Why are there so many Harvest Moon games for DS?

I used to be a huge HM fan, but I'm not really familiar with anything past Magical Melody. I have ToT but I never ended up getting a chance to really get into it, but I may soon if it's one of the better ones. I've also played HM DS, and it wasn't the greatest.

I decided I want to play one, and as far as I can tell A New Beginning seems to be the popular one now. There seems to be a crazy amount of HM games for the DS though, are any of them good? I remember HM DS being really glitchy, and I can only imagine how glitchy all the other ones probably are because so many of them came out in a short amount of time. The large amount of them seems so unnecessary.

A New Beginning is great, but that's one's 3DS. For DS, I had a lot of fun with Sunshine Island.

ANB is the best one in recent memory. Sunshine Islands was good, but not as good as this one. You might want to check out Rune Factory (IV) which is great as well.

I've only liked ANB, DS, island of happiness, and Animal Parade. Magical Melody is still my favorite though.

If I decide to play Rune Factory, would it be best to try and find 1, 2 and 3 first?

^ RF is a lot like Etrian Odyssey where you could have a hard time going backwards if you don't really like the series. 3 is, IMO, the best one yet, though it could be worth waiting until 4 comes out, as 3 is pretty expensive. You'd still probably be able to play 3 without much trouble after playing 4 anyhow.
