Making MH more accessible will open it to a broader audience.


You'd think a fan of the series would welcome change that makes it easier for newcomers while still retaining the core gameplay. Everything I've seen looks like the Monster Hunter I know and love but finally making use of powerful hardware in relation to what they've used in the past.

MH has never had health scale to the players. Singleplayer is set and multiplayer is set to 2-4 players by default.

^This. And for the first time in the franchise, there is no dedicated single-player content. Every quest can either be done solo or multi, with no change to monster health, attacks, etc.

Highlighting weak zones would be against the spirit of the game, I feel, but damage numbers don't bother me.


Damage numbers are as much against the spirit of the game as highlighting weak zones. It might seem minor in comparison, but this is how it starts. Every change that goes against the spirit of the game makes the next one easier to accept. Do you think they're going to remove damage numbers in future MH titles? No, this feature is here to stay. People are going to get used to it, and then highlighting weak zones doesn't seem like such an extreme change. And people are going to make the exact same arguments being made here to defend it: "it will make it easier for newcomers," "providing the player with more information is a good thing," "it's optional, if you don't like it you can turn it off," etc.

Expanding the player base is not a good thing. We were all newcomers once, and somehow we managed to pick up and enjoy the game without seeing damage numbers. If someone is going to put down the game because they can't see how much damage they're doing, then this series isn't for them. Those types of players are a cancer, and the more you allow in the more future design decisions are going to be made with them in mind.

Or maybe, just maybe, some people don't just get on the adult bike and ride down the hill unscathed on their first attempt. Maybe some people want to start with training wheels while they learn.

Sorry, I want more people to play the game. I want more people to buy it so Capcom will bring more Monster Hunter to the west. Making the series more approachable to newcomers is part of that. I'm tired of looking up weapon trees and s*** online or through apps that I have to download. I've had to do it for 5 games now. We aren't limited by mobile hardware anymore so it's a perfect time to do it.

I'd much rather the information was available outside of normal hunts. For damage numbers, there could be training dummies. For weakspots, detailed descriptions in the hunter notes.

Just giving new players stuff on a silver platter will be unlikely to encourage them to self-improve. I've witnessed several "casualizations" of games and "give them a finger and they'll take the whole hand" went full effect in most cases.

I swear, Monster Hunter fans make Dark Souls fans look reasonable in comparison. Lets be real here with all this "what sets Monster Hunter apart from other games is that the combat is organic" bulls***, MHXX comes out on the Switch in about 36 hours and guess what? I already have my MHXX dex downloaded and ready to go so it can tell me exactly what monsters drop what, what elemental weaknesses they have, what the weak spots on their bodies are, etc, etc. And I'm hardly the only one that does this. Looking up s*** like that is pretty standard in the community. Tell me: What the f*** is organic about that? How is looking up a weak spot in a program/website somehow more true to the spirit of the game then damage numbers telling me that on the fly? Because it's obtuse and because figuring out obtuse gameplay is a sign of a having a huge e-peen? Give me a f***ing break. Almost all of the anti-MHW nonsense is just a bunch of crybaby elitist bulls***. Most of the improvements I've seen look like they'll make the game more fun and that's all I care about. See, I play games for fun and not so I can put other people down for being more casual then me. I'm f***ing weird like that.

The fact that real world is not augmented reality, I'd guess.
