Everyone needs to play at least one Animal Crossing game. You probably don't need to play more than one, but if you remain an Animal Crossing virgin then Let's Go To The City is a good place to start.
Especially since it's only $29 at JB Hi-Fi right now and until December 24. Pick it up for Christmas just in time to enjoy the holiday events in your village.
Although I wish they'd localised it for the southern hemisphere. Snow in December is just weird.
