So give Harvest Moon a shot. It's a great role-playing experience and great sim rolled into one, and there's a reason why it kicked off a full franchise that's still releasing new installments on nearly every platform today – farming is fun.

It's about as niche as it's possible to get, of course, but the Harvest Moon series has always been very much in tune with the audience Nintendo are chasing with the Wii so perhaps this isn't as leftfield as it once seemed. When Animal Crossing and My Sims get primetime TV adverts, the prospect of running your own space farm is arguably a more mainstream proposition that whatever grungy FPS the 'hardcore' gamers are fapping over this week.

Summing it up, you go through the seasons planting the right stuff, going to festivals, getting married and hoping you get a cool ending. To some this will sound pointless but it’s a game that is greater than the sum of its parts and very addictive once you get started. This is a shining example of the RPG genre and at the time of release it was unique and original. With all the secrets in this game there is lots of scope for replayability so you will get your value for money here.
