Hey everyone!

I love ACNH. This seems to be a bit of an unpopular opinion, but I really do! I play it everyday and logged about 960 hours thus far - my mom has 1,200 hours.

So I wanted to ask... what do you like to do when you play?

Personally, I like changing my outfits, redesigning parts of the island, and giving gifts to villagers. I also collect seashells and shake trees. It's also been incredibly fun exploring the Custom Designs Portal.

Currently, I'm only writing letters to my mom in the game, but if anyone would like to be "penpals" I would absolutely love that.

I can easily play 2 hours a day if I let the time pass me. Just curious what the ACC community enjoys in ACNH! Also, feel free to connect with me on ACC/Instagram if you'd like to chat, I'm always eager to make new friends.

Hiya! I do the normal day to day routine stuff.. get my nook mile points.. go to nooks.. go to ables.. get some rock hitting in. Deciding on my mood I try to catch some bugs and fish to work towards those achievements.. I'm pretty close to completely both. I've also got some fish to catch to complete my museum so I'll be doing that soon. Talking with my villagers of course.

I play on average around 30 minutes a day.

I'd love to be a pen pal!

my daily routine used to be to give gifts to all the animals I haven't gotten pictures from yet, check the shops for items I don't have catalogued and pick up all the sticks and fossils

lately though I've been ignoring all that and I've made it a goal to get pictures of all the facial expressions of every villager on harv's island while also documenting other interesting details like what colour their paw pads are (Here if you wanna see)

then I'm planning on starting up a new town once I finish up with that. probably halloween themed

My play style has chilled out a lot ever since I've progressed through the game, but usually I just do chores around my island such as picking up any weeds, talking to all my villagers, putting money in the bank if necessary (if I get 100k or more I put half in the bank), and visit the able sister's shop. Before I paid off my loan, I did the same except I'd pick up every fish, bug, and sea creature I possibly could to make as much money as possible. Now though, I really only care to finish the museum and get all the pictures of my villagers since I've finished a lot of what I need to do (and it doesn't help I'm feeling MASSIVE burnout)
In total, I think I have around 555 hours in the game

Amylase - Sounds like we do similar things! I still have a number of achievements I've gotta hit, as well as fish and seafood to catch. Some of the sea creatures are tough to catch while diving!


Chiyoko - Yup I'm always giving gifts. I usually prepare the gifts I want to give the night before. Also, I'm loving those pictures you took (especially Coco's). It's so cute noticing the tiny details of our villagers. I hope you will continue taking pictures, I'd love to see more.


Carson - I found that getting villagers' pictures is pretty tedious in this AC. I'm still set on getting as many as I can though. BTW, I can't believe you have over 300 phones LOL! What do you do with them? I gotta know.


** Thanks everyone for responding! Hope more people respond as well. I'm still interested and love to chat
*** Another question: how do you think ACNH compares to past AC games? Ex. ACNL, WW, or Gamecube?

justblogging same, for a while I had gift wrapped gifts in colour-coded wrapping paper outside every villager's house, with each one mostly containing clothing I think they'd look cute in or tools that match them better than the default ones I kinda ran out of things to give though so I just started wrapping cherries that I bought at the shop

also that blog runs on a queue that posts 3-4 villagers a day and I'm just over halfway done getting pictures of every villager. I get pics of 25 villagers at a time and shove them into the queue, so I just need 9 more days off to finish

as for how NH compares to the other games, honestly I'd rank NH #2. NH is by far the most disappointing game imo, but that's only because it came after NL which was incredible. when I compare NH to any game other than NL, it's no contest to me that NH is better.

