Farming is one of the oldest occupations, and the one that allowed the development of civilization. Once, most people were farmers. Today in developed countries, only a handful of the people are needed to grow everyone's food. While farming's a small part of many games, there have been a few in which it's the main point. "Farm Simulator 17" by Astragon Entertainment and Excalibur Publishing is the second most recent of a series of games of the name that over time have sold more than fifteen million combined. Among those playing it is Rita Mariner. She recently sent the Newser a story about the game and how to play it.
