This game really knocks it out of the park when it comes to Holidays too. Animal Crossing plays in Real Time, meaning as the days change and the weather and time. So changes your game. So around Christmas and all other holidays there are tons of fun activities to get into.
However! Remember though, Real Time. So if you plant those flowers in summer and don't come back for a few days to water or tend to them, they die!! Haha the fun consequences of Real Time games :)
If you've been on the line whether or not to give Animal Crossing a try. Do It!
That said, the only way to really advance your way forward is to grind for currency in-game to pay for improvements to your town. You have to catch fish and bugs and sell them to earn money to buy your clothes and pay off your home loans. That's hard enough in real life!
However you can trade things with friends, and play for just a little while every day and still get stuff done.
My only complaint is I wish there was more of a storyline, rather than the open-ended world. It can get boring playing a game where you're not really working toward a goal except being able to obtain more in-game items.
All in all, I'm glad I got it. It's a nice little escape for awhile each day.
I would give this series a 100 out of 10 even if that isn't possible.
It has a cute design and is something that can be played for hours, especially since it's a never ending game.
The only issues I have with it is: some of the task can be a bit tedious and annoying after awhile, especially having to collect money for Tom Nook to pay off your fee, so I don't really spend too much time doing things for myself.
I wish that your character was a bit more customizable, to be honest my character kind of looks like a derp and I didn't exactly want her to look like that either.
The Real Time can be annoying, especially if you can only play at night, so I just ended up changing the clock in the game.
Other than the issues that I have with the game, it is a lot of fun and is great if you don't want to play a game with a whole lot of challenge to it.
When I knew about New Leaf, I didn't have a 3DS and so I pulled out my Gamecube version and started playing that for a while, returning to my town and plucking ALL the weeds that had grown over the years. But all my villagers were still there.
I got my NewLeaf game the 2nd of the year! I was so excited and one of my friends from the Gamecube game ended up in my town! PONCHO! I still have him in my town. Along with a few new and old favorites~
