Love video games? Out of things to play? Have a 3ds? Well, I want to bring to your attention games that I feel don’t get much love that might interest you.
Digimon games! Don’t kill me. Digimon world ds, dawn and dusk are rpgs that involve you going through dungeons with your digimons and isn’t like pokemon at all, really. The digivolution method is pretty good and it’s really satisfying getting a strong digimon. They do have problems though. Ds has random battles and dead ends with a kiddy story while Dawn and Dusk are slow paced in the beginning and in my opinion is also too easy in the beginning, but I can recommend them to anyone whos interested. Digimon World Championship, on the other hand, is unique and awesome and definitely the best digimon game. You raise your digimon like pets to prepare them for battle. The battles are ai controlled, but it’s about raising your digimon’s stats and digivolution is a complex and detailed system. You can simply wait to have your digimon digivolve, have it fight battles, or increase it’s elemental ap to get ready for the championship, all the while having ways to increase it’s stats. If youre interested, get World Championship first.
Harvest Moon/Rune Factory: Underrated series in my opinion. You may or may not have heard of Harvest moon, but basically its a farming sim. You kinda have to play it yourself to see why it’s so good (it’s really hard to explain), and thats if you like it at all, you might not. Some aren’t as good as the others but I’ll rate the ds ones first. Tale of Two Towns: 9.5/10 This one is good to start with. I should know, it was my first Harvest Moon game and I couldn’t put it down. 1/3 of my 8th grade summer went to this game lol. Reception is mixed, but I think it’s good. Sunshine Islands: 8/10 Basically Island of happiness, the GOOD version. IOH isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be but SI is way better and is mostly the same. Ds (cute is the girl version) 6.5/10 Do not start with this one. If you get really into the series it’s pretty good, but things are super expensive and the game design just isn’t well thought out but one can still enjoy it if they get past those problems. For the 3ds: A New Beginning 8/10 SLOOOOOOOOW beginning but if you get past that you got a good game. Story of Seasons 9.9/10 So close to being a perfect Harvest Moon game but small problems hold it back. Stamina drains fast, things are expensive, and the beginning is super slow but great game.
Now lets talk about Rune Factory. This is a spinoff, the tagline is literally “A Fantasy Harvest Moon”. Farming is a big part still, but there’s combat, forging, mythical creatures and monsters and the like. 4 for the 3ds is amazing and in my opinion one of the best games ever just for the sheer amount of effort put into it but I’ll get into that later. (1-3 are for the ds) 1 is a classic. It’s simple, which is good, and it really balances the farming and combat well. The characters are ok, but there not really a focus. 2 dropped the ball a bit. It’s pretty boring and just isn’t as good as the others. 3 completely changed the formula. The mechanics are now more loose (which is good), more effort was put into the supporting cast, good story, better combat, and it still manages to balance farming and combat really well. This is where another 1/3 of my 8th grade summer went. In 4, everything that was good about the first 3 games have been upped to the max. The company could really use the help, too, as they’re struggling financially. If you’re in Europe, you have to buy it through the eshop, but it’s worth it.
