As you possibly can most likely think about, a number of members of the Nintendo Life staff have fairly wild play instances registered on our Animal Crossing video games. Regardless of this, none of us may even come near the great quantity of effort displayed by this Animal Crossing superfan.
Jeff, referred to as jvgsjeff on-line, has been recurrently enjoying 2002 GameCube title Animal Crossing ever since he first loaded it up. That is 17 years of labor, dedication (and pleasure, we’re positive) all poured into that one vastly adored recreation. He hasn’t performed it each single day (thank goodness), as a substitute seeing his time with it fluctuate from each day performs to weekly, month-to-month, and again once more over time, however we won’t assist however be impressed by his dedication.
Talking to Kotaku, he stated, “My cities are like hyperlinks to the previous that I can revisit at any time. My GameCube city nonetheless has a lot of the similar villagers that it had 15 years in the past. The villagers are nearly like previous buddies, or in some circumstances, annoying neighbors that you simply’ve grown to love… kind of.”
It isn’t simply the GameCube version that Jeff’s loved over that point. He is additionally sunk loads of hours into the Wii’s Metropolis People, New Leaf on the 3DS, and the Digital Console model of DS’ Wild World. He has three,018 hours logged into the 3DS recreation – which Jeff guesses is much like his GameCube whole – and we won’t think about how a lot persistence should have gone into protecting on high of 4 totally different cities from 4 video games all on the similar time.
As for his ideas on the upcoming Swap recreation? He has some concepts for potential enhancements:
“New Leaf was a step in the suitable route however I’d wish to see issues go additional. One suggestion I had is to have a fossil-identifying class (or part-time job) that will allow you to finally study to establish fossils by yourself, as a substitute of getting to take all of them to Blathers. A separate device menu would even be nice. As for extra adventurous modifications, I’d like to have the ability to roam city in full 3D.”
If Animal Crossing does find yourself showing at E3 this 12 months, this is hoping it would not distract him an excessive amount of from that 17-year-old GameCube city. Wonderful stuff.
