Okay, so I didn't RENT this game, I had once bought it. Then I lost it. But I wish I could still play it. So, this game is almost like any Sims game. EXCEPT you don't need to eat, drink, poo, ect. You don't get married or anything, but you still get the Sims game feeling to it when you have to manage money, or "Bells".
You have to decide how to spend your Bells. "Do I want to pay off a little of my mortgage, or buy this cute dress?" But you can always get more by selling fruit, and fruit is located all OVER your little town. Or you can sell fish or bugs, which are also located all OVER your town.
Still not convinced? I understand. "But what if I wanna chat with REAL people? People who understand the tight money and whatever?" You also get to connect with friends! Chat, go to their village, whatever. All you need is a friend code, which you can easily get by the gatekeeper. Plus, as an added bonus, the fruit on your friends town is worth more, so you will get more money!
"But is that all? Sounds pretty boring to me....." BUT it's NOT! You always will have surprising little events like Flea Markets or Bug Offs!
"Uh, then where's all the stores to get clothes and furniture?" There are salesmen and a store with everything and a clothes store. If that's not enough, you can go to the city and buy more things there!
Now, after all this, are you convinced? DO NOT RENT IT, BUY IT CUZ YOU WILL BE PLAYING IT NON-STOP FOR 1,000,000 YEARS!

When you first glance at the Animal Crossing box, the game may look juvenile. But that's not the case- it's definitely one of those all-ages games. My six-year-old neighbor plays it, as does his mom who's in her 30's! ACCF is kind of what you make of it, so make sure to look online for some fun cheats. In your town, the weather changes, seasons change, events happen, people move out, move in, just like a real-life town! (except for the fact that it's nothing like a real-life town). My favorite part is going on wifi to visit other friend's towns! You can also connect Wii Speak to this game and talk to your friends! There is so much to do in this game- I have blown over 300 hours on this game, according to the Nintendo Channel. You should definitely rent this game, and I can pretty much guarantee that you'll want to keep it.

I love this game SO much! Except 50% of the people in my town are snobs...but the graphics are perfect, gameplay is very maximum (well, it does use that 'real time' thing) and the thing I'm not satisfied about is..Multiplayer. You can't have 2 people on the same screen, it has to be over the internet. My friend is almost never online and her and her brother are the only 2 on my list. Other than that, its VERY addicting. I had over 99,000 bells before. Thanks alot old furniture! :P Now, I sugesst get this on your Q, if not already!
