I like to look at Stardew Valley as one of those games that really is special. It's as simple as that. The passion of one developer led to an unparalled farm-sim success.

Stardew Valley grabs anyone, whether you're a seasoned RPG fan (like you and I) or a casual gamer who occasionally hops on simpler games, like Animal Crossing. The beautiful music, simple gameplay, and colorful cast of town residents provides a beautiful escape.

The multiplayer is also very fun, especially if you're looking for a game to play with your significant other. I'll never forget the harrowing experience of mining with my ex-girlfriend. Stardew breathes good memories and happy times.
