Animal Crossing Is Just As Bleak And Dark As Fallout 3
We all know Animal Crossing. The bright and colorful world where you waste time capturing bugs, doing favors for other animals, and decorating your house. Its cute, its charming, its dark. Dark? You ask? Yes. Animal Crossing is no better suited for a child than the gory wasteland of Fallout 3.
\”Ok, Sven. I\’ll bite. How is Animal Crossing related to Fallout 3?\” you ask.
Well… Lets start off with the world…
Animal Crossing is obviously the aftermath of some sort of Apocalypse.
Think about it. Why are there very few people around? Why aren\’t there any real cities? Why are animals in control of this whole ecosystem?
Obviously some sort of apocalypse wiped out the human world as the animals started to take over. Maybe us humans finally launched out nuclear strikes and the nuclear radiation caused the animals to gain intelligence. Maybe we did animal experimentation and they overthrew the human overlords a la Planet of the Apes.
Another big clue on why this never-mentioned event took place is the technology. It wasn\’t until Animal Crossing Wild World that the people of this world had created motorized vehicles. Before that all travel was done by steam engine.

There are so many questions to be answered that can only be seen if you take a deeper look at the world forgotten. Famous paintings are passed around with no consciousness of their worth. Old video game consoles that people haven\’t figured out how to change the cartridges. These things are bought with some odd currency for well less then their actual value which only means one thing…
An economy collapsed.
These two things are related.
What the animals didn\’t realize is that the buying and selling of turnips ended up creating a pseudo stock market… Or stalk market. If you will. Even the red turnip is similar to the bond system we have. We buy or invest in hopes that we can turn it around and make a profit. A profit that will help us pay off our house. Which brings us to our third point:
Animal Crossing is racist.
This guy is racist.
But don\’t worry, the world is changing…
Freedom at Last.
