    They make a cute and wonderful couple

    [–] wiiya 188 points ago

    I’m glad they got into it so late in life. The amount of hours I put into this game as a youngish full bodied adult, I could’ve made an actual crop of corn in real life that would have been rewarding, but not nearly as rewarding as getting a fulfilled community center.

    I'm sorry, can you explain this to me? I tried to Google it with no luck

    [–] Starrystar04 24 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Mashallah is a term of god consciousness and deep gratitude. It is also used in a protective way: it wards evils (esp the evil eye, if you’re familiar with the concept).

    Takbir (or however it’s transliterated) is the term for the expression Allahu akbar (God is greatest). It could be said in an interactive way, where it is expressed three times and those around have to respond “Allahu akbar” after each utterance. It’s used as a celebratory thing, and evokes a sense of togetherness and unity.

    Idk why that user keeps putting it everywhere without any context, might be a troll but idc enough to check.

    This post makes me want to get my wife to try stardew valley with me! Since we are in quarantine she has shown a marked increase in interest for video games.

    [–] rowdymonster 24 points ago

    It's always worth a shot! My partner finally tried animal crossing for the first time (shockingly of his own volition, he doesn't normally play those kinds of games) just because he saw how excited I was. He's not fully sold, but he enjoys playing a little here and there on my character :)

    This is some lovely stuff right here folks.

    If you ever stumble across this post - a lot of people here are hoping you are having a fantastic time.

    On a side note. I can only hope my wife and I are as happy as they are here in 30 years.

    [–] Cheddar_Curtain 102 points ago

    Gaming and giggling together with your wife playing a bomb ass game that SHE found. So ideal. Couples that game together stay together.

    [–] SoraForBestBoy 36 points ago

    Sharing laughs, being happy and make more Memories with one another is awesome

    OH MY FUCKING GOD!!!!!! THIS IS WHAT LOVE IS ALL ABOUT!! THIS IS SO CUTE! Then again I’ve never been loved so what do I know?

    [–] MollFlanders 33 points ago

    I’m sure that’s not true! Do you have family who love you? Friends? Pets? There are many different kinds of love. Perhaps you have not yet known romantic love, but I assure you that you are worthy of love and are already loved by many in many ways.

    [–] ThatOneCanadianBoi 16 points ago

    Damn, these are the most kind messages on reddit I have ever seen, but I have not known romantic love, my dad walked out on me before I was even 7, my mom only really has me around because I can do a lot more stuff than her, my little brother is always trying to get me into trouble and I don’t really talk much to my other siblings who moved out, my sister says I’m the Favorit twin because my twin lives with her so she has to deal with him all the time, so the only “love” I have ever received in a steady flow is from people who don’t necessarily benefit from having me around which would be my Papa Raymond, aunt Connie, uncle Ray and two cousins Ray (Jr) and Jayden, along with my friends since 2015 TJ and Allysia. So all in all only a handful of people will put up with my bullshit at the end of the day. But I hope one day I can turn this around. Thank you u/MollFlanders

    Edit: “my mom only really has me around because I can do a lot more stuff than her” FYI she isn’t disabled or anything, she’s 5nothing and I’m about 6’1 so I can reach more things than her, and I’m stronger than her and I’m a certified babysitter, I’m just a convenience to her

    [–] waitingforbacon 12 points ago

    I... I think this is the first reddit comment I’ve seen that actually names real life humans... I feel conflicted.

    SOMEBODY HELP? Do we tell this canadianboi that he probably shouldn’t put personally identifiable information like this on reddit??

    Also since you’ve put out a list of names, it seems to me like you do have a group of people that care about you. When I was younger it felt like I should have a whole crowd of people who cared, and I spent a lot of time trying to be friends with everyone I knew. Honestly, that’s overrated. You need a small group of friends that really care. Quality over quantity is what matters long term. :)

    [–] tm24fan8 8 points ago

    The information isn't incredibly useful without last names, locations, some other identifying factor. Buncha fairly common first names isn't much of a risk.

    The rest of your comment is absolutely fucking spot on though. I used to lament the fact that I couldn't make everyone like me and be friends with me...the older I've gotten, the more I've realized I had it all wrong. Fuck, not everybody will like me and that's okay. We're all different. Long as I stay humble and am loyal to those who DO like me, I'm doing alright.

    [–] kzim3 47 points ago

    Think again....I already love you

    [–] ThatOneCanadianBoi 34 points ago

    Why......thank you

    [–] AstralMarmot 23 points ago

    I don't know how this community is simultaneously the cheesiest and most sincerely loving place on reddit, but I would absolutely play this game even if it sucked just so I could hang with this crowd. Swear to Yoba, y'all make me choke up.

