I imagine a lot of farmers playing this game to relax after a long day of farming...

I agree, although I personally would never come home after a long day of work and play a video game that simulates my job lol

Better than the new Harvest Moon I guess.

Germany loves it. And it is not that bad of a game. Also has a big modding community.

I don't think it's bad, I can't judge the game. I just wish I could find a way to profit from such a large and passionate following as consistently as these devs do : ) haha.

Well they found their niche and provide a quality product. There is no other realistic looking simulation about farming out there. So find your niche :D

Who the hell buys this garbage

I bought an outdatwed version on sale, it's pretty damn good for what it is. 2017 at least, it's relaxing and well it does exactly what it says on the tin. It's a damn good farming sim, like FarmVille or Harvest moon but with realism on top and a more methodical and slow pace.
