What did you enjoy the most? Is there anything that sticks out for you? I’m leaning towards the Monster Hunter games, both actually. I didn’t get into any previous games but these look to be much different in an appealing way.  Characters can roam the lands freely and with a much more detailed look. It seems there is a bigger world to explore than strictly hunting, which is still a large part of it. The story may be more in-depth and explored. I’ve got some friends that will be more than joyful in this and I’m happy for all to enjoy the games announced today.

Thanks, Nintendo!
