My favorite villagers were Lobo, Vesta, and Pierce.

Here's hoping the 3DS version does not have grass decay and adds a lot more then City Folk did..

I've never liked Animal Crossing. I think it's the fact that there isn't much to do, and it's played in real time. It's not like The Sims, where you can get a job and die and go to work, or like Harvest Moon, where you have to do daily chores, raise animals, get married, have a kid, participate in festival minigames,..the only thing to do in Animal Crossing is to talk, clean up your town, and collect things.

Am I missing something? Because I really want to like the series but I just can't. Animal Crossing 3DS looks nice though, with the feature to run your own town. That will probably digest better with me.

For one thing, it has cuteness appeal. For another, you can collect and use things like a Mario outfit, a Triforce, etc. (nothing else comes to mind). I hear one of it's big draws is the ability to design and "market" your own clothes. I love to use that feature.

When I say "draw," I mean pro not con

Oh yeah, now I did like making clothes. I just think the game should be more meaty. Fossils, fish, bugs, clothes and furniture. I don't see the appeal...

There's no goal. I want there to be a goal. And that saddens me, because I never wanted to be a gamer who thinks things like 'you can't die, it's not a game!' when the game is actually good. I always made fun of those people, and now I am one. =\

@Tendollar: If you want to like Animal Crossing, but are put off by the lack of stuff, you might want to try its Follow the Leader clone on the DS, Magicians Quest Mysterious Times. It lacks a few things AC does (including a bit of polish), but introduces things like spells to cast, a greater ability to play with your townspeople (and get one of them as your "boyfriend"/"girlfriend"), and, probably most importantly if you want content, quests. And not the 20 Bear Asses kind (though you can do some of those optionally), but actual story quests.

For example, one quest involves you being kidnapped by Cerberus and having to break out of the Underworld with the help of a friendly ghost, or sneaking through a forbidden doorway to go back in time.

Its sequel recently came out in Japan, and looks like a hell of a lot of fun. Because it allows you to open up your own shop, and allows you to follow a profession like baking or clothes designing.

I've actually played Mysterious Times and I did enjoy it a lot more than AC. Especially with the ability to ride a broomstick.

Why did they put a midget with down syndrome in Animal Crossing?

@Yowuza: ...I think I've seen a different penguin that was a whole lot like her.

Now I should DL Magician's Quest for my R4 to see if I like it.

I really want to try the MQ sequel. It looks awesome.

Friga doesn't bother me too much. My personal Scrappy Villager would probably be Tippy, with her weird, moldy-looking head and empty eyes.

Huh. Never had her before. But the snooty girls were never favorites of mine.

I haven't played AC in about three months or so. I should probably go do that, yeah? There'll be lots of weeds...

I have both Wild World and City Folk, but I'm Australian and for some reason, they decided to release the European disc for CF here, which means I can't transfer my player from WW to CF, which is really what I want to do, I don't really want to start all over again.

That's aboiut the only thing I hate about Animal Crossing. You might stop playing it, but it doesn't.

Don't you try anything, you baked good you.

I wish there was a "freeze" function. Flowers don't wilt, only a few weeds grow, townies don't move, etc. etc., but it still costs something to activate it. Not like Bells or anything. But, uh, something else... bad. Or at least challenging.

[up][up][up] Or the devs could just make it so the townspeople actually put some effort into caring for the town while you're gone. No reason you need to be grounds-keeper for the entire town while the animals don't lift a finger! tongue

anyone else used a checklist for WW? I think I've used a couple.

Anyone have Wild World and want to visit my place? I need to get Nookintons' (that's the one with the hairdresser, right?)

Also if you want any specific buyable items I've gotten before, we could trade.
