get to G rank.

On top of that, early game is a drag. It's there to help you get your inventory established for the later quests, as well as to serve as a tutorial for newcomers, and I can't really fault them much for that. But at the same time, when you've already played the previous entries in the series, having to go through 1* and 2* quests is a drag when you know the real meat only begins much, much later.

I only keep coming back because who doesn't enjoy hitting big things with a large weapon

Its painful in MH1 because the real meat is locked behind egg quests.

It's mechanically somewhere between MHG and MHFU, plus some MMOlike elements like damage numbers.
The game has pay to win consumables.
Also, daily quest limit (of 10). To play more, you have to pay.

Basically, being an SnS user means that you no longer need Mind's Eye or Earplugs/HGE. Because the Mind's Eye coating means you'll never bounce. And the roundhouse slash can negate all monster roars.

Lock On makes these types of games too easy

The idea behind the maps isn't a "world" per say, so much as each area is a unique arena where you fight the monster. Open world would ruin the game.

It's less a problem now but when the games were on PSP, or pre CPP, the camera was ass and lock on would've been amazing. It's not like your character would necessarily have to strafe with lock on, just to keep the camera on him.

It would fundamentally change the game, but it could use some mixing up at this point and it would make you feel more like your hunting monsters

Not locking on makes it a thousand times easier to quickly roll behind things to backstab them. Plus it's better for dealing with multiple enemies at once than locking on is, you can angle your swings to stagger multiple enemies easier.

When you kill a monster, you should be able to choose to be rewarded in monster parts rather than the money bounty.

So if the bounty is 5000z, you can either get 5000z or you can select up to 5000z's worth of monster parts to take.

"Rare" parts would obviously be more expensive, regular mats (like monster bone and ores) would be inexpensive.

This would completely replace the random drop system, so you don't get any random drops in your quest rewards. You CAN still carve, though. although doing so decreases your bounty as you aren't delivering a complete carcass.

On the other side of the fence, after capturing a particular monster, its parts should be able to be purchased from vendors in the future (assuming the Guild carts them off and sets up a breeding program for infinite mats). The particular pieces available here would be random, but they'd be available nonetheless.

So with this system there would be virtually no fighting the RNG, while still maintaining the incentive to fight the same monster multiple times. It would keep the "grind" elements but make you feel like you're actually working towards a goal, not just bashing your head against a wall until what you want drops out.

If they made this one change then MH games would be GOAT.

They weren't hard, they were just a pain to solo since Hades had so much HP. If you weren't hitting his face 100% of the time with the most broken set in the world you'd time out.

The hardest quest is still MH2's Yama. Without bring Frontier's retarded Redjang into it.

She's just the monster version of a mix set.
If hunters can do it, so can monsters.

No, integrate them in your HR experience so you don't out-rank them in gear.

emulator?

>>324196301
FU
Absolutely love it but with every new installment i'm always slightly disappointed that they are adding new things but never address ages old issues like weapon balancing or how elements work. And if they do, they usually do the opposite of what is needed, that is, they just nerf everything that's not, like, 3 pure raw GSs into the ground and call it a good work. Camera would really like to get some damn rework. A bunch of other nitpicks, but no use talking about them anyway
>>
>>324225589
But people would whine there would be more grinding if elements are enforced.

>>324225308
You wot? Original director has largely been the same for every mainline title.

He got mixed up with Producer for the Director.

Come to think of it, Fujioka went off to make Monster Eggs.

The best MH games were all directed by Ichinose.
