You are gifted a letter by your grandfather and told only to open it when the pressure of modern life has become too much to bear. After the stress of your office job at Joja Corporation reaches its peak, you open the letter to find that you have inherited your grandfather's old farm in Pelican Town, located in the verdant Stardew Valley.

Simple yet engaging fun
I've spent a lot of time playing this game, I personally love it. I'm currently married to a ghost after divorcing my wife and turning my kids into doves.

incredible when you first start playing it, but get's irritating due to excessive grinding pretty quickly after you advance considerably in the game

I don't usually like farming sims but
Stardew Valley is probably my favourite game! I play on Nintendo Switch, so I can only use vanilla game but even without mods it's still great! I'm excited for 1.6 !!

Title
An Endlessly Engaging Sim
There have been two games that I have played for 12 hours straight. One is Disco Elysium the other is Stardew Valley. The former is possibly the most engaging story I've ever experienced with more interesting characters and locations than you can fully experience in one playthrough. Stardew Valley on the other hand has nowhere near the depth, the titular town doesn't have the detailed history of Martinaise nor the mystery of who you are to hook you in. So why have I played them both for such an extended time and why have I given them both 5 stars? This is because Stardew Valley has possibly the most accessible and addictive gameplay loop in any video game I have ever played. There is always something to do, to strive for, another fish to catch, another dungeon to delve, another plant to water, another sewer-dwelling shadow monster to make your roommate. and most notably you can take it at your own pace. Because of these reasons mentioned Stardew Valley is one of the very few games I'd recommend to everyone and anyone even those weirdos who don't play games. I know people who played long enough to get to Skull Cavern then treated it like a roguelike, I have a friend who played like a combination fisherman and pokemon trainer trying to catch em all. I myself had two goals to kick out Amazon stand-in Joja and marry Harvey because apparently, I have a thing for nerdy brunette guys with glasses who had aspirations for aviation but were held back by their bad eyesight (see also Kim Kitsuragi from the aforementioned Disco Elysium) The queer romance cottage-core fantasy is what draws a lot of people to this game especially more recently. One thing not often discussed is Stardew Valley's timelessness since its Steam release in early 2016 Stardew Valley has only dropped below 10,000 concurrent users once in September 2016 and has maintained somewhere between 20,000 to 50,000 since with a massive peak of 95,000 on Christmas Eve 2020. 7 years on Stardew Valley is still going strong and I can see that continuing far into the future. This continued popularity and positivity has put developer Eric Barone (better known as Concerned Ape) in the pantheon of solo developers among the likes of Lucas Pope (Papers Please, Return of the Obra Dinn) and Toby Fox (Undertale and Deltarune)

TLDR:
Damn good game with an engaging loop and something for everyone, strong recommendation for anyone who has a computer with more processing power than a mobile phone. 5 Stars

    recently played to perfection and had a friend say that the further you progress through the game the more lonely and superficial it all feels and I feel the same. Great playing co-op though.
