A person can find video games in almost every type of genre. From huge battle royale-style games to role-playing games, adventure games, and even games that make you live your life. This type of game is called “farming-sims,” and it is one of the most popular.
It doesn’t matter if the game is all about running a farm or has a little more to it. They can be a lot of fun! So many of them it can be hard to choose the best one. Here are the best farming games, ranked from worst to best. Keep reading to see which ones are the best!
1. Rune Factory 4 Special
Running a farm isn’t the most important thing to do in Rune Factory 4 Special, but it’s still an important part of the game. There is a lot you can do in this beautiful fantasy world, even though you have a lot of land to tend to and animals to raise.
It’s not just fun farming that you can do. You can also have relationships and events in your town, go into fun dungeon-crawling action RPG scenarios to become strong, cook, and do quests. Plus, when you do something in Rune Factory 4 Special, you get better at that thing and become more efficient at it. The Rune Factory 4 Special is a farming life-sim game that you can play for hours and hours.
2. Grow: Song Of The Evertree
Grow: Song of the Evertree is one of the newest games on this list. It came out in December 2021. GROW: SONG OF THE EVERTREE, like its predecessor Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles, is all about going where your heart desires and taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of a lush and lively fantasy world.
In this game, you play as one of the last Alchemists from the game called Everheart. When you play as a fully customizable character, you can do a lot of farming and help restore the Evertree. To make the land where you farm fertile again, you need to plant a biome seed that comes from a specific place. For extra fun, you can also build new villages in the Evertree region. This is to try and get more people living there.
3. Farmer’s Dynasty
After living in the city for a long time, the main character comes back to their old family farm. This is a farming-sim/RPG hybrid. The storyline isn’t very good, and you’ll spend a lot of time building the farm before you get to the fun part, but the game still has a lot to offer.
Building your farm and growing crops aren’t the only things you can do in the game. You can also do quests, build up your relationships with other people, and even settle down and start a family if you want.
4. Garden Paws
Garden Paws is based on a common farming storyline in which you inherit your grandparent’s old farm. The story of this game is a little different, though. You play as a cute animal character, and everyone else in town is also a cute animal.
There are a lot of other features that make the game feel even more real, like being able to farm, craft, and find new places. You have to make your own house and make sure that new buildings are built in your town. You can also run your own shop. With this game you can play with your friends and have a lot of fun together.
Staxel is a PC game that looks like it borrows a lot from Minecraft because of its voxel style, but it’s a good game in its own right that focuses more on farming and is more like a typical farming-sim game.
In Staxel, you can build and run a farm, raise animals, grow crops, fish, and more. In addition, you can become friends with the local villagers and help them out by doing different tasks.
6. Slime Rancher
In Slime Rancher, you play Beatrix LaBeau, a rancher who just moved to this planet to start a new life on the ranch. The game is set on a faraway planet.
In the game called Slime Rancher, players catch and care for different types of slimes called Plorts. At the same time, they grow crops and expand their ranch, and they make money selling Plorts, which are slime poop. There are also hidden mysteries to be found and the threat of Tarr Slimes to keep in mind.
7. Farming Simulator
When you play Farming Simulator games, you play as someone who works on a farm. These games have been coming out almost every year since Farming Simulator 2008. They are more realistic than other farming-sim games.
This is how these games work: Players run their own farms. They grow crops, raise animals, and then sell the goods they get from their farms to make money. This series is great for people who want to have a real farming experience.
8. Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles
Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is an open-world adventure game, but it also has a lot of fun farming-sim elements. Players can build different farms in different biomes, learn different crafting skills, fish, and more in this game.
If you play the game, you can do so at your own pace. It has a lot to offer. In addition to farming, you can explore the world and look for sprites, make friends with other characters, and complete quests.
9. Stardew Valley
The game Stardew Valley came out a long time ago, but many people still want to play a good farming game. With each new update, it will get better and better. It will likely be a favourite for many years to come. Getting a farm from your grandfather and moving to Pelican Town are the main parts of Stardew Valley. You’ll spend your seasons working on your family farm, making friends (and maybe even getting married) with the people in your town, and making your town look better with the help of magical little creatures.
Stardew is a game that lets you live and run a town like the Harvest Moon games, but there’s also a strong community of farmers who are always trying to improve their operations. You won’t have to look for ideas if you want to build the most profitable or beautiful farm, and there are a lot of Stardew Valley mods so you can make the game completely different.
Kynseed is the first game made by a group of people who used to work on the Fable games. As of 2018, it has been in Early Access on Steam. There have been a lot of changes made during this time. Some of the other games on this list don’t have the same kind of dense pixel art and big worlds to explore. This one is different.
Although Kynseed is still about planting crops, making friends, and exploring the world, the intentionally groan-worthy humour that comes from the Fable series makes it very different from games like Stardew Valley or My Time at Portia.
