    Out of the Harvest Moon series, the only ones I'll really recommend are: Harvest Moon 64, Harvest Moon: (More) Friends of Mineral Town, and Harvest Moon: Magical Melody to a certain degree. The rest are pretty sub par.

    I do, however, recommend playing both Rune Factory games without WiFi. WiFi really makes the two games too easy, RF1 even more easy with mineral mining.

    Out of the two though, I suggest you play at least one from BOTH series. They're equally worthwhile, but RF seems to deviate a bit from the farming elements, and it often does the "Harvest Moon" portion little justice in terms of emphasizing the farming portion of the game. Most people seem to run off and go mining in the dungeons in RF, but in Harvest Moon, mining is a tad more difficult as the games rely on a stricter stamina system that hinders how long you'd be able to stay in a dungeon.

    Rune Factory. The action-RPG gameplay makes it less repetitive/boring.

    Quite true. However, the action part is also pretty repetitive/boring. Not to mention dev's obvious lack of experience on the subject, what with the half-assed hit detection an'all...

    Should I play Rune Factory 2 without having played the first one?

    It really doesn't matter, as there are few references to RF1 as far as I've gotten.

    I mean, RF1 had a pretty brittle excuse for a storyline anyways, so it doesn't really matter.

    No, RF2 is a lot better than RF1. And the only thing that is similar is one character who was a kid in the first game, is now a marriage candidate. Everything else is different and new.

    On DS its Rune Factory all the way, HM on DS is just a mess. Every time they fix something from a previous game they always have something else that is ruining on the current game.

    Really hoping that the new HM (something to do with Windmills) is gonna be one that doesn't seem like a rush job and riddled with bugs.

    Rune Factory just feels better.
