I've just stumbled upon a comment by someone on one site, saying that the game gets boring after a while because "after a while you cant do anything but wait so you throw your animals in the house with a full food tray and just skip days until its time to slaughter the males and hope that at least one turns out to be female(a few ones you cant chose what gender it will have)." That just sounds so cruel!!! Do you really have to kill them? And it's so evil to let animals be in a house for such a long time, such games should not even exist! Harvest Moon at least lets the animals out during the day automatically, right? ..... waaaah!
