I have been playing Animal Crossing in different variations for the past 10 years. I blame Strawberry Farm Boy Mike for this. Video Game nerdery wasn't really my thing. I will fully admit that my hand eye coordination is terrible. It's the reason I can't play Zelda games or Mario. As a kid, hanging out with my cousins, we would play fighting games. Yes button mashing games like Street Fighter were the best. But when they would put in Contra or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I was out. My brain couldn't tell my fingers what to do to achieve the goals of whatever games were being played. There are busted copies of NES Double Dragon, Tiger Heli, and Top Gun somewhere in the Philippines. I couldn't even get past the second level of Tiger Heli. Double Dragon? I think I got pretty far. I remember having to face Abobo, who I would always call "Adobo"
I sucked at video games, except for Tetris. I could get in a zone and go to level 20 and be cool. My trick is to turn off the sound. Also to simply keep playing. Early on I would give up, but I figured if I kept playing I would see the Kremlin and some space ship taking off.
Turnips are like the stock market. You buy them on Sunday from this old Boar Joan. She sells you these turnips at whatever rate. Then you are supposed to sell them to make bells.
