The list author says: "I've been a Nintendo nerd since childhood and continue to enjoy their systems and games to this day. ^^ I wanted make a list of my favorite games as well as general recommendations. Everyone's style differs, so much of what I list may not be to your taste, but you ought to find something worth trying!"
"Harvest Moon is a personal favorite of mine and obviously targets a niche group of players.
If you've never played Harvest Moon or are just getting into it, this would be a wonderful game to try. There is another game previous to this called Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility, but this game (Animal Parade) is virtually the same, only with a lot more content. So I suggest this title!"
