i really wish there were more shops in the game....the island just feels empty when it's just nook's cranny and able sisters as the only functioning businesses on the island

I just got Nooks Crannies to open and two neighbors moved in. I’m honestly not much of a fan of the DIY function where I have to make the interior and exterior for all of my neighbors. It makes it so that I have to wait several days before there’s enough rock-based resources for me to finish crafting the six items they want. 

Coming out of Breath of the Wild, it’s also miserable to have the Tools break apart in the blink of an eye. The entire game just feels like a back-and-forth mad dash from where I need to be to my workshop and back.

Once you make that first bridge and the first set of three houses, you don't really have to do that kind of resource-gathering for building up the town, bridges and houses and stuff just cost bells like olden times

Just wanted to share this video here.  This guy is a great Poketuber but he's been streaming Animal Crossing on

Sundays and just uploaded a Animal Crossing video.  It's pretty good.  I just watched it and thought some of you guys might like it.

Last Saturday I finally got my island to five stars after I added more fences.

I have two golden tools now.  Also after more than a month of trying to get rid of

Leopold, he finally left.  I was hoping to get a cute squirrel or bear cub, but I settled for Biskit.

At least Biskit is cute.

I have been playing less than previous games at this point in the lifecycle (maybe once or twice a week for no more than an hour, rather than daily), but at the same time I'm recognizing (a) it is an iteration on the same game I've already binge played on and off for nearly 20 years, (b) I've got a very efficient routine down when I play, and (c) I'm a grown ass man with other things to do than play games all the time.

That being said I started picking up shells yesterday for a nookmiles task (really the first time since the original I bothered cuz there's more lucrative stuff out there), so I had an inventory full of shells today and I caught anny first arowana while standing on a bridge.

Turns out you can't drop items on bridges so I tragically had to release it which means I have to catch another for Blathers. :(

that the only businesses are Nook's cranny  the able sisters clothing store and Dodo Airlines

I'm looking forward to the Fall update though I'm still having a little fun with the game.

I actually played on the nights of the star showers and actually got several Libra star fragments which I'm happy about.

Had enough to make the Libra scales and I still have four left over so I'm going to ask some of my friends like Bloodhawk

to see if they want any.  Loved the September update of pinecones and acorns.  Had a lot of fun this month crafting those items.

i wish they did more with the halloween event instead of it just being another excuse to grind material for furniture and clothes

grinding material for furniture and clothes is literally what Animal Crossing is

except in past games you usually have more to do than just buy clothes and furniture

the villagers are extremely boring in new horizons to the point where you don't even want to interact with them at all

You've seen one villager in new horizons You've seen them all

Only in New Horizons.  Crafting wasn't in previous Animal Crossing games. 

I liked it better without the crafting to be honest.

does anyone even care that much about playing this anymore?.....feels like nothing much of substance is added in updates and it's just more events to grind for furniture/clothing

The updates are adding the seasonal content, with minor additions/QOL. There's definitely more QOL stuff they could do, but they recently announced they're going to keep doing updates for as long as the game has a player base. Also

The holiday events were *always* about grinding for exclusive furniture series and clothes.

Crafting Wasn't in previous AC Games as mentioned by this comment and crafting is where the grind comes into play

tools that break so you have to craft new ones before you can craft anything else....

events are all about collecting materials and crafting them to make more items...

before NH....Crafting didn't even exist in AC

so I'm not sure how the holiday events were always like this

here is the full list of events so far: https://animalcrossing.fandom.com/wiki/Events_(New_Horizons). easter was the only holiday solely centered around crafting, with the eggs and yeah everyone agreed it was tedious because there were no other components to it. you could entirely skip crafting in the halloween event, which just helped you get most of the items prior to the actual event. thanksgiving would probably lean towards crafting - but collecting raw ingredients for franklin was part of the even in prior iterations so that.

yes, tools breaking can be annoying, and there is a definite need for QOL changes to the crafting process (crafting multiples in bulk, crafting multiple phases of tools at once), but having crafting as an additional option in and of itself is only a net positive. and there's no requirement that anyone spend time crafting. 90% of the time I play just like I did in old games - I spend a half hour or 45 minutes mentally decompressing by doing a loop around my island, finding all the fossils and talking to each villager once, working on museum stuff, then I visit the store/sell off that inventory and stop playing for the day. no one is holding a gun to anyone's head forcing them to craft and I generally don't spend any time crafting, but that the additional option is there certainly isn't a negative.
