This and FoMT got me hooked. I wanted this particular game first when it came out, but I could only find FoMT when I went back to stores to buy it. But it's not about FoMT right now, it's about AWL. This game literally made my childhood. I loved every character, I loved the stories and cutscenes, I loved the town (though it's small) because it had so much life in it. Now I feel like HM tries to compensate for really stereotypical and boring characters by making the land huge and trying to put a lot of activities around. This town literally came together. You loved each and every character. The music was beautiful, your life was amazing, your family was really a family. This game may be long and tedious to some, but it's a story; that's why I loved it so much. I eagerly waited for the next chapter to see what would change. THIS IS THE ONLY GAME IN WHICH YOU AGE. It's about your life! All the other HM games don't end, they go on forever and ever. You never get old, your child stays a kid at the oldest, and that's it! I find this was the most interactive game; you really form a bond with your animals with the cuddle option. Although I did find that your horse will eventually become grumpy and stay that way forever. Nonetheless, it's a fantastic game and I recommend it to everyone who has the patience to watch a wonderful story unfold.
