I was worried about posting Did You Know Gaming's piece on Harvest Moon on this fine spring day, knowing you'd all be busy planting crops and courting. I decided to take a chance, because that's what virtual farming is all about (or not).

Fun fact: I have purchased every Harvest Moon game (including the Rune Factory series) that has been released in the U.S. since the first game was released back in 1997.

Second fun fact: I have never played any Harvest Moon game for more than ten hours in total, most less than five.

I love the idea of the Harvest Moon series. I love the dating and marriage aspects. I love planting crops and building up a farm. I love the art direction. I love everything about the games, except playing them for any extended period of time. Maybe I don't have the patience, or I am just easily distracted. All I know is one day my children are going to get their hands on one hell of a collection. Maybe they'll actually play them.
