the man who does nothing except exercise
the woman who does nothing except read books
the girl who does nothing except care about being a pop star
the boy who does nothing expect eat and sleep
the old man who does nothing except talk about being old
the woman who does nothing because snooty villagers are nice now
the smug personality is a combination of the 3 female personalities
the uchi personality is a combination of the 3 male personalities

personalities should be more subtle and unique and not gendered

talking about being a pop star or being a bookworm or being a meathead is very early 2000s

Yeah, I would like some more variety in villager personalities, and at minimum, pleeeease more dialogue options!! I don't like talking to Kiki and having her say something only to talk to Maple next and have her say the exact same thing, like 2 minutes later.

I do wish we had gotten more personalities like we got in NL, even if it was only 2 it would have been something. Also I think it's weird how the lazy villagers talk about how bugs talk to them lol, how does that relate to the lazy villager trait?? That's just bizarre

something I had NEVER realized over my years of animal crossing (maybe I knew and forgot idk lol) but that only male characters could be lazy, smug, jock, and cranky and that only female characters could be peppy, uchi, snooty, and normal. like, you would think they would start doing crossovers? why can't males be normal and peppy? and females can't be cranky and lazy? I dunno just felt weird when I learned that!

I agree.

I have thought about this before and what I think would be neat to see and would be fairly easy (creatively) for them to incorporate this would be based on how they decorate the interior of their house at the beginning (I don't know what would happen with the starter houses but I hate that part of the game anyway so I'll choose to ignore it lol). Or if some people would not like this because they can change their interiors, give them a favorite item that they won't move out ever and go off that.

I noticed a lack of personality changes and dialogue in NL (it was and still is my biggest NL complaint) but I didn't notice it as much. I don't know if that's because we at least got a new personality that I happen to be a huge fan of or if it's because that was ages ago and I expected more from NH. OR I suppose it could be that somehow NH happens to have even less dialogue than NL which would just be depressing.

Sorry, I went on a bit of a tangent there but the point is, I want to see some villager/islander creativity! We didn't even get a single new personality? I mean heck, we only got a handful or new characters when all they are, are skin changes because as you mentioned each personality is filled with copycats and copycats only. It's not acceptable to me. Sometimes my mind wanders and I think about how great NH might be if a majority of design time was replaced with critter improvements time but that's just a 'me' thing based on others' comments so I digress...

Just to add in case anyone goes the DLC route - I expect it base game; end of story.

I'm pretty open to DLC, but I would agree with you forgottenpixel any villager personality upgrades should 100% be base game. I kind of feel like they're less likely to do villager upgrades though compared to other options for new content. It does seem crazy that the conversations feel so stale when I know I read that apparently the script for New Horizons is some crazy length, though I can't find the source on that now.

I really don't care about gendering isues, but I definitely think a whole bunch of new personalities could be added to the game and it wouldn't matter which genders got them.

I don't mind the current Personalities, but i'm Ditto with having brand new Personality opportunities to have. Geeky, Quiet, Mysterious, Noble...Anything new would be a nice addition!

I think you have a better chance of them adding the villagers blood types in game than changing the personalities to any strong degree.
I'm also fine with them being "gendered".

In my ideal AC game, the villagers would be procedurally generated- both looks and personality.

I even made a thread about how it'd potentially work.

A huge list of potential personality traits, likes, dislikes, etc. could be combined to form unique villagers.

As for dialogue... that's a bit trickier. They'd just need to keep adding more via updates, I'd think.

"I know I read that apparently the script for New Horizons is some crazy length, though I can't find the source on that now."
You know? It's so interesting you say that because even though I managed to avoid most spoilers for NH I swear (and until you brought it up thought I made it up lol) I also read an article years ago at this point all about how much dialogue was going to be in the game and how the translators had never worked so hard - or something similar to that effect. I was super excited to hear that and didn't expect to have any issues with NH in that aspect. I too went to find it after being shocked at the repetitive nature of the dialogue after playing a week or so and couldn't find anything. I wonder if for whatever reason they cut tons of work already done because it sounded like it had already been done - not something they had left to do. Odd.

I too unfortunately don't see any major developments coming via DLC in terms of day-to-day dialogue improvement. I think there's a smidge of hope for a new personality. I think there's a good chance that they'll add new skins.

Sphithix:

I agree. If we analyze the changes from base game to now it's clear that's not a direction they're prepared to go. When they like something in this series it's not going to be changed. It took ages to remove grass wear and that was something I'd say 95% of players agreed they didn't like. If it's something a minority would like to see then forget it. It's definitely a ride or die mentality I see most strongly with this series. Sometimes this works for them (NL; NH) and sometimes (City Folk) it doesn't.

It's not just a ride or die thing, it's a deep culturally Japan thing. Reason I brought up blood type is because it's a big anime trope that blood type correlates to personality. It's part of their cultural beliefs that personality falls into specific archetypes.

https://www.tofugu.com/japan/japanese-blood-type/

You're better off hoping for a Tem Tem situation in which another company comes in and makes a competing game rather than expecting an entire culture to bend over to your demands because you don't like the villager who lifts weights sometimes. It's nice that they localize the game for a western audeince but at the end of the day this is a japanese game catering mainly to a japanese audeince.

Sort of agree. I don't mind it being there, in fact a bonus is they actually talk about their dreams related to personalities. I remember reading about Peppy always being a popstar wannabe but I don't recall them ever really saying it in game except maybe once or twice when they move in. But the downside to the new thing is that now Bonbon & Wendy are saying the same thing, like too identical for my taste.
It's funny how it didn't feel like speech was repeating this much in NL until a couple months into the game...

Update? Yeah they could update it, at least a little more diverse or add at least 1-2 new types per gender. Or maybe even a genderless personality? One where both male and female animals are included in the list. I always thought it was weird that "Normal" is for females only, because Normal just is what it sounds like. It's normal and a touch boring and has always been my least favorite type. A couple cool villagers were lost to that type. Poor Nana.....

Sphithix:

Hmm...I get what you're saying and I agree. However I think that's true for a lot (or even most) of the games that come out of Japan and Japanese culture. I still just don't notice it as much in other series or games in general hence my feeling like it appears to be 'ride or die'.

But like you said wishing for change like this in this series is just wishful thinking apparently. I still enjoy discussing the possibilities but I don't hold my breath either.

tujunga:


As a cranky and sometimes lazy female I concur!



Like you said I have no problem with say Peppy being obsessed with being a pop star. I think it's adorable when they have slight one track minds (the superheroes come to mind as well). It's just way too cookie cutter and for some reason glaringly obvious in NH.

I think with a lot of the personalities they tried to balance it between genders, but it's still not the same. For example snoots and grumps and peps and jocks.
