Farm Games

Farm games are a type of computer games that belong to the genre of simulators. The player plays as a farmer and his main task is to take care of his farm and fields.

One can distinguish two major types of farm games. The first is much more elaborate farm simulation. The player has to spend long hours working in the field, looking around the farm or planning on investments. You need to take care of your equipment, fuel, fertilizers, crops, animals and all that goes with it.

Thus you become a real farmer starting with a small patch of grass but with good management soon you can have hectares of fields. Due to the hardware requirements, the games are most of the time suited only for PCs although as of late the console versions have also emerged. The most popular simulator of this type has been Farming Simulator, for example, FS 17, which with every new version gives the fans, an increasingly elaborate and realistic simulation. In this series, the graphics perfectly reflect the reality.

The second category of farm games comprises of the titles that focus on casual entertainment and fun They do not care for realism but are, nevertheless, equally engaging. They are designed for both the youngest and older fans of farm games. The main task which the players face is not the prudent management of funds. Money and simulation of real-life conditions come second, what we do instead is planting, harvesting, and feeding our livestock.

The game environment in these farm games is often animated, colorful and eye-friendly. Due to low requirements, such games are available for phones and tablets. The most popular titles in this category were Hayday, Green Farm, and Farm Frenzy. Some of them can be played using social media, such as Facebook, which allows you to have fun with your friends. Usually, these games are available for small amounts of money, and many of them will be available for free download.
