In Animal Crossing City Folk.

It's been over a year since I started playing this game. Since then I have played it every day up to now. I haven't checked the lastest figures but a couple of weeks ago I was logged in at over 355 hrs.

So here I am a year later, I've been through all 4 seasons, I've seen the Gracie collections come and go, the holidays, the festivals. I've filled most of the museum with fish and bugs. I have four characters in the game and have fully upgraded four seperate houses. Soon I will own 3 seaons complete sets of Gracie furniture. With only the Princess Spring set to buy (seriously who wants that?)

All I have to do is to get this UFO MOFO who has showed up once over the period of an entire year and to get my fountain and lighthouse.

I have about 1 million 600'000 bells in the bank so I could get both quite easily.

That's it. Other than the occasional DLC object from Nintendo there is not much I haven't seen.

I don't have a japanese friend so I can't see the japanese specific holidays.

And no one else here has lasted as long as me, in short all my buddies have deserted me online. I have no other towns to visit. It used to be crazy, with Steel, Bugs, Travo, Raven, even Vader, Steel's wife and K_Smoove, Angry Monkey.

Now it's ghost town.

I seem to be logging on to water the flowers it seems and little else. On the one hand I can't bear trashing my town and giving it up, on the other there is not much reason to continue playing anymore.

So to ebay? Or not to ebay? And what do I do with all my stuff? I have SO much stuff that it would be impossible to post to people. I may just lay out all the good stuff all over town and invite people over to pick it all up in a giveaway day.

But I'm undecided. Damnit.

Why sell it? You'll get next to nothing for it now. Just stop playing, and put the game on the shelf for a while. Six months or a year from now, you might want to revisit your town. Believe me, it's pretty neat to go back after a year, and see all the weeds and having the animals freak out when they see you again. LOL I did that with the Gamecube version, and will do so again with ACWW just as soon as I can get another DS. You've worked hard on your town, I'd keep it if I were you.

I dont want to see weeds, I will just want to pick them all up. And I've missed weeks/months playing as my other characters and seen animals reactions.

And you were so close to 500 hours too! Sad

It's the down side of games like Ac and Nintendogs.  In the end it is hard to walk away.  I left my past AC towns just fall into disrepair.  I went back once, years later and spent about 20 minuted killing roaches and weeds, it was kind of like a Fallout 3 type setting.

I wouldn't mind leaving the game for a while but I cant stand the thought of all my special cross breed flowers dying. I can only put so many into the house for storage.

Just put those flowers in letters, and store them at the Town Hall's post office.

355 hours? GASP

That was the last time I checked, might be over 360 hrs now. You never know Nintendo could trash half/ALL my save data when repairing my GPU problem so it might be over no matter what. Sad

When's the next Animal Crossing game coming?

Not for ages. I'm guessing Wii 2.
