Is there anyone who still plays Story of Seasons (2014) on the 3ds? I don't want to believe that I'm the only one. I also play Rune Factory 4, Pokemon X, Sun and Moon, and Tomodachi Life....

The  Story of Seasons   video game  series was originally produced by  Victor Interactive Software  (acquired by  Marvelous Entertainment  in 2002), with  Natsume  handling the  English  translation and distribution in  North America . The series debuted in  Japan  on August 9, 1996 with  Bokujō Monogatari  ( 牧場物語- lit. "The Farm Story" ), which later was released in the North American and  PAL  regions as  Harvest Moon . [1]   Story of Seasons  is a series of  farm   simulation / role-playing video games  where the main objective is to maintain a farm over a period of time, tending the crops and livestock throughout the seasons, while befriending the nearby townsfolk and getting married in some games. [2]   Story of Seasons  titles have been released on numerous different  video game consoles  and  handheld game consoles . Several titles have been re-released on multiple platforms as special editions which include an updated gameplay. [3]  Fourteen  spin-off  titles have been released, featuring related elements. One of these titles,  Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon , was released to mark the 10th anniversary of the  Story of Seasons  series. [4]  One reason the  Story of Seasons  series has remained popular is because of the unchanged core system of the games. According to Yasuhiro Wada,  Story of Seasons '  lead designer, it has been the development team's response to the audience's requests which has allowed the series to maintain its popularity. [5]

Due to Natsume keeping the rights to the  Harvest Moon  name when Marvelous decided to have their own American division,  Xseed Games , take over North American distribution, the newer titles in the series had to be renamed to  Story of Seasons [6]  while Natsume took the opportunity to start their own  Harvest Moon  series of similar games starting with  Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley . This has reportedly caused some degree of confusion among players and fans of the series. [7]
