This game holds a spot in my heart (and memory card) because it’s dorky, girly and very very pointless. I think I like it because it’s somewhat cute and you get to run around and act like you care about the townspeople. Plus the idea of it just sucks you in. Cute little characters in their ideal little town, mostly happy until they tell you little things when they’re sad, or how Popuri’s dad went away to find a flower to cure her mom, how people are too chicken to tell the various girls they like that they like them (unless you take them away of course), yadda yadda yadda.
awww, all alone and i married her daughter...[/align]
AND you get to control your love life. If only real life was like that.
Boy: “Here, I brought you this flower every day for the past 2 months and agreed with you on certain things and named the chicken that hatched from the egg you gave me after you.”
Girl: “OH I LOVE YOU SO! LET’S GET MARRIED!”
Guys, seriously. If all it took to get a nice girl was to give her a flower everyday and naming a chicken after her, wouldn’t life just be so much easier?
Essentially, Harvest Moon isn’t for everyone. Either you like it or you don’t. That’s just how it is (besides being very, VERY repetitive). No matter what, it’s a quirky niche farming game that continues to have newer versions come out for the current consoles. Therefore someone has to like playing it. I’m one of those girls.
ah! nekkid sheep![/align]
Thanks for taking the time to read my article!
Next up, another random game I bought at Target for $10 bucks. Superstar Dance Club Hits #1! (yes, that is the full title). Super girly, kinda trashy yet somehow addicting.[/size]
