So for the longest time I keep hearing about how there's a line of Nintendo games that people spend hundreds of hours living their virtual lives in and have super fond memories of. I decided to finally look into this and I find myself confused, what exactly is the difference is between Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, can you guys help me out here? Which game is the one with the guy you owe money to that Jeff seems to be so fond of? Which game has the mayor getting all into your personal business (and telling you to get married)? What are the major differences and which franchise is better?
I noticed that both franchises are coming to the 3DS in 2012 and am wondering which game you guys would recommend more. I also have a Wii (somewhere in my house) and am wondering if I should start there instead.
Any help is appreciated.
