So I popped into our local game store today with my girlfriend. She's not a gamer by any means, but knows enough about Minecraft and game like that. She played some New Super Mario Bros with me and we love playing Surgeon Simulator together. I spotted a sign advertising the new Animal Crossing game and blurted out how excited I was for it coming out soon. You could have cut the air like butter. "What." she said. I tried to hang onto a sliver of self respect as I tried valiantly to explain why I, a 28 year old man, though Animal Crossing was awesome and how it's really addictive. How you have to pay back a raccoon called Tom Nook with bells so you can buy a bigger house and decorate it. How you grow fruit trees and send presents to your animal friends. Totally failed, girlfriend thinks I'm a manchild.
What other games sound fucking stupid when described to non-gamers?
