#43: Animal Crossing: New Leaf
The Animal Crossing series, New Leaf among it (as it is my favorite game in the series) is one that I hold dear to my heart for a number of reasons. One, it's a game that all of my family loves to play, and so I cherish the moments that we get to play together, visit each other's villages, or just chat about what shenanigans transpired. Secondly, it's a game that doesn't have an end, or really any overarching goals to accomplish. It's a game which progresses as quickly or slowly as you want it to. In that way it's just refreshing to spend either a few minutes or a few hours messing around in your quiet little village. Finally, the game is so charming and free spirited that you just fall in love with the cast of characters in your town. Fauna is definitely my favorite villager dearie! In a medium that's always pushing the boundaries for the sake of pushing boundaries, I find myself going back to the town of Shire to visit some old friends. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
