        Some of the most famous Tomas members are George Washington, Neil Armstrong, and Willam Clark

  2. its higher than 18% because nintendo is not accounting for the high number of 3DS Systems that are broken or upgraded or homes that have multiple users that share games. I have 3 right now in my home and we share usage of games

  3. Over 7 million suckers. What an overrated franchise. I especially hate the half-assed art style of the characters.

    Rune Factory 4 is a better simulation game by far.

    • That’s your opinion. The “7 Million” people aren’t suckers. That’s just what they like. You like Rune Factory? good for you.

    • Lol! You’re funny, man. Let’s see you try to make a game like Animal Crossing. And ACNL sold far more than that game. Good or not, that’s just your opinion.

  5. Only 18% of 3DS owners bought this? Wow! This is definitely one of my favorite 3DS games (and series) I own. And that’s coming from a 36 year-old.

    Although lately I’ve been real burned out on it and haven’t played in a while.

  6. Haha, I bought 3 copies. 2 for me and one for my nephew. I also got the ACNL 3DS XL.
    Pretty relaxing game. Really good for someone with generalized anxiety disorder, like me.

  7. I am one of the 18%. Best Animal Crossing game – exceptionally well made in every regard. I’m at the stage where I go through phases of playing it now, but there is still an awful lot to do.

  8. I only wish this game had the playable NES games like the very first Animal Crossing game. That’s the only thing that’s missing that would have made it even BETTER.

  9. http://www.change.org/petitions/nintendo-adding-online-multiplayer-and-voice-chat-to-virtual-console-games

    Here’s why it’s important:

    Have you ever imagined playing an old classic that you loved and wanted it to be online to show off your skills or even play with friends and family that live to far away to play the game with them. Imagine Super Mario World with online and voice chat, Mario kart with online and voice chat or even super smash bros! from N64 with online multiplayer and voice chat the list can go on and on this can be something that I know will be a hit! We together can make this happen if we show nintendo that we really want this! This would be amazing!

  10. The only reason this isn’t higher is because presumably it doesn’t take into account people who have bought multiple 3DS’s (but only one copy of Animal Crossing)