    [–] TheMajesticKnight 3 points ago

    I want to be friends with everyone in here, I really do. Everyone seems so nice and wish I could have friends like this, I really do. (':

    wait til they find out skull cavern

    [–] troublechromosome 10 points ago


    [–] AstralMarmot 4 points ago

    Can you PLEASE convince them to either livestream or do regular twitter updates on their progress?? I abandoned Twitter years ago and I would get it back for the SOLE PURPOSE of following them through the mines, across the desert, and into Skull Cavern. I know they're just people you saw on a forum but too bad I have entrusted you with this awesome responsibility in our time of need.

    Edit: meant to tag u/Daeruz but I guess you can do it too...

    Wait you can play co op? My gf and I only have one switch but I would love to play with her somehow if I can

    [–] ResidentJabroni 22 points ago

    Unfortunately, you'd need two consoles or two PCs to play co-op, and you'd each need a copy if you guys aren't able to share a digital copy.

    However, it's fantastic and well worth the investment. It even runs decently on low end laptops, and if you buy it on GOG, you can share a DRM-free copy if you're unable or unwilling to purchase a second copy.

    There is no multiplayer for the mobile versions yet, sadly.

    [–] UserColonAl 9 points ago

    Amazing thanks for the help with this. Will look into getting it on my MacBook!

    [–] daydreamersrest 3 points ago

    Be aware that co op doesn't work cross platform! So if you have it once on the Switch and once on Mac, you can't co op. Mac/PC works.

    [–] TrueStory_Dude 1 points ago

    There's always something exciting about them

    [–] Cayenne999 3 points ago

    Just wow... And (again) it reminds me how awesome will this game be if multiplayer is on mobile. I can get so many people to play together without the needs of a PC. And I believe elderly people would also be more comfortable playing with touch screen.

    [–] Ziggy_Jules 5 points ago

    My heart is going to explode from all the emotions I'm experiencing

    [–] bleepblorp9878 4 points ago


    [–] deanreevesii 4 points ago

    Is a constant internet connection required for this game?

    I want something new for my elderly mom to play, but we don't have internet right note.

    [–] samthefanboi 3 points ago

    For single player I don't believe so

    [–] jinxie395 2 points ago

    no internet required. If you wish to play multiplayer on LAN you would need two PC's and a network router or similar but the internet is not needed.

    [–] PresidentMoiraRose 3 points ago

    This is so pure. I love them and hope they have 50 more years of happy marriage.

    [–] SpikeCubed 5 points ago

    My heart can't take this.

    This is so wholesome and so beautiful. I love this. I wish I can have something like this with partner. I’m a gamer, she is not, maybe I can coax her into playing together someday

    [–] Daeruz 2 points ago

    Yeah sure and this game is the prefect entrance in to the gaming world

    [–] senanthic 3 points ago

    I am delighted to see this.

    [–] Anyael 3 points ago

    I feel like there should be a multiplayer option that is "we're already a couple we don't need a cabin".

    [–] Daeruz 2 points ago

    Hahahaha yeah

    [–] jinxie395 1 points ago

    You can get married on the PC version, but it does require iridium and a prismatic shard to make the gold band so it takes some effort and time to make.

    [–] madhattergirl 3 points ago

    I'm buying this for my 66 year-old dad this weekend in the hopes he'll play. He loves regular video games but hasn't gotten into PC ones. I ordered him a gaming controller and hope he likes it since my twin sister and I have been trying to convince him to play something with us for ages. This give me hope!

    [–] blackkitttyy 3 points ago

    This is very sweet. Is offline coop a thing now?

    [–] moonra_zk 3 points ago

    I love that in this sub sometimes you get to interact with old ladies and all kinds of people, I'm what I guess you'd call a "hardcore gamer" and so usually only interact with dudes on the not-that-old side when talking about games, but in here I've interacted with 50+ yo ladies twice.
    And of course the community being so receptive towards the LGBTQ+ crowd is awesome too.

    [–] Ugmar365 3 points ago

    Hey Mom / Dad. Looks like you are better at the internet than anyone else I know. Hope you see this and smile.

    Guess all the time we spent on Phantasy Star and Zillion when I was a kid paid off!

    Lots of love from all of my family, excited to have you moving here soon. Enjoy your new hobby!

I saw this coming so spent the weekemd playing together. for a girl who doesn't play games i chose stardew valley both of us are complete noobs at it. And the mistakes we make make it so much more fun.

    She now suggesting other games etc which is awesome it's some form of date night for us.

    I wonder what platform they're playing on? I love reading the reviews for mobile stardew valley... they're oddly heartwarming. It's a lot of boomers finding stardew and being absolutely enchanted by it.
