It would have been maybe 2 or 3 Christmas's ago, when I recieved my first MH game, Generations for the 3DS. I knew what MH was, but outside of wildly smacking at Aptonoth with a GS in FU on a friend's PSP when I was younger, I didn't know what I was getting into. In the years following after I recieved Gen that Christmas, I began to love Monster Hunter and many of the other titles spanning the franchise.
But one single thing eluded me across Gen and any other title I dabbled with since, and that was G-rank. I didn't have it as an option in Gen where I had invested so much time, and personally didn't have it in me to want to try for it in 3U (the water). By 4U I had lost a little steam, and couldn't find the motivation (and spread myself thin trying every single weapon by this point) that I stopped before I got halfway through High Rank. I detoured to FU after a 6 month break, but I didn't have a Vita at the time and did not want to experience it fully for the first time on an emulator (personal preference).
However I desperately wanted to be able to say I was G-rank in at least one of the titles. Just to have that little accomplishment tucked away for me to know I did it. So fast forward to just a few months ago. I bought a Switch and got GenU, and hoofed it from the very beginning. The difference this time is that I was solo.
Honestly, overcoming my fears of facing down the big Hypers by myself like Rathalos and Mizitsune were the most daunting. However after I flashed Rath so hard I could hear his retinas sizzling, I realized that this wasn't going to be as bad as I had thought. Then came Silver Rathalos. Another mind game though, because after flashing S. Rath so hard that his unresolved daddy issues started surfacing, I accepted that things were going to be okay.
Now I'm sitting at the door of G-3, just game planning around Lao Shan, and I'm as happy as I could be. I feel accomplished. I've learned to use different weapons and styles where appropriate, I've learned to take time to make sets that are going to give you the edge when you are so close. I'm still "gittin gud", and I'm not going to pat myself on the back until I've messed up G Rath or Tiggy, but I just finally felt like taking a deep breath and turning around to look at how far I've gone. I love this community and I'm so happy I got to be involved.
