Harvest Moon or Rune Factory?

I'm a huge fan of the Harvest Moon games, as well as various RPGs. When Rune Factory came out, I was thrilled. Harvest Moon - the RPG!? It seemed too good to be true. But now, with both a new Harvest Moon game and Rune Factory 3 on the horizon, I find myself in a dilemma - which do I prefer? Good old farming, or plowing one minute and battling monsters the next? Personally, I love Rune Factory, but my favorite's probably always going to be the originals. What about you guys?

I tried Rune Factory once but just couldn't enjoy it like I enjoy Harvest Moon. My favourite Harvest Moon is probably The Tale Of Two Towns, which is one of the latest. It has alot more to offer than the previous ones, which is saying alot I think. It really is great and if you haven't played it yet, I strongly recommend it!

Personally I like the harvest moon games, since this is the only game that has a girl version. I'm actually anticipating that they release the new ds game harvest moon: twin villages in english in the very near future.

For me I like the old farming style . Just now I'm playing the harvest moon: hero of leaf valley. The revision of harvest moon:save the homeland from PS2. Harvest Moon games are very addictive. Everytime I woke up in the morning,I, first start playing my PSP before I eat my breakfast. I just finished also other harvest moon games like Innocent life and Harvest Moon boy and girl. I did also try Rune Factory 1 and 2. But i prefer the old style in Harvest Moon. The simple Simulation Game. I love this game because i really love plants.

well i love both. i was waiting for the mmo one years ago but have no new information about it. there is really something about that game that i find addicting. Some people associate it with farmville but they are wrong about this one.

Tried Harvest Moon DS Island of Happiness and Harvest Moon Sunshine Island. Both seems similar. I remember I had to keep buy and make bridges in HM DS IoH -.-"" lol I love Harvest Moon Sunshine Island more as it has wild animal features, whereby we can feed these animals and they bring items for you in return. There is this mushroom island with a pet pig too ^^ I havent try Rune Factory, kind of dislike, dunno, maybe will try it in future ;D

I haven't played Rune Factory yet but I was so addicted to Rune Factory a few years back. I'm occupied with other things right now but if ever I do play again then I'll givr Rune Factory a try.
