Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
One of those games that was just made for handheld. The gameplay revolves around non-linear farming and village life, mixed with some action RPG influence in cave dungeons, something new to Harvest Moon apparently. (this is my only game in the series) Very relaxing in pacing, and consistently satisfying. Atmosphere was pretty nice as were the characters, who were simple, but memorable and very likable. My favorite part of the game is undoubtedly the (awesome) feature to marry cute anime girls. (owned and not completed. Accurate score is 8.25)
