Default Convince me to buy this game...

I KNOW, another one of THOSE threads .

Some background.
I don't play my 3DS enough, which is why I need a game that doesn't end.

The problem I'm struggling with is, just WHAT can you do in this game?
I take a 20 minute bus ride two times a day (to and from work) that I could use on a game like this.

One thing I'm worried about is that I missed all these events and there will be no way for me to get all in-game items.

since you're worried about some items you may have missed
which you might actually use in playing AC
why not just get some other games instead?

Watch some trailers, that tells you pretty much everything you need to know. Twenty minutes would be just right to pull some weeds, plant flowers, catch bugs, talk to people, etc. As for being worried about not getting all in-game items, that would take an extremely long time to get every item, in fact, it's pretty much impossible.

There is nothing that you missed that is game-breaking at all.

You can still get most of those special items some other way.

Like the BEST BUY items that I got last year and that were suppose to be exclusive to that store, Nintendo gave them away through the post office later that year.

You can also get them by making a deal with other people who have the game and have no use for some of the items. Go on facebook/AC dedicated forum and meet people who have the game and propose a deal. Some of them can use gold nuggets (you find them buried in town) or maybe you have a talent for creating customized clothing or pictures. There has to be something that you can trade.

Anyways, if you buy the game try to hook up with people who also just got the game. That way you can all help each other and experience it like most of us did back when the game came out.

Good luck.

Yea definitely hook up with other new players. You didn't really miss anything, and I think your bus time is a perfect way to get back into your 3DS and AC is the best game to do it. I don't play as many video games as much as probably 80% of the people on this forum, but I have logged about 250 hours on it so far. Go for it.

http://www.belltreeforums.com/forum.php is a great repository for information and has really helpful people. Off the top of my head animalcrossingforums.com is another site, but lets just say you'll quickly understand why i don't recommend it.
