Thanks perhaps in large part to Stardew Valley (which will soon have multiplayer on PS4 and Xbox One) the potato game genre has been booming! New farming games are coming out left and right. And because most single-person or small-team indie groups tend to build their games on PC, we get a lot of these awesome farming games on PC first. Compared to ten years ago, Steam is overflowing with farming games! Sometimes they come to console later, but some will remain exclusive forever.

But there is good news for everyone who has a preference for console gaming, or who doesn’t have a game-worthy PC right now. We’ve put together a satisfyingly large list of farming games that are either already available on console, or are confirmed to be coming to console at a later time.

All of these games contain farming, growing or gardening mechanics, and they are all available on at least one dedicated gaming machine that is currently still in production. But they are not all in the same genre, and the emphasis placed on farming is different in each game, so these lists represent a variety. We hope you’ll spot some of your favorites here, and maybe even have a few more to tell us about, so we can continue to make this list longer and longer.

    @kikki, this is a great list! Pretty exhaustive. I’ll take a look at Picontier. I was a backer for Earthlock. I need to finish it.

    Thanks for this amazing list! I really enjoy farming games, and Stardew Valley and ACNL are two of my favorite games.

      You’re very welcome. I really wanted to include ‘Fantasy Life’ on this list as well, but technically, there’s no farming in it! You can’t plant anything 🙁 But it FEELS like it fits the theme, lol, with all of the cooking and foraging and crafting you can do. I almost created an ‘honorable mention’ category JUST for Fantasy Life, lol.

    This is almost the exact kind of list I was searching for the other day and was having no luck making myself! I love ACNL and the series is one of my all time favorites. I’m playing Garden Paws on PC and it’s one of about 3 games I’ve ever played on PC and will absolutely be getting on Switch. Stardew took quite a lot of my hours on Xbox ???? I’ll have to try some of the others too! Thanks a bunch!

      I’m so glad the list looks useful to you 🙂 I can’t actually play on PC myself as my laptop has no dedicated graphics card. I can play for a few minutes but games don’t run well and also overheat my laptop pretty quickly. So I always make note of any farming game that becomes available on console! 🙂
