I'm not gonna write an essay about why I hate the game, but I will say it's easily one of my most despised series of all time.


I just wanna know why people like it so much, there isn't much to do in these games really and It doesn't do much than another franchise can't offer you better. I'm sure there's a better fruit selling simulator out there.

Did you play online? Did you play it for more than one day?

TC, I'm with you. I can't understand the appeal. I've tried it for a few weeks, and even played online based on Gamefaqs recommendations. The whole premise felt shallow.

I need some actual gameplay in my videogames. Collecting trinkets and mowing the lawn is as dull in a videogame as it is in real life.

I personally play it to relax and have a stress free virtual life for a few minutes a day. It's therapeutic and extremely fun.

this, there arent many games like this... so its pretty much the go to game if you want this kind of experience (outside pc mmo styled games)

the difference is games like second life dont have the charm of animal crossing

I see where you're coming from there. I do the same with games like Minecraft and Flower. I've actually never played a AC game, and to be honest, I am not really a fan of the style, but I would absolutely give it a try.

I totally get you too. I don't play Minecraft because it doesn't visually appeal to me, but I would certainly consider trying it.

Well it is the number one best selling 3DS game of all time in Japan, so I guess people that don't like it are in the minority.

According to Iwata it sold much better than Nintendo ever predicted.
