Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town is a Gameboy Advanced game.
It's about a boy (you) who inherits a farm from an old man. The farm is at a village where more farms exist.
You must do everything in your power to make your farm grow, and the village is just like a real village, with events, horse races etcetera.
You must till, clear your land, feed your animals, harvest crops, water them.
You can also socialize with everybody in the village and eventually marry a girl if you like.
Also you have the ability to upgrade your house if you have enough money, or buy a new one alongside it.
Cooking recipes must be discovered. Food must be bought for your animals.
It's the real thing in terms of farming.
You are not alone in this life, you have a dog who accompanies you.
This game was top notch imo, in terms of the 'farming' genre, nothing could beat it imo.
