I don't know how I'd rank them exactly but City Folk is my absolute favorite AC game soundtrack-wise. New Leaf was a bit lackluster when compared to the other games due to the different style of music, but there were a few tracks from it that I thought were really nice in their own right.

All of the games were good for what they were except I feel the rainy/snowy songs in New Leaf were way too empty. I can't decide whether GC or WW/CF was better because both are great. I feel like both of them have weak points and strong points. But New Leaf, so far, is my least favorite of the three. Not that it's bad...just not quite as strong as the others.

I'm not sure a lot of people would agree with my opinion but I cannot stand the New Leaf music played in the background. In all honesty, I much prefer the City Folk as I find that it's more uplifting, however it may also be because I've played this game far longer than New Leaf so I'm perhaps more accustomed to the sound of the music. Although it's been three years since New Leaf came out I still find it new, if that makes sense? I love the music played on Christmas Eve though, there are definitely no doubts about that! I'm pleased that Nintendo continued to use it in New Leaf, for all we know they could have changed it!
CF's my favourite, then NL. I hope they make the music in future games better, although I'll probably never rate anything higher than CF now because I guess it was my childhood and I had so many wifi memories on there and stuff.
1. WW/CF overall as my #1. Most tracks were perfect. 2. Gamecube 3. New Leaf
The original has more tracks I like than New Leaf, but not to say all of them are bad. Some of morning and evening tracks are great. Personally 8pm is my favorite. That one stood out to the rest of them.
1. Animal Crossing [GC] -57 points 2. Wild World/City Folk 45 points 3. New Leaf- 35 points
The Gamecube version's hourly tunes just stand out a lot more to me. The tunes are very catch, the instrument choices are great, and most of the tunes fit the time of the day pretty well. It also honestly bring back a lot of memories and feelings for me. It stands above the others for these reasons, though the others do have some great tunes.
If anyone is curious also, out of each game, 4 PM is my fav for the Gamecube, 3 AM if my fav for Wild World/City Folk, and 8 AM is my fav for New Leaf.
Do you have any idea how that made me feel inside?
Furious! Outraged! FABULOUUUSSSS!!!!
but for the snow themes (which I keep in a playlist and listen to every year around christmas time), NL is by far my favourite. I love how echo-y and hollow it sounds because it reminds me of real life when the snow is already up to your knees and still coming down and everything is quiet except for faint echos of things far away. GC is my least favourite for snow themes because some don't even change
