I would skip RF 1 & 2. Although I enjoyed both of them at the time, they are rough around the edges and have some problems that might turn you from the series. Play RF3 or just play RF4 first. You don't really need to play previous games to enjoy the later ones.

That announcement was a roller coaster ride for me.
Rune Factory? AWESOME!
Rune Factory 4 remaster. Damn, everyone who likes RF already played it on 3DS and won't buy this, so we won't get a new one.
Rune Factory 5 in development. Holy t AWESOME!

People don't understand how important this game is considering there was very little hope for RF5 since it's been almost six years since RF4 and Neverland went bankrupt.

Please do not sleep on these games! They're so ****ing good.

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.

I was really excited with the reveal of RF5. I might get the port of 4 but haven't decided yet. Those games are just a lot of fun. I think 2 has been my favorite so far, it just had so much charm and it was really neat how the integrated the school in it. These games are just a ton of fun and I hate how the series has never gotten the love it deserves.

@Joeynator3000 I enjoyed Stardew a lot but my biggest problem was that it felt like the farming was the least important part of the game. It was just so easy to get sprinklers, then plan crops and forget about them. You occasionally harvest them to drop in the shipment box and that's really it. It's nice that it gives you time to do other things but it hurts the game to me because it feels like it diminishes the farming and the aspect of actually making your farm successful.

I thought Stardew was a lighter version of Rune Factory.

@TheLZdragon perhaps, but it doesn’t have quite the same feel there. I mean I really liked the game I just would have preferred the farm had a little more importance.

I just realized that I can finally have a high quality and HD wallpaper taken from the game's opening movie now. lol

I mean, my current one is fine due to Photoshop stuff, but it's still kinda blurry/pixelly since it's from the 3DS's resolution. I couldn't find an HD version of the opening way back then, so...yeah. >.<

I wonder if RF5 will look like the console games or keep the style of the numbered games.
While I did really like the how Frontier and Tides of Destiny looked, I think the 2D style works really well for getting from point A to point B quickly. One think I really appreciated with the handheld games is how with each one they cut back the time it takes to get from your farm to anywhere in town.

I've only played 4, so I'm fine with whatever. I wouldn't mind experiencing a 3D RF though.

@Cynas I kind of hope it has a similar look to tides. Just the look though, I didn’t really like the way farming worked in that one. I prefer actually living on a farm and having the more traditional farming gameplay. Other than the farming though if hey had just made minor tweaks to tides to allow you to pick boy or girl from the beginning it would have been nearly perfect.

@Yorumi I know a lot of people hate on Tides but I think it's my second favourite game in the series. I really loved the exploration and combat. Tides of Destiny mixed with Rune Factory 4 would be the perfect game for me.

Like I said though, I do really like how quick it is to get around in the 2D games, but as long as they could figure out a layout in 3D where it doesn't take too long to get around, and possibly no loading screens in town, I'd be happy.

I thought this series was dead after the developer went bankrupt. I loved Rune Factory 4 on the 3DS. Here's hoping #5 is just as good in its own way.

@Cynas I imagine it would't be hard to just make some teleporters or something like that to the dungeons. Admittedly I never felt like in tides I had that much trouble getting to places. I forgot all the travel methods but it seemed like I could basically teleport where I needed to go when I needed to.

@Yorumi Getting to the actual dungeons was fine in Tides, I'm mainly talking about getting around town. With the 2D games you can walk across the entire town within seconds because of how your character is scaled. Your character can run past a house in a couple of steps. In 3D games it's much more time consuming to walk around town.

@Cynas ah yeah. In that case what I'd personally like is some quick travel options(a taxi basically) around town and then also have time slowed or stopped in town. I feel like I don't want to totally lose the scale of the town but also don't want to spend all day walking around it either. Either way I can't wait, I'm so glad they announced it.

@Joeynator3000 3D Rune Factory already exists on the Wii, and later the PS3.
It wasn't great... but I think they should try it again.

Yeah I know they exist, I've only played 4, though.

I've played the first and 4.

I actually played 4 all the way to the first set of credits... Which was a whole one in game month.

But I dunno, it kinda felt like I was done by then, and I completely lost interest after that.

I wonder what they added as they mention it was a special version with new content.

So far all we know is that it includes new marriage-related events and a new difficulty setting.

Rune Factory Frontier might be my favourite RF. The runie system wasn't great but if you know how to deal with them, it becomes a non-issue. The characters are all my favourites (especially Mist) and it looked great.

RF4 is the better game, for sure, but Frontier really had a wonderful atmosphere. I hope RF5 is similar.
