I prefer Super Methane Bros. Maybe because that was one of the last games I ever got for the Miggy, it is definitely more simplistic than BB and Rodland. Good to play with the younger kids.

It's a little bit of Harvest Moon (but far less grindy) and a little bit of Animal Crossing. Can't wait for Haunted Chocolatier.

Of course the absolute top is Titanic Adventure Out of Time (1996). Who needs wasteful FMVs when you can have seamless digital still frames spliced together. Peak game design that is.
