MHGen was my entry into the franchise. My friend said "hey, let's try out this game together, it's cooperative." I thought it sounded cool! Set out on hunts with my friends to slay massive monsters!
Well, I hated it. I honestly didn't enjoy my time at all, but even so put 15 hours into a mixture of lance and longsword with my two roommates who seemed to be enjoying the game a lot more than me. I ended up dropping the game because I was done with the janky controls and the terrible way they taught you how to play:
Here's a wall of text about how to use your weapon. Now go kill this monster that doesn't sit still!
Anyway, I forgot about it for a bit until I saw the MHXX demo was on the Japanese eShop. I had heard that people could play across platform, and the prospect of playing and slaying with my friends still sounded cool as heck. So, I downloaded the demo and despite not being able to play with them yet I had a surprising amount of fun! I probably put 3 or so hours into the demo alone, so I was hoping for a release in the west.
Well, the day came. I bought the game on release day because I thought we'd be able to play together again. Turned out MHGU and MHGen were different games! Surprised, but I played the game solo anyway because why not? I just dropped some money on it, may as well get something for it.
I'm so glad I did. I ended up taking up the longsword again and went super hard into it. Slowly but surely, I climbed my way through the hub quests until my roommates also got Switches and bought the game. We played together and had a blast, eventually making it to G all access.
I had no clue what was in store after that. What they don't tell you is that the bulk of the game happens after your rank is unlocked, and boy have I been surprised. When I was first unlocked, I was about HR 90 or so.
About 500 hours later, I'm HR 236. You know what I just did? I just made what I think is the coolest set for LS in existence, and I'm super proud of it. Stoked, actually.

Anyway, sorry for the wall of text. I'm just excited and feel like I've overcome a massive obstacle that I set for myself a long time ago and figured this would be an okay place to share it.
I hope you're all having a lovely day!
