    Default which monster hunter should i start on?

    I've heard a lot about monster hunter, and I thought I'd try and make an effort to get into it. Just wondering if I should go straight to portable 2nd g, or if I should start on the freedoms? Is it one of those games where you want to start at the beginning?

    Freedom and portable are the same thing. Portable is just the Japanese version. Also start with which ever you want. There is no story, all you do is farm for better gear.

    It sounds boring but it gets hella addictive.

    impakt is right, Freedom is the english version and Portable is the Japanese, both spawned 2 sequels but Capcom released an additional expansion for their latest japanese counterpart called: Monster Hunter Portable 2 G. There is no current plans to release this to the west.

    Considering the fact that with each MH release they add more content on it ontop of the previous. This means that if you play the first one, u'll miss out on the extra content of the latest release whereas if you play the latest one, u get all the goodies of all the previous games including the new contents.

    So my recommendations are.. get MHP2G, yes the japanese version and use the HGG patch to translate the game to english --> http://www.teamhgg.org/

    Enjoy!

    Awesome. I'll start on mhp2g then. It's good to know I won't be miising anything by skipping the originals. Thanks for the advice!
