The Harvest Moon Effect

As I have grown over the years, I have become more and more Nostalgic about my years as a child growing up in the 90’s. I look back on those years fondly and with great joy;  remembering all of the fun I had playing still relevant Nintendo systems.

With the Technological revolution we have seen in the last 20 years, have come waves upon waves of new gaming systems.    Almost everyone had a gaming system of sorts growing up, whether it was a gameboy color, a sega dreamcast, or even the old fashioned snes. We all took away important life lessons from the games we played. Whether it was to never give up(mario) follow your dream(pokemon) or the value of a hard days work(HM64).

My first video game ever was Pokemon Blue, I picked Squirtle and we had some fun times, at least 30 hours worth. But I digress, here are some of the major lessons learned throughout our time playing Video Games (in no particular order).


The one thing Ash Ketchum has taught us, other than not to be late, is to follow your dreams; no matter how dumb, drastic, or difficult. Oh, and that Gary’s a jerk off.


Harvest Moon, the greatest game for the Nintendo 64, taught us many things. The main one being that Girls love Cake, and Flowers, if you give them enough cake and flowers they will eventually Marry you.

3. Harvest Moon also taught us the importance and value of putting in a Hard days work, while at the same time never forgetting to have Fun.

4.Oh the classics, Mario and Luigi taught us the importance of persevering and  Teamwork because together, they were an unstoppable TRAIN OF MADNESS AND VICTORY


Plain and simple, Duke Nukem taught us(or me at least) that Blowing stuff up is a blast(pun intended), and that it solves all of our worldly problems.


Oh Zelda, what a world. Zelda taught us many things. It takes time to get a heart, music makes travelling possible, Friendship between a girl and boy is possible, and finally, No matter what Mask you wear, you will always be the same on the inside.
