I hate it when the older games get overshadowed by their sequels like IoH and SI.
Once all of my Silkie chickens got sick and died because I couldn’t buy medicine for nearly a week. I got really mad at Neil for yelling at me when it was his fault for not having his shop open and I’ve hated him ever since.
Sunshine Islands is “my” game. My home base, my favorite. I love all the characters deeply and thoroughly. I recently got ANB, though, and it clicked. I plan on marrying Neil, but I feel like I’m cheating on Vaughn, and while I know that’s kinda silly, but Neil reminds me so much of Vaughn that I feel a little guilty.
I really wish that one day Marvelous Entertainment and the creators of Pokemon would come together and make a Harvest Moon and Pokemon crossover.
My first Harvest Moon game was DS Cute. I loved Gray in it because I identified with him. At first, I had waited for him for three weeks in the game until I noticed that he only appears after the connection to the GBA game. I was so sad because even if I find a MFoMT game I own the DSiXl that doesn’t have the GBA’s game entry.
I’m a Harvest Moon fan, but I’ve never played any of the games. I’ve watched videos on Youtube and instantly I was hooked. I just want to be able to play one of the games!
My nephew (5) loves video games. Since I have so many, I brought him my Wii and he wanted to play Magical Melody. He can’t read yet, but he loves the game. He doesn’t do much besides fishing and growing a few crops, but he tells me he wants to collect enough wood to make a barn. When he gets older I want to show him how far he got in the game even though he was only 5 and couldn’t read. It’s so adorable watching him play especially because he loves going to bed with his dog every night.
I don’t know why I don’t want ANB. I mean, I always thought the game and characters looked boring, and I would much rather get the old games over it! For instance, I’m going to get SNES on the Wii, then save up for a 64 so I can buy that one; however, I can’t shake the feeling/firm belief that Rod is my father-in-law since I’m married to Rick! Ugh!
About that last confession, I would guess Hero of Leaf Valley is underrated because most of the Harvest Moon games have been released on Nintendo platforms. I would guess that's where most of the fan base is, so less HM fans have played it. There are fewer unique (non ports/remakes/updates) Harvest Moon games on Sony platforms versus Nintendo platforms, such as HOLV being a remake of the PS2 Save the Homeland, so fans might stick mostly to Nintendo platforms for that reason.
Most likely true but…
…IT’S NOT FAIR!
-Mod V (please note that mod v is joking partially about it not being fair and is not trying to hurt or offend any of the nintendo system fans)
I wonder why Hero of Leaf Valley is very underrated in the Harvest Moon Fandom. I think Hero of Leaf Valley is much better than A New Beginning, the bachelorettes in Hero of Leaf Valley are pretty, and the graphics are good too! I hope for a remake for Hero of Leaf Valley, or the girl version of Hero of Leaf Valley someday!
Thanks to a confession I saw on this page I have decided that throughout my own pregnancy I will play Harvest Moon as well. It sounds like a wonderful idea.
I love reading the Harvest Moon fanfiction; however, I hate it when the author makes the female protagonist a complete pushover with the bachelors. It’s like, “Girl, c’mon. You moved away from home to basically restore a dying farm at a very young age, and you’re going to take these shenanigans? Don’t let him treat you like this! YOU ARE A STRONG, INDEPENDENT WOMAN!” …That’s how I feel anyways.
As precious as I think she is aesthetically, I just can’t stand talking to Maya in AP. The content and wording of her dialogue just reminds me too much of that horrible “It’s cool to be random and spazzy” phase I went through as a middle-schooler. I adored her in TOT, why did they have to make her such an airhead the second time around?!
