Something that blows me away about animal crossing

Animal crossing games get tiny marketing campaigns, but put up monster sales. I have yet to see one commercial on tv, but the game has sold 200,000 units in 5 days! That's crazy! I still haven't got my copy yet, I love animal crossing and am happy it's a big hit!

I think the Wii version was a bomb though. The handheld titles have insane lives though.

In terms of ratings, the Wii version was a good 15 points below the others on Metacritic, but it still sold like 4.5 million copies.

Was City Folk that bad? It is the only AC I didn't get around to playing.

It just didn't really add anything from what I heard which is why it is the only animal crossing I never played.

City Folk wasn't even bad. In fact, it was an improvement over Wild World. It was 60 FPS, you could add emotions on whatever day you felt like, take snapshots.

The grass deterioration, however, negated all of the above. It's that bad. And, if you don't hack into your town, it'll pretty much stay that way for life.

Changed my sig, because Mega Man in Smash Bros. is all that matters, now. Except Sonic. Not changing this part until he's announced.

There's been loads of adverts on TV in the UK. Nintendo have become really aggressive as I've seen plenty of DKCR, Luigi's Mansion adverts. There are others but no Wii U adverts.

That's UK though. I didn't say they don't advertise, I said Animal Crossing doesn't get huge marketing campaigns. The numbers it sells though, are unbelievable.
