Stardew Valley – Five years and still addictive!
Now and then you find a game that you enjoy enough to put countless hours in to. I admitted, had a lot of these. I am a gamer after all and the only thing I do more then game is read. So naturally I prefer games with replay value and I can relax with. Stardew Valley is one of those.
Now, if you are not familiar with this game, it is a 2D game that came out in 2016. It is like games such as Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, Rune Factory, and so on. This casual fun genre of slice of life games is always adding more to the list. You farm, you build, you make friends, and you expand your home and improve the general area you have moved in to. Plus some amusing combat that reminds me of several old NES games I’ve played.
Sure. This sounds fun. But what has made it so impress that five years later people still play it religiously?
Because they have not stopped adding to it!
Since it’s release they had added multiplayer, different house styles that affect how you play, and even recently added additional aspects of relationships you can have with NPCs. The developers never seem to stop adding to this ever-growing game.
Another plus is that if you get sick of the game, it has picked up a rather large modding community! The possibilities from both the developers and the community on this brilliant game are endless. It is a must play for anyone.
