Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Nintendo 3DS
I don't doubt though that anyone who is a fan of Animal Crossing and plays consistently will understand exactly what I'm saying. Somehow this series manages to get you extremely emotionally invested in a fictional town of anthropomorphic animals. Lets put it this way - I have certain characters birthdays in my iPhone calendar...... right.
I play video games fairly often - and I'm a little embarrassed to admit that the game that has held my interest for the longest period of time (by a long shot) is AC. I know it seems frustrating when you begin playing to constantly have to wait until the next day to get certain achievements - but I think the fact that this game limits and forces you to pace yourself is what allows you to stay engaged for so long.
This was my first Animal Crossing game so I went in pretty blind as to what to expect. I was drawn in largely by the aesthetics - the game is so beautiful and enjoyable to look at. I love all of the design elements! I was delighted though, to discover how hilarious the dialogue is as well.
