"I haven't gone back to Animal Crossing since the DS got its own spin-off of Nintendo's friendly home-owning simulator, Wild World. Having my town and its residents in my pocket made daily play a cinch and I quickly grew addicted to the experience, but I always felt like new mechanics were missing. How was it any different from the GameCube version I had spent dozens of hours on? Falling out of the Wild World experience hurt. I slowly spent days away from my town, and the denizens within recognized my disinterest."
