I played both and I greatly preferred Fire Emblem. Monster Hunter was way too grindy for my tastes and personally I didn't even find the combat that fun. To be fair I am someone who greatly prefers turn based strategy games to just about any other genre, so you may want to more opinions. Neither gaming is lacking for content and if you like them either one will last dozens of hours, so it may just be whichever genre you prefer more.

FE is great but if you like the farming/grinding/epic battles of MH type games, content is king and MH is the ruler.

You'll spend hundreds of hours in Monster Hunter.

For that reason alone go for it imo. I'm at 120+ hours and have so much left to go.

I own them both, and they are both great games, but I vastly prefer MH

They are quite different kinds of games though. Just watch videos of gameplay and decide what looks more interesting to you.

MH is about killing giant monsters with giant weapons in colorful armor and using those monster parts to create better weapons and armor. HUGE emphasis on realtime skill, and you feel like you are really getting better when you beat a new monster.... not that you just grinded to a sufficient level.

FE is a different kind of game in which you fight army vs army, can grind to your hearts content until you get god characters, and puts emphasis on strategy and planning out your attacks with no real time reactions required.

MH3 is taking more of my attention than Fire emblem ever has.

Just be warned, especially when you are first starting out, MH can be hard as balls
