Story of Seasons
Hear me out.
The selected Harvest Moon games are getting remade for fan to have an updated version sure that is easier to churn out than a new game. But why remake it instead of just port the old games to the switch? What if it is to remove the Natsume name of "Harvest Moon" from the titles among the fan base. Back to Nature was first, and now Its A Wonderful Life. Stardew Valley got the Farm Life Sim stuff rolling again, and Story of Seasons is going on stronger now.
Yet their history of the more popular titles goes by the name Harvest Moon, and I don't need to be the one to point out how that name has been going down hill. These days a game with the name Harvest Moon tells at least me, and likely most players, to avoid it. Saving their classics of what they made might be the idea, but they are saving them from the name Harvest Moon.
Back to Nature was released in 1999. A 7 year old then would be pushing 30. Those that are younger may only know Harvest Moon games as trash by the newer releases. They can't just re-release an old Harvest Moon game, they have to change the name for more than just legal reasons.
So there's currently a sale on the game and I'm still debating whether it's worth it or not.. I watched some reviews and read reddit posts and tbh a lot of the opinions seem black or white, either people feel robbed and say it's the worst game over or they say they loved the game! Is anyone even still playing that game? Is it worth the money? Is Story of Seasons friends of mineral town maybe a better choice? In my opinion at this point, I this PoOT has flaws for sure, like the makers or maybe a lack of events. But the graphics are well made and the animals look super cute! Romance is a big big part for me and a lot of people said that that was improved a while ago, I'm really indecisive and unsure.. Can anyone say their honest opinion? Do you think I should buy it?
