About "Crossed Off"

"Crossed Off" is something I've been thinking about doing for a while now, mainly becaus Animal Crossing is a game that will utterly consume you when played exclusively, but it's definitely one of my favorites and I've certainly been eager to get back to it. Unfortunately, I don't know to what degree "Crossed Off" will continue. I might just carry on with it for the next couple of days as I reacquaint myself with the village, but it really did make what would have otherwise been a five minute gaming session into an hour-and-a-half one, and more or less sucked the enjoyment out of the game itself. That's not really what I'm interested in doing with games, so I can't say I'll write anymore "Crossed Off" entries. Still, I might, perhaps becoming more brief over time and lumping multiple days worth of events into one entry (in which case, the tense will switch from present to past).

It was pretty fun writing it all out, though. Particularly the introduction, which kind of decided to include some of my overarching theories about Nintendo's franchises. Anyways, I hope you enjoy/ed the little exercise, and keep your breath sufficiently unheld (but your toes crossed) for more.

  1. Well, I certainly hope you continue. You really made it feel like someone was in THE GAME, not the animal village, which I liked. I don't see that kind of fiction often enough.

    I know this is well over a year since you posted it, but I just felt I ought to comment to maybe kick some life into the project. AC fan fiction or other short stories based on it is some of the best, I think. Of course, I'm a bit biased...I think AC is one of the best Nintendo franchises.
