Let me just be blunt: Animal Crossing has been ruined. Not by LeafTools hackers, not by Wiimmfi, but by Nintendo themselves.

Now, I've noticed a lot of topics about HHD, the watered down home designer running off the New Leaf engine. However there is a suprising lack of posts about it's sister on the Wii U, Animal Crossing: Figure Cashgrab Fu- er, Amiibo Festival. This game should be the absolute BANE of Nintendo fans and Animal Crossing fans alike, but for some reason it's reciving high praise.

You know what, I don't even know why I'm making this post when it's more than likely going to get severe backlash by people who kiss-up to Nintendo and will not let someone else have their own opinion. How dare I point out that AC:AF costs a minimum of $120 to play? How dare I point out that AC:NL caused all the furries and unsavory characters to come into the Animal Crossing fandom? How dare I come hard on people who poke fun at City Folk when they haven't played anything outside of NL? How dare I treat Nintendo the same way the fans are being treated by them? How dare I?

Whatever. Not even going to bother anymore with these people.

Oh no, Animal Crossing is becoming the new Sonic?

In my opinion, NL is my least favorite game in the series and I think CF is the best. Let me just say I have explained it many times, and that I have played every AC game except for the N64 game, the japanese gamecube game, and e+. I don't like the direction AC is going either, because now theres a ton of stuff and the games aren't as high quality to me for some reason.

^ Meh, I feel like you have to take your nostalgia goggles off. If your only reason for saying the game is going downhill is because there's "too much stuff," you're basically saying it's going downhill for progressing and adding new things. I've played all the AC games (besides Doubutsu no Mori e+), and I agree with the majority who say NL is simply the best. CF is seen as the "worst" among most people because it simply just didn't add enough from Wild World, and it even made some things worse (i.e. villager interaction). I still think it was a fine game, but out of all of them, the least impressive.

But anyway, C3po345, I don't really know why you're so upset... No one's claiming that these are full-fledged games... They're spin-offs, and for a spinoff, HHD looks quite good honestly. I do think Amiibo Festival is kind of meh, but you can just avoid it and not play it. I'm SURE Nintendo is going to make another main AC game, so you don't have to worry about that. But in the meantime, what harm exactly is there in making spinoffs that you don't have to play if you don't want to? Nintendo hasn't committed some travesty by potentially making a lackluster AC spinoff... If anything, it's a somewhat pleasant surprise considering we've never gotten anything like it outside the regular AC games, even if it's kind of underwhelming.

Also, it's kind of ridiculous for you to blame Nintendo and AC:NL for causing... furries and "unsavory characters" to come into the Animal Crossing fandom... That's hardly something they can control, and if anything is simply just the result of the game becoming more popular. Plus, how does that take away from your own enjoyment when playing Animal Crossing? All fandoms have strange people in them, especially popular ones.

I don't know, NL just wasn't for me, also they didn't just add stuff, they removed and ruined stuff ( at least to me ) . Its fine if you like NL, because its a better game to you. But you can't force someone to play a game that they don't like. Its like if you are making someone wear an extremely tiny pair of socks. It just doesn't work.

Also, its fine if you hate CF, but I'm not wearing nostalgia goggles, at least not an extremely big pair; I started playing CF in July this year, and NL was my 1st AC game.

I liked new leaf for a while. But it just got so old to me and it made me go back to the GameCube AC because i feel like The first is the best of the whole series and CF wasn't as bad as others say it was. I think the series still has a chance but it could be ruined easily if the true fans don't speak up about it.

Agreed. I've stopped playing AC as a whole, much anymore. I only go on my game every 2-3 weeks.

I don't think I'm a true fan. I only got NL because someone on Miiverse had it, and now I no longer play it, and hate the game except for the humans and online features.

To be honest I don't think the series has a chance and is the new Metroid/Chibi-Robo/Sonic, and if not, then the new Fire Emblem.

Just look at it. You can easily relate whats the same about the AC and Fire Emblem fanbase, before and after the game that made them a popular series ( NL for AC, Awakening for Fire Emblem ), and you can also relate how AC is becoming like Metroid/Chibi-Robo/Sonic when you look at the games themselves. Both an AC spin-off and a Metroid spin-off were announced at E3 this year. No offense, but I think AC is going downhill and becoming a cash grab for Nintendo, and really fast.

"AC is going downhill and becoming a cash grab for Nintendo, and really fast."
Yeah. I only play the good ol days aka GC and WW now, before a spinoff ac was ever though of. Like the moon landing in the 40s. Nobody would ever DREAM that there would be something like that.

Yeah. I swear. They could have combined the cost to make HHD and Amiibo Festival and made the Wii U one we were hoping for. Then they made two spinoffs. Cash grabber much? I mean, you had a perfect chance, Nintendo, to make a GOOD AC game. Then we got spinoffs. Bad.


If Nintendo doesn't go back to about 2012 FAST they are gonna be pulled into the pit with all the game companies that died. I don't want that to happen. Nobody on this SITE wants it to happen. And I know a well bit of others that don't want it to happen.


Nintendo. Stahp. Take a good look at what you are doing! You don't HAVE to make everything like it is now! You can be your OWN game company. Not like PS and XBox where everything is online.

I swear even Minecraft is doing a better job of keeping me playing.


Speech over.

