ACNL (Animal Crossing New Leaf) is a game that is similar to The Sims. You simulate the daily life and villagers in the neighboring houses around you. You sell things for money and then spend that money on new furniture, wallpaper, floors and new fence for your house and even clothes and accessories for your own character. This game is unique because it uses a real-world clock system. When you start your game, you sync your real-world time with the game’s time and from that, you are able to experience a true day/night cycle. Even the stores and market opens at the specific time of the day. The game starts by setting up your profile
