I don't get Animal Crossing. My first Animal Crossing experience was on the original DS. Based on reviews, it was one of the first games I picked up for the console and I just literally felt as though I had no idea what I was doing, or even what I was supposed to be doing.
That weird feeling of just sort of wandering around the environment doing all these things that felt completely insignificant has stayed with me, to the point where I have zero enthusiasm for Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Absolute zero. I can't imagine how I would enjoy it.
But I've almost succumbed. On twitter people seem to be going mad for it.
So what I would really like to hear from this Community Review is, to begin with, can someone explain to me what is interesting about this game? What it is that sucks people in? I sincerely want to know! I love my 3DS, and I tend to love Nintendo's quirkier offerings, so there's a part of me that would really like to love Animal Crossing. Maybe there's misfiring synapse in my brain or something?
