So I finally got a chance to play around with Animal Crossing over the break, and I was looking forward to seing what the big deal was. I'd heard that it was supposed to be one of the best and most addictive games around, but I logged a couple hours on it, and really didn't understand what the point of it all was. Being able to get NES games is cool and all, but I have my NES if I want to play those. Should I really care about furnishing a virtual house? What is it about this game that everyone thinks is so great?
