Are the harvest moon games basically dating sims?

If you want a true dating sim, then I suggest you try one of the few PC games:

School Days HQ
Shiny Days
Cross Days

All three all animated with limited animation, and Cross Days has the most fluid animation and overall better "scenes" than School Days and Shiny Days.

School Days HQ: One of the best animated visual novels ever.
Shiny Days: Mediocre at best but Setsuna is adorable <3

^Those three are NOT dating sims nor are they TRUE dating sims.

Dating sims are games like Tokimemo where you try to woo a girl into dating your MC. Visual novel aka eroge is more focused on story and character developement OR just a game with certain "scenes" that you can have "fun" with.

Also, HM is mostly about farming. The whole marriage thing is just a side thing included in the game since HM is all about raising a farm and family. Also, there are no dating or something like it in HM games. You just gift the girls so that you can get them to "marry" you. zavlinz said it right, their not dating sims, their farming sims.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

Visual novels and dating sims don't play anything alike...

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

I remember playing adult dating games like "true love '95" back in high school. Very adult but very good games.
