Great For Taking Your Mind Off Things
This is a great game to take your mind off your troubles. A few years ago I was really stressed (stressed at work plus problems in my home life - you know the drill), so to help bring a little simple fun back into my life I treated myself to a DS and one of the games I bought was Animal Crossing.
Perfect. And such fun. I like the creativity within the game. I like games where you can build and create, rather than violent shoot-em-ups etc... they just stress me out even more. I like the idea of building your own town, and interracting with all the various characters (and yes I have my favourite characters). There is also enough humour within the game (however subtle it is), which amuses me.
When I first got the game it was all I did on my off-time, for months I would be looking to see what has changed, who is new in town, what new stuff I could collect.
Unfortunately, I haven't played it for some time. I bet my town is full of weeds now. Hmmm.... I wonder if that means I have one of those Rafflesia flowers now. I may just switch my game back on and see....
