"Unlike other Animal Crossing games, Animal Crossing: New Leaf puts you in the role of mayor. As the mayor, it’s your job to meet and greet citizens, decide on town projects, host holiday events, and more. I like the idea of being the mayor as I believe it gives the player something to work toward, and an additional reason to come back day after day. Of course, all the traditional Animal Crossing elements make their return, as well."
