Summary: I've always been a fan of sim games, but never used my previous portable consoles (Gameboy, GBA, etc.) for anything but Pokemon. Maybe that would've been different if I'd known about the Harvest Moon series! Recently, I have been able to play Harvest Moon 1 and 2 on an emulator. I loved them! I looked through the reviews for all Harvest Moons since, and saw that this one was a re-release due to poor feedback from its predecessor (Islands of Happiness, or something?).
