Before you guys sperg out, this is a port of a N64 game, it's retro.
Let's discuss favorite villagers, KK Slider tunes, and events.

Did you miss the memo? We're pretending things from 2006 are "retro" now.

>> No.6878967

The first game feels way more fun than the later ones. Even the fans agree that the later games have more content but the first game did something the others didn't capture. I really want to play the N64 version to. The graphics look way comfier for some reason.

kek most of the old posters are people who haven't been on in a month to see the state of this board.

>> No.6879071

How is the N64 version?

>> No.6879137

the n64 game is basically the same thing, the main reason it moved to gamecube was simply because the japanese game was so late in the n64's lifespan that by the time an english version was made, it wouldn't have made sense to release it on a finished platform, so it was pushed onto the new console, with some minor changes

I only played the original and the DS one, but what you posted is the general consensus.
From what I understand in the original the villagers had way more personality. The dickish villagers were way angrier, the shy ones were shyer, the nice ones were kinda superficial. There was a lot of weird random events in the original game that were toned down in weirdness in later games. It was just made a lot safer.
New Leaf has the most quality content though, and Isabelle who in almost every single fanart I've seen is depicted as being really pear shaped. A heavily underrated body type.

Anon, I have bad news for you. If modern western society is going to trigger you (which, honestly, I wouldn't blame you), then it's not just Animal Crossing you have to avoid, it's pretty much all video games, period.
Just ignore modern westerners. Animal Crossing is a japanese series anyway, who cares what modern westerner users do?

>> No.6882539

Its just Anglo Saxons and especially Northern European Diaspora has never had this happen to them before. All the LGBT things have been in Asia and in certain parts of Europe since 1970's. I have a feeling things will begin to level out and go back to being less crazy in 5 years or less.
Truth be told Western Society is just going through 500 years worth of issues in 7 years. Would not surprise me if it gets back to normal in a few years. And I do agree with you. There comes a point when you have to let societal things go and stop being an Autìst about things. Enjoy life and having gaming stop letting other people's views get you angry.

6th gen isn't exclusively a /v/ermins topic, but it does attract a lot of /v/ermin who will shit up threads because they need to absolutely assert any chance they get that the game they played is the best in the series without actually playing the other ones. Believe it or not I actually like some 6th gen and non-retro games, but absolutely despise /v/ and the retards who go there, simply because their post quality and mental capacity are abysmal.

The atmosphere, the music and also the villagers' personalities are all more interesting than in the sequels.
I honestly came into this series pretty late, as I was a teenager when this came out so obviously I ignored it. This is probably the only game I envy zoomers about, it's the perfect childhood nostalgia game.

Yeah, you're right about it being perfect for childhood nostalgia. It's very atmospheric and the music invokes nostalgia, even for those who never played it as a kid, from what I've seen/heard.
You're also spot-on about the villagers' personalities being a lot more interesting. Not retro, but Wild World also had some pretty great dialogue.

>> No.6887583

>It's very atmospheric and the music invokes nostalgia, even for those who never played it as a kid, from what I've seen/heard.
Can confirm. Played it as an adult. Expected to laugh it off as a boring The Sims-like kiddy game, but got kinda hooked. It sort of plays like an RPG, but if instead of playing a hero who has to fight monsters, you play a regular villager and do villager stuff. It's pure comfy. And yes, it evokes nostalgia, it's really weird how a game made in the 2000s can produce something like that.

Understandable. The original seems pretty basic compared to the sequels, but in turn it has the best villager dialogues, best music, and IMO best "feel" in terms of atmosphere. It really feels like a forest where weird animals live. The sequels seem less forest-y, I don't know if it's just me, but I felt that.
Oh yeah also, the NES games.

I'm honestly happy to see this franchise took off.
I thought it'd be too weird/japanese-y for western audiences, who aren't very keen on cutesy styles, but it worked.

Same, I think GC is a bit like an atari 2600 game in that you kind of just go back to it as a novelty. I'd still play it for a week or so but I don't think it's the kind of game I can really "set up shop" in and just play daily for months anymore.

Not really certain if I'll ever really go back to NH though. All the control you get in that game just feels like too much of a good thing. Like you don't really feel like a part of the neighborhood anymore when you can just carve up the earth however which way you want, you can just instantly transplant trees and plants, you can relocate buildings on a whim, and villagers are only allowed to leave when you kick them when you want. This is the freedom people have been asking for for years but now that we have it it just seems to me like you kind of do need some limitations and resistance to your customization options in a neighborhood simulator.

I think NL got closer to that sweet spot of creative freedom while still having to coexist with your neighbors and work around various limitations, even if some of them are bullshit. If you could place furniture outside in NL it would be the perfect game.

Because karma is real and y'all are colonialist pigs, seriously. For every action there is a reaction. "The jews" and their psyops whether or not that's even real, is the reaction to white colonialism. Why do you think white suicide rates are higher than black suicide rates?

Even if you kill every single jew today, a WORSE monster will emerge. The more extreme YOU are the, more extreme your opposite will always be.

The Darkness you fear is always within yourself, brochacho. The harder you fight, the faster you sink in its quicksand.

Focus on love, learn to accept things, and your life will improve. It's fine not to like things, but hating things only feeds them with energy. Always focus on what REALLY matters in your life.

The thing is, not all whites are brits. Brits are just one small section of white people. You can't write off an entire race just because 1 tiny inbred sub-section of it was tyrant.
On the other hand, you know how americans have the so-called "white guilt" due to slavery and such, right? Well, it's a bit harsh to actually delve into historical facts, because you will see some things you will NOT like, but, consider the following:
-Black slaves were already slaves in Africa. They were enslaved by other blacks.
-Some of these slaves were sold, and some of them ended up in American farms
-Americans weren't even the ones who traveled to Africa (and no, Amazon did not exist back then, you had to go to the place physically to buy something). There was a middle-man who went to Africa, negotiated with the black tribe chiefs, and bought the slaves.
-That middle man who did the transaction, bought the slaves from black chiefs, and sold them to american farmers, were in fact jewish merchants.
Humanity is so fucked up that learning about history just makes you wish you didn't read it. It was just simpler to think in more standard "whites evil, blacks good" frames. Everything is a lot more grey and blurred than we think.

When I learned about how black slaves were actually bought and sold it shocked me a bit.

Oh, reality is so, so different from what I was told to believe as a kid.

I actually really enjoy how bare bones the gc one is. In the months before nh came out I decided to start a new game. Everything taking more time and effort adds to the experience imo. Its a real effort to get nice furniture and trees where you want them, it makes the reward feel much better. I dont think its fair to compare the games as new horizons is a much faster game which feels extremely different, almost overwhelming. The slow pace of the original makes it a nice game to come back to whereas nh felt like completing a checklist of chores after a few weeks of playing it
