Animal Crossing: City Folk (Wii)

image

Animal Crossing is one of those games you pick up with the intention of playing just for a few minutes, only to suddenly realize that several hours have gone by. It's wonderfully easy to lose yourself in the relaxing lifestyle of fishing, chatting with neighbors, decorating your house and digging up fossils. Don't think that your hardcore gamer nature will render you immune to its charms, either. Sure, it's adorable to the point of being precious, but the addictive appeal of perfecting your town - not to mention using the game to send juvenile or dorky letters to your real-life Animal Crossing-playing pals - is undeniable.

Up next: It's a small world, after all.
