Any simmers also harvest moon fans? Other games?

«13
I am currently addicted to Harvest Moon Animal Parade for Wii. It has some features in common with the sims 3 such as a developing community where members get married and have children. However, it also has its own unique features such as owning pets you can train, participating in festivals, and more farming options. I would love to see a talented simmer build Harmonica Town from this game in CAW. I know one simmer did Mineral Town from the gameboy version and play that town quite often.

I can't decide which is my favorite game (TS3 or Harvest Moon). I would love to see some Harvest Moon elements in a future TS3 EP (animals, mining, more story-oriented quests, festivals and holidays). I wish both games had more interactions for babies and toddlers as they are my favorite life stages.

My favorite TS3 EP so far is ambitions. Love it. I think my favorite all-time EPs would have to be the pets or vacation-themed ones. I was dissapointed WA didn't have more tourist features even though I love the puzzles. One day, I built some tourist lots in some of my destinations such as a family park in France. I think my least favorite EP was Superstar for TS1. The only things I really liked about that EP were the babysitter and the dive tank.

Basically if I could do anything to improve sims or harvest moon, it would be more children and pet themed objects, options, and interactions.

My favorite games when I was younger (adolesence) were catz 5, dogz 5, and babyz (by P.F. magic). Unfortunately, I had to stop playing them because they wouldn't run well on later versions of windows. All the newer games in this series are more mini games than virtual life so I don't play them.

Two really well-done virtual life games are My Baby First Steps and Nintendogs for the Nintendo DS. My Baby doesn't have much replay-ability once you do it once though.

    I haven't gotten a new one since the VERY first one for the wii, where you are that fat blob of a guy. I want a new one so I can finally be a girl.

    I love the gamecube one, i believe it's a wonderful life?

    I feel so out of this. What exactly is Harvest Moon? I've heard of it I think.

    It's a series of simulation games about farming, with a bit of fantasy (ESPECIALLY in the spinoff, Rune Factory, which is my second favorite game). :D

    Ah okay thanks CloverStarDropper. I see, it sounds interesting. Is it similar to farmville? Because I despise farmville. A lot. [my friend is addicted, and it makes me want to hit them repeatedly]

    I wouldnt really know, i've never played it. The games have a mini-story, sometimes. Usually envolving the Harvest Godess. But a few have no real plot and are freeform.
    Rune Factory, on the other hand, is a fantasy/farm/simulation/rpg game, with a huge plot. I actually like the game. :P I married Rosetta on it.

    Lol okay, just wondering because you said farming so it's the first thing I thought of. The fantasy one sounds the coolest!

    Farmville stinks. No character development or story. Harvest moon is a much better simulation.

    Ah Harvest moon. I cant even count how many weekends I wasted as a kid playing those games on my gamecube. For hours, like a mental patient, I'd sit in front of my TV and play. Very good memories it's now replaced with my ps3 and MAG. I used to play dogz and catz habitually when i was a kid too . I was devastated when they stopped making them... I also loved the zoo tycoon games!

    I LOVE Harvest Moon! :D I haven't played in a while due to my playing the Sims. I definitely prefer the SIms because it's waaaaaaay more interactive than the streamlined story of Harvest Moon
