"Every Animal Crossing game starts the same way. You’re asked a few questions to determine what your character will look like, a town layout is randomly generated and then you arrive. The first thing you’ll notice is that literally everyone you meet bar yourself is a walking, talking animal. And you’ve just got to be okay with this. The second thing you’ll just have to accept is that you will be in debt to the estate agent indefinitely. As soon as you finish paying him for your lovely new home, he’ll blether on about an upgrade and won’t stop until you’ve agreed to go into even more debt."
