This is the first Animal Crossing game that I really sunk into and I bought City Folk for a cheap price on eBay. Now I feel upset that I never got into this game when it debut on the GameCube/N64. I just expanded my house so now I'm in debt to Tom Nook AND I have a Dream Center project in the works. I still don't know what the best way to earn Bells are other than fishing and that's not always a guarantee. Am I doing something wrong when it comes to my work and pay?

Don't trip about grinding bells. Just chill out, do what seems fun, work your way through the collection log, and visit other towns if anyone else is still playing.

I wouldn't put too much time into New Leaf with the new game coming out early next year anyway, don't to burn yourself out.

I always heard New Leaf was the worst AC game

I dont know about the other games but New Leaf was unbearably boring. Worst 20 i ever spent.

Heard where? New Leaf is almost universally considered the best one next to the Gamecube original.

Shut the fuck up Four, you already embarrassed yourself thoroughly the last time you mouthed off about despising the AC games.

I put over 500 hours in New Leaf, I cant bring myself to play it much anymore lately but I loved it. The gamecube version was the best, part of me knows they'll never capture that weird loneliness again.

I cant even imagine what you did for the first hundred hours. Its just soo sloow.

Think of it this way - New Leaf came out in mid 2013. I hit 500 hours somewhere around 4 years in. I didnt play every day, but if you average it out daily you get about 34 minutes.

34 minutes a day is a sweet spot for Animal Crossing. You check in early morning, maybe catch some rare bugs and fish. Log back on around noon and earn some bells, do some shopping. Say good evening to your neighbors later.

It is a game meant to be played a little at a time.

Especially if you get on animal crossing community forums or I'm sure theres other websites now, and find people with high prices on Sunday. Just sink all the bells you can afford into turnips and one day it will finally pay off.

Turnips are the only way to make reasonable progress in that game.

Turnips are essentially the stocks of this game, right? I wish I understood how they worked or else I could be making some serious money in real life. I know about buy low sell high but I have no idea when to utilize it.

The idea is that you save up Bells by fishing or growing fruit, then selling them until you have a respectable amount of Bells.
Then, on a Sunday (when the Turnip NPC is in town), you buy as many turnips as you can for as cheap as you can (whether this means looking online for people who say their town has turnips for a really low price or staying in your town and buying them), then you spend the next 6 days looking for the highest price to sell them for (whether this means looking online for people who say their town has turnips selling for a really high price or staying in your town and selling them).
The gamble is in when you sell them. Lets say that you saw a post about a town where 1 turnip sells for 150 bells. You can choose to go there and sell or wait for a higher price....but either way, you only have 6 days.

Stocks irl are similar but affected by events....there's also only one market. So lets say you buy 5 stocks in Turnip Farms Inc. for $5 each but then a cold snap happens and all the turnips die. Most investors don't want to own stock in a business that has all of its product rendered unusable, so they'll probably sell their stock. The price of stock for Turnip Farms Inc would plummet (lets say they're worth 50 cents each now) but if you think they'll make a comeback, you can buy the stock for cheap and keep the stock you already have. If you're right and Turnip Farms Inc has a good year, the price of the stock you own goes up; so instead of owning 5 stocks worth $5 each, now you own 5 stocks worth $100 each....or, if you bought a bunch of stock when they were worth 50 cents, 100 stocks worth 50 cents each which turns into 100 stocks worth $100 each.

The Animal Crossing version (actually called the Stalk Market) is like the irl stock market but simplified and with multiple realities where the same stock is worth more or less.

there's actually more to it that I forgot:

You can keep buying low and selling high until the end of the 6 days (because after that, the turnips rot and you can't sell them). Ideally, you stop buying turnips right before Sunday because now you have gobs of money and not pockets full of rotten turnips.
