Beloved grandma shares her Animal Crossing city after logging 3,580 hours
Animal Crossing has been on my thoughts recently thanks partially to an 87-year-old superfan whose charming story has warmed the web’s chilly coronary heart. Earlier this month, recreation designer Paul Hubans shared a photograph of his grandmother’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf exercise log, and the information it contained was, in a phrase, staggering. Since beginning the 3DS recreation in December 2014, Audrey has performed 3,580 hours.
Let that sink in for a second. She performed New Leaf “virtually every single day” for over 4 years.

Are you able to consider many (or any) video games by which you’ve got constructed up a four-digit hour depend? The closest I’ve come to that milestone might be Warcraft III of all issues. Wringing hundreds of hours out of a single online game says lots in regards to the recreation in query and the participant’s unrelenting adoration for it.
After the preliminary tweet, Hubans acquired sufficient donations to purchase Audrey a Nintendo Change. Whereas we do not know a lot about Animal Crossing for Change, it is slated for launch this yr. She’ll be set.

This warm-and-fuzzy second was simply the most recent in a string of blissful updates. By in style demand, Hubans recorded a video together with his grandma — an in depth one, at that. It is 28 minutes! Mayor Audie talks us via a day within the lifetime of her Animal Crossing city, answering fan questions alongside the way in which.
Her favourite villager? Filbert, the squirrel with the dreamy smile.
And, let the document present, she would not play soiled in fishing tournaments. “If they are saying they want a fish you might take [one of your pets] and enter it within the contest. However I will not do it. I will not do it.”
There might finally come a time after I’m now not full of pleasure upon listening to tales about senior residents going all-in on a selected recreation, however right this moment shouldn’t be that day. Not even shut.
