I was 6 years old, I got City Folk around launch time.

I don't have many memories of my town as much as I have snapshots in my brain. I remember my best friends were Boomer, Daisy, and Drake, and that I played hide-and-seek with them once. I remember Drake got sick and I was super young obviously so I was scared he was going to die or something. I also remember when Mr. Resetti did that fake-out where he pretends to delete your save data. That scared me really bad.

I also remember when Daisy moved out suddenly. I still had Boomer and Drake but I started playing less and less after that, and eventually stopped entirely. I got New Leaf in 2014, however.

man looking up the release dates of when the games came out, all of these events happened a lot closer together than I thought they did time really does move slower when you're a kid

I thought I was in grade 4 when I first played AC, but WW came out in 2005 so I had to have been in grade 5. my friend let me play on her DS for a bit and I really liked it. shortly after my dad got me and my sister a gamecube and when we went out to buy games for it, I recognized animal crossing and got it. probably about a year or so later I got a DS and WW was one of the first games I got. city folk was the first video game ever where I knew about the release date ahead of time so I asked for it for Christmas that year.

Agreed. My 5th grade year was 2012-2013, so the 2012 election happened when I was 10.

Not mentioning it to make things political, but seriously the length of time between the 2012 and 2016 elections compared to 2016 to now is insane to me. 2012-2016 was so slow but I feel like November 2016 was yesterday.

I played WW when I was about 7! I wasn't really good at it, but my mom would stay up & play with me so we could catch the huge stag beetles on the palm trees. My best friends in the game were Lucy & Pierce.

I first played it on my 12th birthday, although I had a friend who had it 2 years before that (age 10).

"man looking up the release dates of when the games came out, all of these events happened a lot closer together than I thought they did time really does move slower when you're a kid"
I get that exact same feeling! Like when I look back at how close certain video game release dates were, or how often boy bands released albums xD like one right after the other! But as a kid, it seemed like an eternity.

I'm pretty sure that I was about 7 when I got City Folk as a Christmas gift when it was just released. It was the first game I had for my Wii and I remember spending hours on it every day.

10 years old, back in 2012. In fact, yesterday marked the 7th year since I first started playing! Wild World was my first game, but I mainly got it because I was waiting for Population Growing to come in the mail.

I think I was about 8 when I got my GameCube and, soon after, Animal Crossing.

We rented it from Blockbuster (yep that still existed back then) to keep me occupied over the summer and I loved it so much we kept renting it over and over until my family just bought it for me.

I was 8 years old when I played Animal Crossing Wild World for the first time.

This was only a few years after its release date! My friend owned a copy of the game, but she left it in my DS, only to never get it back.

She forgot about the game for a while, so I would play it by myself in secret, then I got totally addicted, didn't wanna give it back.

A few months later, all of my other friends would question me about it, and I couldn't stand the guilt, so I chucked the poor Wild World cartridge in the trash. My parents ended up buying me a new game around a month later. The rationale of young me was certainly questionable, haha.

I got the gamecube version around 2002-2003.
I was nine. I remember sitting in a chair in my sister's room (she had the PS2 in her room too at the time) and just playing it when she was out at her friend's house.

I felt SO shocked that I could feed my character apples, I remember eating them all! I loved the dump too.
I remember when WW came out, the hype was real, you could have HAIR! Nintendo had a flash game with Halloween related things at the time - which - was awful at the time, but I was like 12 or so and I played a lot of it on my dial-up!
