Our third game for 2021. Are we living in a dystopia? Will we navigate the horrors of war? Will androids and machines question the meaning of life? NO! Because we're out here to have fun and make friends with dragons. It's time for Monster Hunter Stories!
Fun fact: I have never played a Monster Hunter game. Not one. But I'm real excited for this. I've been interested in the series, and I'm even more interested in a game that seems like it'll pairs some good turn-based action with the thrill of discovery.
According to HowLongToBeat, a playthrough of this game clocks in at about 36 hours, though I've read it can take about 100 hours if you do all the post-game stuff and try to 100% the game! Leave it to a Monster Hunter title to have tons of content.
