I know -exactly- how you feel. I tried playing RF2 again after playing RF3 and found myself... well, I guess I was quite annoyed that I couldn't use my beloved dual blades anymore ;-; after a while I just quit and started playing RF3 again. Now I'm enjoying RF4~
I did, but so long ago. God...thinking about it now...9 years ago?
But after playing RF3, it's really hard to go back because of all the good things they changed about the series (farming is faster, it feels less clunky, time progresses indoors, a lot of small changes, etc.). It's sad, really, because I enjoyed the characters in 1 and 2 and want to experience them again but...I'm not sure if I can :/
I've recently been playing Rune Factory 4 and I really REALLY hope they make a RF5.
I've loved Pia's character since the very beginning x'D she's so cheerful and so clumsy that it's just funny. Her clueless side is even funnier! Though, I didn't marry her in my first two playthroughs because I felt like... Dunno. Like you're marrying yourself I guess?
It's mine, too! I absolutely love the series, it's a shame it's not more popular.
In order, Raven was my first...kinda. I was playing the game on hard, so when I got to the final dungeon, I actually managed to start and finish a new game on normal and marry Karina (lol, no idea why I said Evelyn, I guess it's been a while :P) before beating the final dungeon on hard. I married Pia third, though I don't know why it took me so long, since I really enjoy her character! (And her hate for squid)
Thanks! ^^ Rune factory is one of my favorite games ever. My first playthrough was Shara because I felt bad not choosing her after helping Micah like that c': after that I grew a stronger will and married Pia on my second playthrough and Raven on my Third. I think you meant Sophia when you said Evelyn...? Because she wasn't a bachelorette x'D
