Hippo Penny - Here comes another review of Stardew Valley!

Alright, I'll stop with the hippo puns now... or will I? Okay, focus! So, you want to know what makes this game so special? Well, let me tell you, it's not just because of those darned cows (okay, maybe a little). No, seriously, Stardew Valley has won over many hearts with its wholesome charm and addictive gameplay. But is it truly the best farming RPG out there?

Giant Bomb agrees that it's "far more than just a farming game," and I'm inclined to agree. For one, the game has an astonishing amount of content - we're talking seemingly endless hours of farming, fishing, and socializing. And yet, despite its depth, Stardew Valley never feels overwhelming. It's like the developers took everything that's great about Harvest Moon games and distilled it into a single, delightful package.

RPG Fan goes as far as saying it's "without a doubt the best game in the Harvest Moon genre in many years." Now, I'm not sure if I entirely agree with that - I mean, I've heard some of those newer Harvest Moon games are pretty sweet too. But RPG Fan does bring up an excellent point: Stardew Valley doesn't rely on gimmicks to keep players engaged. It's all about the core gameplay and the sense of community you build over time.

GameCrate chimes in with a similar sentiment, saying it's "the best and most entertaining farming RPG to come along in years." And I'm right there with them - this game has an infectious charm that's hard to resist. Even The Escapist agrees, calling it "an absolutely charming little gem about forgetting all your worries and relaxing on a farm."

Of course, not every critic is completely enamored with Stardew Valley. Game Informer notes that some quirks might keep players at arm's length, while Kill Screen admits that it's different from the usual Harvest Moon formula - but in a good way! (I'm paraphrasing, of course).

In conclusion, I think it's safe to say that Stardew Valley is an absolute delight. So if you're looking for a game that'll keep you coming back for more, look no further. Hippo Penny out!
