So, the only two AC games i can feasibly emulate are Population Growing and Wild World. City folk has either disappeared off the face of the internet, or was never there in the first place, and Citra doesn't run exactly perfectly on my computer, despite being above average in everything but the Graphics card, and New Leaf doesn't even run perfectly in it. So the question is, which do i play; Population Growing or Wild World?

How much content is there in Wild World in comparison to Population Growing, and is it worth the lower framerate and resolution? I don't know if there's any way to increase the resolution or Framerate in Desmume, much less HOW to do it if there is a way. Is the lower framerate and resolution worth the slightly better models and actual hair? How much character-unique dialogue is there in both games? How many people say the same thing in Population Growing in comparison to Wild World? When someone says the same thing as another, it really breaks the immersion of the game. What major features were added in Wild World, and do they add anything significant to the game?

That's all i have to ask for the moment, but if there's anything else i should know, go ahead and tell me.

it depends on what matters to you.

in PG you can't take off your hat or change your hair, you get a smaller house (3 rooms), and there isn't much to do as far as customization, but PG is by far the most unique AC game with the weird camera angle, quirky music and events that never returned in future releases. also the animals can be incredibly rude in this game. I personally think the PG dialogue is the best of any AC game, though WW is a close second with slightly less rude animals that are still not nearly as sugar sweet as they are in newer games. storage in this game is terrible, each closet only holds three items, so not the best if you like to keep all your rare stuff. The towns in PG are also much more interesting with weird cliffs and ramps all over the place, and the most villagers able to live in town of any game. WW on the other hand is completely flat and allows the least villagers at a time.

WW is where a lot of AC staples were established, so it's more similar to the other games. the graphics are better than PG -- if super pixel-y (but the pixels make it so you can design outfits that sparkle if you put white dots all over them. one of my favourite things to do as a kid). there's more stuff to collect and your house can get much bigger (5 rooms + an attic), but unfortunately the house is shared between all 4 players. there are no real life holidays in WW, just made up ones. they did this to make localization easier, but it wasn't well received so they want back to real life holidays in future games.

so overall I'd say if you care about customization and collecting, WW is better. if you care about villager interactions, atmosphere and uniqueness, PG is better.

Gotcha. Unless i can find a way to up the framerate in Wild World, i'll probably stick with PG.

Wild World's framerate is bad on real hardware, too.

^the frame rate would really dip if you had a lot of trees. I loved planting an excessive number of trees as a kid (still do) and there were times it would get so bad I was worried it'd crash on me.

"Wild World's framerate is bad on real hardware, too. "
I figured. It's not the amount of framerate drops for me, it's the fact it runs at, what, 20fps by default? 15? idek...
