While I might play games often, I don't play a multitude of games. I like sinking quite some time into games that are really good, instead of jumping to and fro. I often get suggestions for good games from the likes of Penny Arcade or other gaming blogs/comics. Case in point: I found out about 2015's indy hit Stardew Valley.
I've never played Harvest Moon games, despite knowing they're pretty darn good. I've been wanting to get into it, but never did. Imagine my joy when I learned about Stardew Valley, the bastard lovechild of Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing and modern-day indy game and modding mentality. I'll let some reviews do the explaining: Ars Technica and PC Gamer.
Why do I love it so much? Mostly because:
It's hard to believe that all of it was made by a single person! Sure it took him four years, but still!
