Monster Hunter going to be worth it?

Never played any of them. Not even too sure what it's about, but I hear the name tossed around an awful lot. Is it worth picking up?

P.S. Also, how about Dragon Quest? For some reason, I always thought these two games to be the same.

if you have a psp or vita you could get them now
its not a newb friendly game and to get the best out of it, you'll need to adapt to a new control scheme (right stick camera control blows for MH)

You can spend tons and tons of time in the game. Whether you enjoy it or not will depend on your love of its mechanics.

I spent about 80 hours on it, but in the end I quit before I got "too" far.

Monster Hunter is pretty much a game entirely made up of killing/capturing various monsters for materials for crafting... It's not really an RPG. Think of it as a fairly difficult action game focused almost entirely around long boss battles...

Dragon Quest is an RPG series in the most classic sense. Not even remotely similar.

You're in a hub and taking quests till you defeat the most powerful monster. Story is very minimal

The appeal comes from fighting numerous large monsters that are much more powerful than you (there's a huge emphasis on knowing it's attack pattern and when it's safe/not safe to attack it) with or without 2-3 other people and grinding on certain bosses to obtain material needed to craft/upgrade armors and weapons. It's a pretty difficult game, but it's rewarding and fun. There's enough variety if you get tired of grinding on one monster.
