Animal Crossing Expression

Can video games reflect the lives of players? A five page article by Nadia Oxford explains how Animal Crossing: Wild World allows gamers to do just that. Nadia observed four different player’s towns and characters, and compared them to their real-life behavior. The results are interesting…

Nadia’s findings showed that people could reveal their true colors through Animal Crossing. For instance, she visited her friend’s town. The usually conservative cubicle dweller’s character donned a ninja mask and featured green wallpaper in his house. Nadia was shocked to see a collection of snowman-themed items and Master Swords. Could there be more to this guy than meets the eye?

Sometimes, the results are quite the contrary. Her Number 4 friend’s town reflected his own laid-back personality. He played the game like he would real life, showing that he had nothing to hide. The game can be a creative outlet, too. Nadia found that her flourist friend taught all her animals curse words, a much needed relief from her happy-go-lucky job. Another friend greeted Nadia’s character by watering her with a watering can, suggesting that she “needed nutrients.” After reading this report, you’ll find yourself wondering if your town reflects you in a good way.
