I came across this picture on the internet. I think it's a pretty old picture but damn it made me laugh. Man I miss me some Animal Crossing. Nintendo needs to do something fresh with that franchise. They should take the same basic concept/design and give it a makeover. They could also streamline some of the game play and menus. And of course, it's obvious they need to have some substantial online component.
Imagine having like a 20 person town online that players/residents could go in and out whenever they wanted. Running into someone in town would actually be like running into them. Going home would really be like getting away from the town. But make up different special occasions because I can't miss real ones. My family gets mad.
Damn, I loved Animal Crossing when it came out and I wish they'd do something more with it.
