Animal Crossing

I’ve never played Animal Crossing, but my wife is playing, and I can hear the sounds from the next room or down the couch.  The sounds are so soothing and pleasant.  Since the NES days, Nintendo always managed to produce nice, soothing sounds.  Some games are exceptions, but when I think of the sounds of Super Mario, or Tetris on GameBoy, or Mario Kart on N64, and now Animal Crossing, I’m impressed at Nintendo’s ability to generate fun, calming sounds.  I believe that’s an under-appreciated part of Nintendo’s appeal and success.
