1. Animal Crossing (for the Gamecube anyway): You start out on a train moving to a new city. You get there and have to buy a house, but you have no money so you have to sell pretty much everything you find. Once you settle into your house you can talk with the villagers and occasional visitors and depending on how you treat them your villagers either like you (send you stuff) or don't like you. Animal Crossing is full of everything, from town events (based on your GCNs internal clock), so you can have Christmas celebrations on Christmas. You can travel to your friends towns and meet their villagers. You can play the "Turnip Market" and buy and sell Turnips at the local store. Animal Crossing is a lot like life (only without pretty much everything lol), you shop at the store, you fish in the river/ocean, you talk with people, you even have to pick weeds from your town. Animal Crossing has no end, you can play as long and as hard as you want but you cannot finish this game.Originally Posted by jason416
2. The blue ray will only appeal to a certain number of people (those who actually know what it is lol) where as Nintendo is focusing on making games. Games for everybody, from your 4 year old sister to your 80 year old grandfather. A lot of people who buy Wiis buy them because of Wii Sports, Big Brain Academy and now Wii Fit. Hard core gamers are a small majority of the world and Nintendo knows this, thats why they make games that appeal to everyone.
