Okay, so with all this talk about Monster Hunter roaming around. I got this urge to play a lootwhore game of some kind. That means, kill thing to get loot so I can kill thing to get loot so I can....
Now that shouldn't be too hard to find right? The thing is, I don't want to deal with MMOs or Diablo and their retarded drop rates. I don't want to play the same area a million times to get a random thing with different numbers on it. I want clearcut goals, with ways to achieve them that isn't based purely on chance. "Goldfarming for Auction House isn't that appealing either".
For example, having the gear be pretty limited in the amount that's in the game total, but make them all look and feel unique. Then make me play the same area 900 times to get the materials to build it. This kind of grind is way more appealing to me, since I find drop rates frustrating and anti-fun.
So guys, do you have any good games off the top of your heads? I mean Monster Hunter is the obvious one, but I can't afford a Wii U at the moment. And playing the older games single player is far from optimal, even though that might be where I end up.... Platforms of choice are, PC, 360, PS3, PS2. And I'm not scared of emulating if that's what it comes down to.
