    It's shocking we don't have a thread on this actively! Let's change that.

    Use this thread to discuss Animal Crossing, one of the cutest and most relaxing game series of all time. I've been a fan since New Leaf and have amassed a ton of time on it.

    What are you guys currently up to in Animal Crossing?

    I got Happy Home Designer recently because it was on sale. In New Leaf, I'm not up to much, mostly playing Desert Island Escape, but in HHD, I just finished designing a shop. Right now on New Leaf, I have 400k+ loan to pay off, and my active Public Works is the Dream Suite. I also picked up some amiibo cards yesterday, so I can play Desert Island Escape for free.

    OMG I LOVE ANIMAL CROSSING

    I've played City Folk and New Leaf before, and both are so good. I can't say anything about City Folk, as I lost the disc years ago...

    On New Leaf, my town tree finally grew to its maximum stage a few weeks ago, and it's so pretty! I've ignored expanding my home until I can finish up a room that looks like a mayor's office. So right now, not really doing anything. I just like sitting down somewhere and listening to the music... it's so beautiful, especially 6pm, 7pm, 8pm, 11pm and 11am.

    Yay, I'm so happy to see fans already. I'm actually playing right now and trying to complete my house. There's quite a few items I've got left to get. If any of you guys have the update and access to some Amiibo card RVs, lemme know. It's tough to get hold of what you want, haha.

    Tried using my Isabelle card for that because I wanted her to have the day off. Didn't work, but I'll try another card tomorrow. Might use one of my Zelda amiibos for an RV some time if I'm online. Of course the odds of that happening are slim because I have to go out of the way for wi-fi. Also, Katrina is in my town today, so I guess it's time for some fortune telling.

    I might also make Link and Samus in my game.

    Cards of special characters won't bring them to the campsite. You gotta use the Amiibo figure to do so! I time travel so any time a card fails I'll just progress the day, shamelessly. :P

    I have been a fan since city folk, I was in love with the game and I played every day. I probably have played it for a good 7000+ hours. I played it all the time with friends, or was the reason my mom got is a Wii. Later I got new Leaf release day at 6 in the morning and even dressed up as the girl villager on the front cover I was so hyper New Leaf and I've only put about 500 hours in and I haven't played in about a year. I want to change that since the new update came out and maybe pick up some amino cards. I really do love the series and I find it very relaxing. It used to the way I unwound. I did pick up a happy home designer and I was pretty hyped for that game for a little while after I had unlocked all of the settings with play coins it got really boring and I found myself enjoying not as much, honestly I'm a little upset at the quality of that game. I hope there's a new main Series game coming to switch since there have been nothing but it's been off the past couple years and I really would love to get the new Animal Crossing Main Series game if they put it on the swich I would buy the console the day they announced switch Animal Crossing. It has been a lot of great memories for me.

    I've only played new leaf and happy home designer but i'd love to play city folk at some point. i actually ended up selling new leaf and i sort of regret it, but... i got money at least right? new leaf was such a cute game for me! i actually had quite a bit of stuff bc i sold a lot of things and yadda yadda. i loved the qr code thing you could use, i ended up using it a lot for designs for things i was obsessed with at the time. happy home designer i still have bc i downloaded it on my 3ds. it's an ok game, it's not my favorite. it's cute and all don't get me wrong but.. i only play it when im in the mood to play it i guess?

    Yeah, HHD lacked some of the charms the mainstream games had. I was kind of expecting more like what it actually was and one of the mainstream games combined. Maybe Amiibo Festival will be more to my tastes. It's on rollback at Walmart right now, but I could also order a used copy.

    On a side note, I'm tempted to write a PMDxAC crossover. Should be interesting to see how some of the villager handle themselves as Pokémon.

    Oh yeah, small update on NL: I met the donation goal for the Dream Suite. I could do a lot more if I just sold all my Ores, Fossils, and Gyroids, but I wanted to wait for them to go on Premium at Re-Tail. Ka-Ching!

    I actually played animal crossing all the way back in the game cube years. I also had the Wild World for the DS but it wasn't quite as good for a variety of reasons. About two years ago I finally got New Leaf, and I played pretty actively for most of that time. I completely paid off my house, and I have almost every K.K. Slider song. My favorite is and always will be Stale Cupcakes. If you are ever feeling like a sad song, I highly recommend it. Amiibo Festival is fun, though you need a few friends to really enjoy it. My current goal is to get back into it, and find the last few fish and bugs. (2 away on both of them) After that, who knows, I might start a new game, sell my town and all. or just keep it forever.

    The GCN version of Animal Crossing is so charming and pretty. I've emulated it a few times and fell in love with how alive the animals feel. The environments are great too! Who lived in your first town, if you remember? :)

    The only one that I remember from my first town was an eagle, can't even remember the name. I looked it up, and I think it was Apollo. I still have that village somewhere...

    My first AC game was New Leaf and I really love it. I've pretty much done everything I wanted for my town in my current save. Even after the update lets you sell your town and start fresh, I can't bring myself to delete everything because I'm way too attached to it haha

    I love the new campsite addition, though. It makes it easier to get certain goods since we only need to pay MEOW coupons in exchange instead of bells.

    I actually stopped playing after Pokémon Moon came out but I've been picking it up again recently. Right now I'm just trying to make good homes for my road pattern-placeholder characters by raising money to upgrade their houses.

    Oh, and if anyone wants peaches hmu because that's my native fruit

    I love the campsite and MEOW coupons, but I don't really ever do initiatives. If I want coupons, I'll usually just scan an Amiibo and get the 5 free coupons. The system is good but meh, doing it all just for MEOW coupons isn't my thing. The incentive could have been a bit better.

    I just collect the MEOW coupons so I can trade them in for Bells.

    Also I have no amiibo cards or friends *cry* so the campsite isn't much use to me, but it's a cute addition.

    With the new update, why would you sell your village? I would absolutely cry if I woke up one day and my village was gone...

    I didn't even want the game until a friend brought over City Folk. WHen I first made my file, WIllow and some bear lived in my town. Can't remember what he looks like or his name, I just remember that he was a lot like Apollo. And also Roscco and Hamphery in my town on New Leaf.

    Just a question to those who have played two games: when you started up your new game, did you decide to retain the name of your other town?

    I remember in City Folk, I had a town named Katvillie. In New Leaf, I named my town Katville for obvious nostalgic reasons. Am I the only one who's done that?
