I loved harvest moon 3. It was my first HM game. I played it when I was about 9 years old without the use of guides or walkthrough's and i think I did a pretty good job figuring everything out. I still have my game and it still works. I will probably play it again in the future when I have more free time.
Right now I am busy playing TToTT every once in awhile, but there is NO HM games that beat HM 3. It was by far the best. I remember I could get through a whole season in about 5 hours of playing. Because I would sit there and play non stop when I was little Lol.
I just hope my cartridge never goes bad because I hear that they can.
Anyone who is curious about playing this game really should try it and buy it. I wish they would re make this game for a different console with better graphics, but with the same farm layout and town. Because the Game boy graphics bore me now... Lol.
