Animal Crossing: New Leaf

 

By KAYLA BOHN

“All right! College has started and now it’s time to have fun! Oh shoot, I also have to pay debt. Dang it!” Paying debt is not fun, or at least not in real life. However, there is a game in which you have to pay debt in order to have a nice house in a life simulation game called Animal Crossing: New Leaf.  In this game, you are a human living in a village with anthropomorphic villagers (animal like humans).  In this life simulator game, you have the freedom to do whatever you want. You can fish, fossil hunt, catch bugs, buy clothes, and buy furniture for your new house (that you have to pay debt for).  Why is this game so popular?  Let us go back to the first game of the series.

While all of these values seem to fall under the phrase of “being a Boy Scout.” However these values are what we should be putting on a pedestal.
