Unsure if this belongs here or what

But I had a quick question

I wanted to buy a Harvest Moon game, but I'm not sure which because there are literally so many out there?? And also I know like nothing about the game

What are some you recommend
also what are some you don't recommend........

The newest 2 are Harvest Moon; A New Beginning and Story of Seasons, both for the 3DS. They're both pretty good. I feel like I'm a pretty casual player when it comes to Harvest Moon and I've done pretty well in both games. I haven't played much of the older stuff though.

I've only played two in the series: A Wonderful Life for the Gamecube and Friends of Mineral Town for the GBA.

A Wonderful Life was underwhelming, but I loved Friends of Mineral Town. It's kind of old now, but I'd still recommend it. You inherit a somewhat neglected farm at the beginning of the game, and one of the focuses of the game is to turn it into a successful farm. You plant different crops in different seasons, and you can also buy sheep, cows, and chickens. Another focus of the game is to get married.

There are a lot of other things you can do as well. You can try to befriend everyone in the town, you can go fishing, there are two mines in the game that each have 255 floors for you to mine. You can go fishing. You can make improvements to your house and other buildings on the farm. There are holidays that will have their own unique event attached to them.... there's really a lot you can do!

I'm pretty sure the game is on the Wii U Virtual Console, so it's available to play that way if you don't have a GBA.

Probably a game from the Zelda series

A New Beginning is really solid.

I feel as though Story of Seasons takes what was great about ANB and improves upon it, as well as fixing some players' complaints about it. It's probably my number one or two pick in the series. (M)FoMT is also a good one, and Sunshine Islands. I also liked Tree of Tranquility, though Animal Parade did add more stuff.

I enjoyed ANB more tbh. I lost interest in SOS pretty quickly.

Hm, I was able to stay focused on Story of Seasons and get much further into it than I had with ANB. I think it was just the fact that you have to build everything in the town that made me lose motivation, I guess I felt too overwhelmed/rushed? If not for that I feel like I would have enjoyed it much more, because I liked the characters and plot (what I saw of them at least). What was it about SoS that had that effect on you?

I just realized that this thread is a few months old.. but I'm gonna post this anyways LOL

I started playing Harvest Moon about 10 years ago I believe. I own Another Wonderful Life, Magical Melody, HM: DS, Tree of Tranquility, Tale of Two Towns and Story of Seasons (I feel like I'm forgetting one but oh well lol). I'm not sure if this is just cause they're really nostalgic for me, but Another Wonderful Life, Magical Melody and Tree of Tranquility are probably my favourites. I'd say my least favourite is Tale of Two Towns. I'm not sure why, I just never really got into it. HM: DS is also really fun as well, but I find it to be more challenging than the others. This is because there are tons of marriage requirements (and marriage is usually what I do first in every game). I just got Story of Seasons and it's really fun so far! Also, I never owned this one but I've heard great things about Animal Parade. I believe most people say that it's the best HM game.

Out of my favourites, I feel that Another Wonderful Life definitely has a more serious tone. Just based on the colour scheme alone, it's a lot darker than the other games. Magical Melody is  more cartoony and colourful, and Tree of Tranquility is kind of a mix between the two. They're all great games though!
