BRB Playing Harvest Moon: Back to Nature PSone on my PSP.
#@$! Farmville. This is as old-school as it gets… then again, if we’re talking real old-school, there’s always ACTUAL real life farming that literally puts food on everyone’s tables. But I guess that’s besides the point.
But yeah the PSone Harvest Moon is one really addicting game. REALLY addicting. Around 9-10 years ago, we didn’t really pay any heed on the game when we first saw it sitting on the game store shelf, and would not have tried it out until my bro got it as a gift. If I remember correctly, I think my bro was getting around three gifts, and he gets to pick which game he wants (for his Birthday? Christmas? I couldn’t recall). I forgot the other two, but the last pick was Harvest Moon, and he just picked it up out of curiosity.
So when my bro started playing Harvest Moon, I don’t think he bothered with the other games that much. I saw him playing the game and… we were both playing it like crazy from that point on, during that whole summer.
Flash forward to the present, we got the game again via PSN for $5.99, but it’s crazy that the original game, just like a lot of PSone classics (that isn’t “GREATEST HITS”), are now being bid and sold on for more than $100+ now. Their value would only steadily increase over time, so those who have PSone games and had kept them in mint condition, with the jewel cases and manual intact with little to no wear, you’re going to make some good money when you decide to sell them. Back to the game, I’ve been playing Harvest Moon: Back to Nature for the past few days now, and it’s just as crazy addicting as it was when I played it during high school nearly a decade ago :P
