    What is harvest moon about? is it a farming simulation or dating simulation, or general simulation like the sims series?

    Both farming and dating simulation. Harvest Moon DS needed pretty badass faqs to be read, if you wanted everything... (still have stuff unfinished there, and played since the launch...)
    Could seem like for noobs, but just the farming mechanics are complicated if you want to maximize the crops you get.

    Wait, isn't this one of those new knock-off Harvest Moons?

    Natsume retained the name and started churning out bad games using the super popular old license, the REAL HMs are still coming out, but they're named Story of Seasons now.

    The last true HM was A New Beginning. Haven't played The Lost Valley yet, but the reviews for it are abysmal so I'm not sure what to expect from this one. I'll probably stick to the original titles.

    from what I played on SNES it's nothing like sims. you control the character and you have to fish,plant crop,water them etc etc. it's a lot like "stardew valley" for PC in my opinion. not just farming there's more to do.

    Stardew is directly based on this series, if you check some images from stardew and HM64, they are pretty the same graphically IIRC.
    Stradew is HM with mods, we could say, and pretty good ones i think.

    So is this a game you play online with other players, does it have a story or a lenier game play mode like a objective based game play, or is it just do whatever you want kind of game?

    Man this was what I was thinking when I saw it. Natsume need to just let the name die, they're dragging it through the mud. Story of Seasons however is fantastic, and I hope they continue to be fantastic.

    Lost Valley mechanics are like the ones from original HM series, you must "awake" the spirits and regain the power of the Godess.
    Story of Seasons have changed this, the spirits are somekind there, but they don't help you with the farm, like they used to; you don't regain godess powers, you are dedicated to the crops and the market; and regaining energy is a bit more complicated, but it's fun in his way.

    Personally, as someone who loved the HM series, I played the "new" Story of Seasons and I like it, but I find out that I seriously do not have the patience to deal with the game in full....

    Good thing I wasn't looking for someone to agree with me. That would have been a shame. /s

    Don't fund it, Natsume are butchering the series. Stick to "Story of Seasons" games.

    Oh, Harvest Moon....I remember reading about the original SNES version in Nintendo Power..it was like 1/6 of a page, couple of screens and maybe 4 paragraphs of text talking about this unusual game that took a different approach than any other game....

    I was out a video rental store a couple of months later and saw it sitting on the shelf... My brother & I were only allowed to rent 1 game each. I decided, rather hesitantly, on getting Harvest Moon thinking it resembled the RPG games I like so much and thought maybe the farming was more of a side thing....

    So I got it home and started playing it. No real RPG elements....you could go chat up the local villagers if you wanted, and you could farm...

    SEVERAL HOURS LATER....My field was completely cleared, I had crops growing in waves so I was harvesting nearly every day...it was amazingly addictive for such a "simple" game. I loved that the clock stopped at 5pm and that there was no penalty for overworking yourself other than not being able to work anymore.

    They "fixed" these 2 things in all future versions of the game, which I found kind of sad, but meh..that's what cheats are for. :D

    I haven't played any of the 3DS titles, yet, but was planning on starting on either Story of Seasons or a New Beginning sometime soon!

    From what I've seen of The Lost Valley, I don't hold much hope for this new release.
