Animal Crossing tells the beautiful story of our mundane lives

There are games that model daily behavior — even games that make you brush your teeth — but there's no need to be so literal: the most exciting and violent practices of a video game are just as mundane and essential as the most basic human habits of going to the bathroom, fixing a simple dinner, adjusting the covers before you asleep. The mechanics of a game mimic the scaffolding on our real everyday lives. The big moments aren't the most important ones. (3DS, Animal Crossing: New Leaf)
