Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life simulation role-playing game that provides a much more laid-back atmosphere compared to other RPGs. Instead of having to slay giant monsters and clear out creepy dungeons, players will simply need to manage their grandfather’s old farm and begin a new life.

It’s a wholesome game that takes place in a sleepy town full of interesting characters (as well as potential suitors), each with their own unique story to tell. Since the game focuses so heavily on your relationship with these individuals, we thought it would be a good idea to create a Stardew Valley tier list ranking all of the best characters in the game.
