Unbelievable! i have never played Animal crossing, but this one i am sure to give a go! 

I never played an AC game and I kind of refuse to, seeing how little they changed since the first game on N64.

Although I have to say that this game looks better, with being the mayor and all.

I don't get this game, you just do nothing in it. Like I was sort of interested in the mayor aspects of it but then learned animals living in your town don't complain if you do a crap job...so what's the point? May as well not even bother.
