Five Common Things About Harvest Moon Series "Farming Game"

Good afternoon people!
What are you doing in the morning?
Exercise and then you play a game like me?
Hahaha. Well, every morning I always see my garden. Remind me of something. Yeah, Nature.
Nothing wrong with nature. Fresh air, cool breeze, and anything about birds chirping. How if we dreamed about have a ranch like this game?

Who plays this game? I like this game called "Harvest Moon" so much. From the first version until now. Harvest Moon (Bokujou Monogatari) was first published in Japan in 1996. Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town is the first Harvest Moon game to be released specifically for the Gameboy Advance system (GBA).

Harvest Moon is a farming simulation game with an underlining storyline that adds depth to break up the daily monotony of watering crops. In the games, players have the option of getting married, raising livestock and poultry animals, catching fish, and attending festivals to impress the local villagers. If in your first game "Mineral Town" you'll find Ann, Mary, Karen, Popuri, and Elli along with your "rivals" like Kai, Cliff, Doctor, Rick, and Gray. In another series, they're many candidates for your journey to marry.
