2. “Harvest Moon: A New Beginning” for the 3DS
Harvest Moon games have been around since the SNES. Although the first ones only allowed players to be a male character, the newer ones allow the players to choose between being a male or female. In this game, you are a farmer of a nearly empty town. It is your job to turn the town around and bring in more people. You do this by growing crops and raising animals. A New Beginning gives you full control over arranging the town and your ranch any way that you like. A staple of Harvest Moon games is to go on dates with the locals and eventually find the person you want to settle down with. Harvest Moon even allows you to start a family by allowing the player to have kids.
