Harvest Moon for the Super Nintendo.

It's a farm simulator, which I know sounds incredibly lame, but it's not, one of the best SNES games of all time, in fact.

Basically, you start off with a sh*tty farm that you just inherited from your folks. You gotta clean it up, like cutting grass, chopping down tree stumps and breaking rocks, then you start planting seeds and growing crops (patatoes and turnips in the spring, corn and tomatoes in the summer) which you can then harvest and sell them for cash, you also buy livestock like cows and chickens, raising, taking care of then, selling the milk and eggs they produce and you can even breed them sell them. You lose stamina when you work to hard and you eat to gain more. The game also has an internal clock so it's real time, goes through a day and night circle and through the seasons. Both timed and random events happen during the game, like monthly festivals and natural disasters like hurricans.

Theres a town where you buy the seeds, livestock and tools you need, as well as food for stamina. And another cool thing is that you can even woo the local womenfolk, and when you're successful you can propose to them, marry them, extend your house and make it bigger and have a kid or two to keep the family business going.

It's like a sim/rpg overall. And it's one of the most addictive games I've played in a long time.

Resistance 2.

Single player is average, but multi player is a lot of fun.

That's what I thought at first but once you start working on your farm, the challenge of getting your business going (and you always need the money) and keeping it stable makes it very addictive, theres a lot more depth to it then you would think and it's really quite fun.

I'm probably gonna get the GBA game, Friends of Mineral Town, since I hear it's even better (plus theres no time limit for success).

I really like sim games. Mainly city builders.

Speaking of which. I've also been playing ActRaiser, which is a very unique game to say the least. It combines elements of action platforming, strategy, rpg and city building. You basically play as god, and you help people build cities, use your god magic to help them through moments of crisis, destroy rocks and burn bushes with lighting, put out fires with rain and other stuff. You help them fight monsters in various ways. When things get specially hairy you come to earth yourself to give these monsters some holy ass kicking.

Awesome game.
