In my experience, no one ever gets thanked enough.
So, thanks. My mother, sister and I have been using your guides for quite awhile, myself especially. You have no idea how much your guides have kept me from restarting all of my hard work due to a silly error like I used to before I stumbled across your guides.
I've used your guides for Harvest Moon games, on the GameCube (Another Wonderful Life), Gameboy (More Friends of Mineral Town), Gameboy DS (Cute, Rune Factory) as well as your Sims 2 guides.
I used to get so annoyed at having to restart over and over, especially with Cute and Rune Factory. The games were so hard on my own, and I literally had no idea what I was doing! I was going crazy until I googled the games and stumbled onto your guides. I was having trouble with everything from wooing bachelors (or bachleorettes in the case of Rune Factory) to making money and befriending people until I found your guides.
Now thanks to you, I'm rich, happily married in each of the Harvest Moon games, and have children.
I know how long those guides take, having written a few on various games on my own, so I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the efforts!
Thank you so much for writing those guides! I hope you continue to write them, especially as the new Harvest Moon games come out! (Go Island of Happiness!) I hope that we can rely on you to pull us out of the mud, keep us from destroying either the game or the system itself (and believe me, I was tempted!!) and let us enjoy the games!