my personal ranking would be NL > NH > GC/WW > CF

NL had the best furniture selection by far which is really what puts it at the top for me. main street is a big plus too, but honestly if NH ever gets a furniture update that puts it on par with NL, it'll be a much harder choice for me. in NL the public works had weird limitations, the villager housing situation was awful and the dialogue was just terrible!!! people rag on NH's dialogue, but in NL the villagers were constantly telling me how to look at the sky or shake fruit out of trees. it's true NH repeats a lot of the same dialogue for some reason and I'm not sure why they do that bc NH has some genuinely really good dialogue. it's just that the good funny stuff doesn't come up nearly as often as the same phrases you've heard every single day you've played

GC & WW are both good games for different reasons so hard to choose, but as someone who mainly likes decorating I have to put them lower than NH and NL

CF was just WW but worse. there were some improvements, but CF had BY FAR the worst dialogue in the series and the city kinda sucked, and those things put it below WW for me.

justblogging Oh no I actually do This is from april so I actually have more than what is pictured, but here's a general idea I mostly just have them to collect, but I do repair the ones that are broken and/or can be actually useful, at least 95% of them work so technically I have hundreds of backup phones at my disposal

I'm sorry I don't know how to link usernames so I'll just type them instead!



Chiyoko - That's exactly what I do. I always leave stuff outside of villager houses. My mom and I share an island and she complains about that lol.

I also have to agree with your ranking. It's not that I didn't like CF, but it was wayyy too similar to WW in my opinion. Still had fun playing it on the Wii. One thing I loathed about NL and CF was the way the grass would wear away when you walked somewhere too much -_- Still, NL is superb.

I'm excited to see more of your villager pics, keep them comin!!



Carson - I've never met anyone with this kind of collection so I'm especially intrigued!! As for myself, I just collect cute Japanese erasers

Personally I am still having fun.  I am doing daily things.  On nights I don't work (I work 3rd shift) I try to see if I can get wishing stars.  I probably should figure out which bugs & fish I need to finish that up, but I am just enjoying the journey.

Drew - Agreed, I have lots of fun playing daily. It's so fun getting the wishing stars! I'd like a future update that added more furniture into the game at some point. I've found myself limited in terms of this game's furniture sets.

I restarted for the billionth time. I play ACNH every day, but for me the most fun is the beginnings of the game.

Carole - I agree, the beginning of the game was incredibly fun. It was fulfilling to watch the progression of the island as it was built. I've never restarted though, and my mom would absolutely hate if I did! We share the same island.

Deana - Wow! That's incredible that you have 9 islands! Do you have a favorite island of yours? How do you like to decorate them?

**Thank you both for replying! It's great hearing from everyone.

Thankyou My Favorite is Wildflower I guess because it is the newest one Of course by the time you design 9 towns you know how to use your Town tools and where things should go to be able to play the town easier Each town has different designs and houses are different I have 5 Northern and 4 Southern So I never get bored Since after I make the snowman can go on Vacation Also I'm sure Ill be getting more switchs  Due to the new 1 coming out I really do love designing them Hope you all visit them in your dreams hugs

Just daily routine stuff, day in and day out.
Fossils, weeds, glowing spot, DIYs. Sell stuff, see villagers, work on some gardening projects.

To make things more interesting, I've been doing different outfits every day, and I remind myself it's the end of the day when I put away the day's earnings, repaint my tools and change my clothes.
Try to maintain a sense of normalcy in light of current events.

In a couple of months, I need to work on a sales pitch regarding my pumpkins, for the sake of other players.

Hi Charlotte!

I also like to change my outfits daily. Or, I pick one clothing item or accessory that I don't particularly like and try to style a super cute outfit with it.

I'm ready for pumpkin season as well!! Wish we could grow other crops and do light farming, similar to Harvest Moon.

I've been going through a burnout but I'm back for a bit.
I do the usual dailies (check mailbox, message in a bottle, talk to villagers etc.)
What helped me was that I finally made a mini theme for my character which helped me to start terraforming and play around with the empty spaces in my town to make it flow together.
Terraforming kind of sucks because I keep changing my mind so I keep destroying what I build but it's all slowly coming together!
