Harvest Moon (牧場物語) for the Super Nintendo was the launch of the Harvest Moon series. During its time of release the graphics, music, and game as a whole were rather impressive for it's time. Any Harvest Moon fan should know the series roots, and this game is worth the play.

The protagonist moves to an old, dilapidated farm to rebuild it. His parents hate to let him go, but he made the choice to move to the country and be a farmer. As the player, you become free to grow crops, raise animals, woo the ladies, explore and whatever else that the game offers. There's only two and a half years filled with short days to re-establish the farm and marry one of the five eligible bachelorettes. The aim is to manage all of these things by working off a schedule and become a successful farmer.
