Every time a new game is released, the players experience a new challenge. This is why the Souls games are always discussed in the gaming press. Their newest game is being released, and is titled Monster Hunter: World. The reviews are already excellent, and the specific details of the new game are currently being discussed. The reviews have explained one of the best aspects of the game is the decent attempt made to attract new players to the Monster Hunter series.
The references have not all been accurate because not only do the Souls and Monster Hunter series play completely differently, the Monster Hunter games were released long before the Souls games came along. The game is being called a combination of Dark Souls and Jurassic Park, and this reference indicates the game is trying to reach the people who have never played the Monster Hunter series.

The problem is, the reviews could have chosen other games for reference without alienating the consumer. Constantly bringing up the Dark Souls series is not accomplishing anything. These references simply make the reviewers appear ignorant regarding the multitude of games that would make an excellent comparison.
Numerous comparisons have already been made between Monster Hunter: World and the Souls series. This does not provide an accurate description of the new game, or spotlight any of its excellent attributes. The niche for this type of game definitely includes fans for the Souls games, but the Monster Hunter series is more than good enough to be promoted on its own merits.
In terms of sales, the Monster Hunter series is extremely popular, and a vital part of the mainstream games. The popularity may exceed the Souls games.
