      A dystopia created farm sim actually sounds really awesome. I mean it would be basically the ending of Idiocracy just turned into a game. Also if they really wanted to have you travel around everywhere but still keep your farm why not just make teleporters or maybe have a spaceship that is your farm? I really wasn't prepared for the shrink ray of all things to deus ex machina our way out of that problem.

    I prefer Rune Factory, where you get all the farming of Harvest Moon, but then can take your in-game significant other into a monster filled dungeon, which you may or may not have grown on your farm, slay a demon and then tame a lesser dragon with some scrambled eggs you had in your pocket and make it do your farm work for you.

    You know.....a futuristic farm sim, where everyone has forgotten how to farm, or where crops come from, where your farm LITERALLY gets up and slowly walks from town to town, and you have to spend the seasons between cities growing food to meet demand and collecting soil from where you pass by to expand your plot of land.....sounds like it might be fun.

    Wouldn't it have been a much more fun time if you started out on a raft with some small plots, but you'd find an island and traded your crops for more raft parts, eventually building yourself out to an ark of farming with different decks for different farming needs? You move from island to island, finding different civilisations with different farming needs, etc. Would prefer that over rebuilding...

    Y'know how some people say stuff like "Zelda 2 is the WORST Zelda game, but that doesn't mean it's a BAD game." Well likewise, One World is the BEST "Harvest Moon" game, but... Like it's crazy to say after playing this one, but they clearly ARE learning...just at a very very slow pace. One World is dang near a masterpiece compared to Light of Hope and The Lost Valley.

    Well if you think this one sucks... it’s the best one in the series yet 👏 so thank your lucky stars for not playing those. I mean I played the first since I got it for 5€ and had nothing else to do so it’s better than nothing at least, just keep the bar buried underground and you won’t be disappointed with it going in expecting garbage since well... it runs and that’s at least something right? It’s not completely broken, just pretty much empty. Unless you like crop mutations that are extremely fiddly to make happen even with a guide.

    I've only played two Harvest Moon games. The original on SNES and one on Gamecube with musical notes or something. I really liked the one on SNES but didn't care for the latter. I thought HM just died after that and was reincarnated as Stardew Valley.

    To be completely fair, the developers of the newest Story of Seasons game have already come out and apologized for how bad it is. So both games are equally bad this time around.

    I find it so odd how I enjoy Stardew Valley so much but never liked any of the Harvest Moon games. I remember playing the one for Gamecube years ago and really wanting to enjoy it, but I felt like the game was pushing me to go faster than I wanted. It forced me to marry at the end of 1 year and immediately have a child. So my tiny farm, barely able to afford to buy more seeds, now had fo feed and sustain a family of 3.

    Honestly, that kind of sounds like Dragon Quest Builders, which actually did that sort of concept pretty well. You start off as a generic Dragon Quest protagonist and have to bring together all the humans and fight the demon king, along the way re-teaching the humans about basic concepts of cooking, mining, and building. I think DQB works while this doesn't because of a few things: 1) There's only four different islands you go to 2) You have a central base of operations that you return to after each island 3) Once you teach the humans how to cook food on island 1, you don't have to do the same thing on island 2

  91. Phrown

    So my idea on how to combine a farming sim with exploration start's with Yahtzee's idea about a world where everyone forgot about farming. It's in the future where all the work is done by machines so everyone spends their time doing what they want. Then the machines revolt against their masters and kick humans off the planet. So now the humans have to find a new planet to colonize and rebuild civilization. After finding one, they have to relearn farming all over again. You start with a small base and everyday you go out to the wilderness to collect samples. Gradually you build up better food, stronger people and domesticate wildlife so you can venture further and further.

    I look forward to you making a comparison review for Story of Seasons seeing it's out tomorrow. I would presume it HAS to be better than the drivel "Harvest Moon" (as it calls itself) pumps out nowadays. And already has patches planned, ongoing event support, and an expansion pass to purchase.
