With the upcoming release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf I've read a few gaming articles online about what motivates people to play Animal Crossing. With no clear goal or end to the game beyond paying off your continually upgraded house, a lot of people question just what it is exactly that keeps them playing.

I know when the first Animal Crossing title for GameCube hit the states back in the early 2000's I was intrigued by it's laid back game-play. Once I bought it, the sheer amount of things to do easily kept me busy followed by decorating/upgrading my house. However what really got me excited about continuing to play was discovering you could collect old NES games in your house and play them for free ANYTIME! I can only assume that with the release of the Animal Crossing: New Leaf's ability to show off your virtual house to people more easily than before people will be enjoying Animal Crossing for a long time to come indeed.

So, what is it about any of the Animal Crossing games that kept YOU playing?
Also, will you be purchasing Animal Crossing: New Leaf when it's released?