"If Nintendo doesn't go back to about 2012"
Well I just found out Tomodachi Life was released in 2014 so I will expand on the sentence:


If Nintendo doesn't go back to about 2012 (while still keeping Tomodachi Life) they are gonna be pulled into the pit with all the game companies that died.



"...I liked new leaf..."
We all have our opinions. I don't like New Leaf. KEEBY64 doesn't like New Leaf. YoBoyDarrel liked New Leaf and doesn't like it anymore. You DO like New Leaf. And that's fine. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and nobody (at least on this site) is gonna hate you for it.

i don't really care for the modern main stream stuff. I loved ACWW and ACGC but that's been it. I tried getting into ACCF but the wifi wasn't getting along on our end so i jumped ship at some point about a year and a half later. I tried loving ACNL but i got bored after 2 months since it was to much like ACWW but w/ the fun stuff(actually having to EARN photos, hobby system, locking in animals, and turnip preservation) taken out.

I stuck with it till about May of last year but i stopped playing much afterwards.

"Agreed. I've stopped playing AC as a whole, much anymore. I only go on my game every 2-3 weeks. "
You play more then me. I only go on ACNL every few MONTHS and i stop after about 2 RW days.

I don't play Animal Crossing at all. Now I only play if theres a holiday or if I really have to. The other day I checked NL to see if I had a certain villager for someone, and didn't do anything while doing such. No bug catching, no talking to villagers, nothing.

Like I said before, I'm not a true fan. The only reason I got addicted to NL for the first few days was because I wanted to "finish" the game so I didn't have to play it again, then Club Tortimer was what got me addicted after that. Let me just say I played NL, and later, other AC games, for many long months.

I do not want to start an addiction like that ever again.

^^ And that's fine. No one will begrudge you your opinion.

I don't think NL is really that bad though. Perhaps I'm just saying this because my game I take very personally and it was the first town I ever had.

However, I have to agree about the cash grab thing. I really hope AC doesn't become that because it has a lot of good memories for many players.

Oh, and it took me a really long time to get Knox's photo. It's not like they give it to you right away. I actually got Savannah's pic in WW a lot faster than I got anyone in NL's pic.

And sure some stuff was taken out, but stuff was added in NL too.

I don't have too many complaints about NL actually but one is that I think the text in WW is much better and appeals to my sense of humor.

I don't really think NL added anything new.

Besides, the only reason I don't regret getting AC is because it led me to this site.

I bet most people on here don't like my opinion of hating Animal Crossing though.

Yesterday, I found two Google links right above each other, both of which I could answer with a single word each.


"What DON'T you like about New Leaf?" Me: Everything


"So, what's so awesome about New Leaf?" Me: Nothing




As for ACC, I don't why in the sake of Santos I go here anymore.

Would you say those same answers for the series as a whole?

As for me, I'm getting out of here as soon as possible once I find another site. Trust me, I can't find anyone on this site who cares about Fire Emblem, and I found barely anyone who likes Kirby.

I don't want to play Animal Crossing again for a while. If I do then... 1. It has to be a whole year since I quit AC. 2. I will never do "chores" like I did in WW and CF again, I will only do what I want. If theres a weed, I may or may not pick it. If theres a villager, I might not talk to them. I may not shop at Nook's either.

Its been only 2 weeks and it feels like its been way too long since I played ACCF.

To be honest, I feel like AC was best in the GCN, WW, and CF days. But even if it still was those days, I would have probably moved on to another series anyway.

I might play CF again but in a different way after a few weeks or months, because I don't think the reason why I hated AC was because the game was awful, it was because I was forcing myself to do the chores and whatnot. I think people should start playing AC again if the "chores" were the reason why they ended up quitting.

Well said. Most of the time I don't mind doing little chores but if I don't feel like it, I probably won't do it. And often I set chores for myself to be done over a period of time because it would be a huge pain to do it all at once. For instance, right now I'm clearing my museum rooms in order to make exhibits there, which I've never done. It's only been storage.

Goodbye Korrupt.

Now nearly everyone who I knew on this site from April-July has left ACC.

Now I've changed my mind again. I'm probably not going to play AC for a while unless its a holiday.

I guess I'll play ACCF in a few days because its going to be Halloween. I forgot Halloween even existed.

Just in general I question playing AC as a whole. Animal Crossing wasn't what made my childhood, Pokémon and Kirby were. I'm probably going to quit Animal Crossing forever and not even play on holidays once I get Fire Emblem: Awakening. Ever since I deleted Splatoon on my wii u, I've had nothing to play. I'm too bored to play Mario Maker except for trying to get amiibo costumes, so all I have been doing other than that is replaying Kirby's Block Ball on my 3DS.

I'm not even sure why AC was a success anyway. Maybe its because the first four games had effort put into them. I may even call WW a slight rehash of e+ since it has tons of things from that game.

So yeah, modern AC is becoming not just a cash grab, but a constantly rehashed game with less effort put into the games than the first four ( although WW and CF aren't as bad as NL, I have to admit ) . It may even be the reason why the wii u game hasn't been announced, because the team can't come up with ideas despite the fanbase giving them creative ideas often.

So yeah, I'm quitting Animal Crossing entirely, not just because of the games, but also because of this site, the fanbase, the development team, pretty much everything about it.
