A series of video games about farming (yes farming), raising animals, raising a family, and just...living. It focuses on small-time living, making friends with villagers while making a profit from your farmland. Although sounding boring to most people, this genre has been known to be terribly addictive.
Jack owns every single Harvest Moon game, from its beginning days on the SNES to the newest one on the Gamecube.
A lunar phenomenon that takes place during autumn, roughly at harvest time. The moon is much closer to the earth at that point, and takes on a brownish-yellow hue, presumably due to the dust in the earth's stratosphere.
Harvest Moon is also the US name of a series of farming simulations made in Japan. However, this does not apply to the games in their native country, where the series is called Bokujou Monogatari (or The Farm Story).
The harvest moon shines brightest as the crops begin to ripen.
