Editor’s Note: While Monster Hunter: World has been out for a couple of weeks now, we felt it was in our best interest to take our time, beat our way through the game, and even try out some of the post-game content before reviewing this title.
If I were to look at my save file, my game would tell me I sit with a single character hovering just over 78 hours, another at 30, and a third at around 10. You’d even think I’d have learned every little thing the game had to offer from its own take on past titles. If I told you I hadn’t, you’d think I’d be a little crazy, a bit off in many ways.
Known as the fastest selling title in the history of Capcom, Monster Hunter: World is quite literally taking the world by storm. With playtime exceeding a hundred hours for some of the games most dedicated fans, the game still has quite a bit of content remaining for fans to explore. But what remains when that content has been completely consumed?
