Animal Crossing is not your average everyday video game. In Animal Crossing you play as yourself in a digital town that is populated by humanoid animals. There's no real end, and there is no story. There's just you, and errands to run, fish and bugs to catch, fossils to find, and letters to write. I'm not sure quite what it is, but I know I like it. If you start to play, chances are you'll have to play it every day, because you never know what you're going to miss. If the Sims seems a little too hardcore for you, I highly recommend Animal Crossing. But then, I highly recommend Animal Crossing to anyone. Once it gets its hooks into you, you'll never go another day without playing it.
