Farmer’s Dynasty

Like Farming Simulator 19, Farmer’s Dynasty is a more realistic farming game.

But rather than focusing on the business side of farming, it focuses on solving quests and building relationships with other characters.

As a result, you split your time between running the farm, renovating your buildings, and doing the townsfolk favors.

It’s available on Windows computers and some consoles.

Stardew Valley

In Stardew Valley, you inherit your grandfather’s rundown farm and attempt to turn it into something great.

While your focus might be on running your farm, there’s plenty more to do as well.

You can fish, visit the mines to fight monsters and explore the world to learn more of Stardew Valley’s mysterious secrets.

It’s available on multiple platforms including computers, mobile devices, and consoles.

Verdant Skies

In Verdant Skies, you’re in a colony on a new planet, where you have to collect resources and build relationships to improve the settlement.

On your farm, you cultivate special crops native to your new planet and crossbreed them for stronger varieties.

Since you’re feeding a colony, not running a business, the game places focus on efficiency instead of profit.

Verdant Skies is available on computers only.

Farm Together

In Farm Together, you work alone or with your friends to turn your small plot of land into a huge farm.

In this game, time progresses while you’re not playing, so you’ll always have new tasks to complete.

With the right settings, you can visit your friends’ farms, while they’re not playing (and vice versa).

Farm Together is available on computers and consoles.

Staxel

Staxel is a great option for those who want the virtual farming experience without any stress.

In this game, you start with a wild area and turn it into a livable, working farm.

In addition to farming, you run errands for townsfolk, catch bugs, collect fossils, and pick flowers.

Staxel is available on consoles and computers.

Hay Day

Hay Day is a mobile game reminiscent of Farmville.

Like many other mobile games, building and production happens in real time, but you can speed it up with in-game purchases.

This is the simplest of the farming video games on this list, but it’s quickly addictive and great for when you’re on the go!

Hay Day is available on smartphones and tablets only.

These farming video games are sure to fill up your free time with farm life.
