This is honestly one of the most completely pointless games that I have ever played. Basically you run around earning money to pay off the mortgage on your house doing errands for people who mostly belittle you and are pretty condescending. That being said, this game is actually a lot of fun and it is way to easy to accidently spend hours in the game without really noticing. It is really easy to play and manages to remain interesting without a lot of variety. Also, since the game passes in real time, it is very easy to be tempted to fall into playing the game every day so your town doesn't fall into disrepair. You get to celebrate holidays and birthdays and the residents of the town will notice and comment if your gone and don't play for awhile. You don't want to try playing this game unless your willing to be sucked in to endless hours of fishing, clothing design and tree chopping.
