What's a good decent Harvest Moon game to have for the DS/3DS where I have never played a harvest moon game ever.

So what's a good decent Harvest Moon game to start out with to get used to the gameplay?

The best place to read about Harvest Moon is:

Provides a lot of information (and walkthroughs). I prefer Rune Factory, myself as I like a little battling with my farming. :D

I don't understand why you want a recommendation besides New Beginning. No reason not to get the latest (and widely considered, one of the greatest). If you want to save some bucks because you just want to try HM out briefly... emulation.

A New Beginning is by far the best farming-focused Harvest Moon since A Wonderful Life on Gamecube. The Rune Factory games are the way to go if you want more RPG elements, but there's no reason to look at anything other than A New Beginning for farm games.
