  2. Monster Hunter: World
  3. If MHW is the Dark Souls of MH games, is Iceborne the Bloodborne of MH World?

Many comparisons have been made between these 2 series and I am wondering.

Most people making those comparisons are complete idiots.

The Souls games are supposed to be about difficulty.

The only thing even remotely passing as difficult in World would be Extreme Behemoth and Ancient Leshen. Maybe AT Nergigante as well, but that is more because it has some broken mechanics, more than anything else.

Pretty sure there were older MH games that were a lot more difficult than World even comes close to.

Monster Hunter combat is so tight it makes Dark Souls combat seem floaty in comparison.

That statement is factually untrue.

I could spend several minutes telling you why but i'm curious on these so called comparisons.

What comparisons have you've seen that imply that monster hunter world is the darksouls of monster hunter games? Like what does that statement even mean?

No. Iceborne is an expansion of the original game. Not a new title or spin off. You're essentially calling the Artorias of the abyss DLC bloodborne.

Outside of stamina management (which MH did WAAAAAAAY before the Souls games btw), the 2 series are absolutely nothing alike. I remember when this game first came out people kept comparing it to Souls and I was flabbergasted as to why.

Mhw is easy AF what are you smoking.
This MH is the easiest in the series
Iceborne isn't hard just monsters don't die in 2 hits.

Also horrible games to compare with each other

If by "Dark Souls of Monster Hunter" you mean "way overhyped", then sure.
If by "Bloodborne of Monster Hunter" you mean "has borne in the title", then sure.
All other comparisons are terrible, though.

Haven't you heard? It was the first ever game to be crazy difficult. FromSoft practically invented difficulty.
