      @Louisa Greer Ngl, hitting on the villagers is 60% of the appeal in Stardew xD

    My best female friend got a switch for a good price. She never played video games in her life before. It's funny to see what she likes and how she plays. I tought, which game could she like? So i bought her animal crossing for her birthday and she adores it. She is litteraly obsessed with it

    As much as I enjoy this game- I think part of the appeal is that it takes so long to do things-it slows you down so it’s relaxing. It’s not fast paced or stressful

    Yea I've always hated this game, even when I was a little kid and played the GameCube one. I remember renting it from Blockbuster and being like what the actual f is this crap lol. And I was like 10 at the most. It was, by FAR, the single most boring thing I'd ever played, and I used to play those crappy licensed Tiger electric games like Aladdin and Lion King.

    after over 50 years of never playing a videogame, and spending almost 30 complaining about how much my father and I play them my mother picked up Animal Crossing, and she visits her island every day and strong arms us to check turnip prices. It's wonderful.

    Reminds me of Dunkey’s comment “The difference with Animal Crossing is that if I talk shit about it, Leah would shoot me. ... I give it a 4 -what?? -a 5, outta 5” 🤣

    I tried playing ACNH for a couple of hours. Wasn't for me. I found the lack of cartoon violence disturbing. Don't get me wrong. I love the graphics and how cute it all looks. But I would rather play Dragon Quest cuz like Ron Swanson would put it, "It's like (ACNH) but I still get to kill something."

    The closest I've come to playing Animal Crossing was I watched my best friend play some version on the GameCube and he repeatedly hit a tree with a shovel until he was chased and attacked by a swarm of angry bees.

    Ok, genuine request here. Can someone who likes animal crossing explain the allure to me? My fiance loves it, my sister loves it and both of them had roundabout the same reaction as Shelby during that trailer: *sharp inhale* "A LADDER?" and i just don't get it. I enjoyed Stardew Valley and Harvest moon for what they were, they are nowhere near my favorite games list but they were fun little farming and township simulators and i can see why some players like and love those games. I also tried Animal Crossing and wanted to shoot myself. I played for a week and the point of the game seems to be to inconvinience you at any turn while also being obnoxiously cutesy about it. All while celebrating features, such as a Ladder, the other games of it's type have had for a decade or longer like they reinvented the wheel whilst standing next to a car. I'm not trying to dump on it, if you enjoy a game go and enjoy it! You do you. But to me it plays lile Harvest Moon / Stardew Valles on tranquilizers minus the farming. So it boils down to a very tedious and artificially slowed down collectable grind. I don't get it. But I want to. Aside from "modern realistic" shooters (CoD, BF etc) this is the one game where I just don't understand the allure. So if some kind soul would have mercy on me and try to explain the allure of it, I'll gladly listen.

  • HellsDementedSong

    It’s true. Animal crossing is not really the kind of game you can backseat game with considering it is really boring to watch. Really fun to play but not so much fun to just watch. I’m just grateful my boyfriend isn’t trying to tell me how to play this game “right” since I’m an animal crossing expert.😁

    I don’t know why but there’s something deeply, VISCERALLY funny about that clip of tiger king with “six year olds” superimposed over it that I keep coming back to even seven months later.

  • mdredheadguy1979

    Wait, Shelby paid Matt to get off her island and not touch anything, then she comes over to his island and does the very thing he was asked not too, and she calls HIM a grouchy old man? 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ Oh well, at least they managed to weather the storm as a couple. Right?

    Let's all give a round of applause to Shelby for the amazing voice work she dedicates to this channel. Matt is fine, don't take me wrong, but it's an entirely different experience to have Shelby on. Great example of how to create amazing content playing to people's strengths. (Matt's editing is godlike, btw. Just want to put it out there not to give the impression I'm dissing the guy. It's just that Shelby keeps saying that Matt does everything, but this video definitively proved that's not true :D).
