You've never been to anyone else's town?! That's a bummer! I used to be a mod on an AC website, so I have a few friends I was able to visit before I started school. I haven't played in a year, because seriously, I was in college for the first time when the Gamecube version came out. I think that's most of the reason I did so badly, so I haven't let myself play while I'm in school this time. I'm sure my town is all weedy and gross.
We should definitely exchange friend codes! Will you hate me if I tell you that I hacked my town? I was not happy with the stupid path thing they put in being such an utter fail.
