The Monster Hunter franchise is a series of fantasy console video games that started with the game Monster Hunter for PlayStation 2. The series is developed and published by Capcom. As the title suggests, the player takes the role of a hunter in a fantasy environment and completes quests by seeking out monsters to hunt or capture. The series has branched out into PlayStation Portable games and a massively multiplayer online game. In Japan, the Monster Hunter series is immensely popular, with the port Monster Hunter Freedom (known in Japan as "Monster Hunter Portable") and its sequels, Monster Hunter Freedom 2/Monster Hunter Portable 2 and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite/Monster Hunter Portable 2G selling millions of copies, and Monster Hunter Tri becoming the highest-selling third-party Wii game in Japan.[1]

Monster Hunter places the player in the role of an up and coming hero/heroine who must accomplish various quests to achieve greatness. Armor, weapons, and other items are created from the remains of slain monsters by carving off their horns, scales and bones. Monster Hunter plays in a similar fashion to Phantasy Star Online allowing the player to team up with up to three other hunters online to take down stronger monsters.

Unlike most games, Monster Hunter does not have an elaborate storyline or even an ending. The game does offer access to cut-scenes, (accessible through a gallery mode,) but they are only available if you defeat certain quests that contain the corresponding monster. There is no plot to speak of, just a number of quests to complete before achieving the rank of Monster Hunter. Since there is no way to "beat" the game, a person could play indefinitely. The wide variety of items and equipment in the game is a significant draw for players.
