Perusing a Kotaku discussion about one of my favorite games growing up, a contributor touched on a sobering but extremely memorable experience they’ve had in Animal Crossing.
This transcends the gap between reality and gaming for me. Since this game encompasses everything that a which is the everyday humdrum and community based game has, there is this chilling repercussion as the game takes on the facets of death. Villagers move away and return; however there is never the insistance on an end.
But maybe in Animal Crossing, there really is no end.
