    1. >>>Animal Crossing Home designer is a newer game so obviously it will do far better>>>

  1. What a huge letdown when I figured out that the latest 3DS Animal Crossing game was going to be a crappy home designer game.

    But it seems that Japanese people got hyped.

    They are killing the industry, mostly Nintendo, which just caters to casuals nowadays. I’m afraid the real gaming days are officially over.

  2. Wow! Nintendo DESTROYED EVERYONE in sales! And no I’m not a Nintendo fanboy, I think all systems are good for different types of games. But Nintendo is my favorite, followed fairly closely by Playstation, then I don’t really like Xbox very much (but hey you can like whatever you want.)
