    Only Longtime "Animal Crossing" Players Have Experienced These 32 Struggles, And They Continue To Be Annoying As Hell

    *slips into a buried pitfall seed*

    1. When you try to get into a building but have a net or shovel in your hand.

    What do the villagers think when you continuously hit their door with a net?

    2. Not having enough inventory space.

    Now where am I going to put this rock?

    3. When you forget you bought a ton of Bells' worth of turnips and accidentally time travel backwards? AHHHH!

    The pain is real.

    4. When you’re hoping to dig up a fossil but it’s just a Pitfall Seed.

    Again with those Pitfall Seeds.

    5. When you have to deal with rude villagers.

    Thank goodness now you can just make them move out.

    6. Did I mention wasps nests? HATE. THEM.


    Life hack: Keep some medicine in your inventory at ALL times.

    7. And again, don’t even get me started on the dang Pitfall Seeds.

    Worse than wasps? POSSIBLY!

    8. When your favorite villager — the one that you talk to every single day — wants to move out. WHY?!



    9. Aaaand when your least favorite villager that you’ve ignored for the past three months ~doesn’t~ want to move out.

    10. When your friend’s island looks 100 times better than yours.

    Visited a friend's island and he's placed his house at the top of a cliff like an overlord #AnimalCrossing #ACNH #NintendoSwitch


    Don’t worry, it’s not just you.

    11. When you’re trying to catch a bug and a villager just SITS on it.

    That’s when you know they’ve gotta go.

    12. Thinking you'll never be able to pay back your home loan and being 5 millions Bells in debt.

    Nintendo/Youtube: BeardBear / Via

    That is kind of the point of the game, I guess.

    13. Having too many Bells than will fit in your wallet.

    My first bell bag!! Too many bells. #AnimalCrossing #ACNH #NintendoSwitch


    #richpeopleproblems (OK, maybe this one is less of a struggle than the rest.)

    14. Isabelle’s ENDLESS dialogue.


    Who knew a dog could talk so much?

    15. When your tool breaks and you’re out of resources to craft another one.

    Day 1: first broken tool. It was an honer working with you ;-; #AnimalCrossing #ACNH #NintendoSwitch


    Time to shake some trees for branches and hope no wasp nests fall out of them.

    16. Accidentally (or not-so-accidentally) resetting the game without hitting save in the OG game.

    Nintendo/Animal Crossing Wiki - Fandom / Via

    We’ve all done it.

    17. Or deleting your entire town altogether.


    I only cried for a few hours over this.

    18. When your villagers give you random junk that you'll never use.

    Nintendo/Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Wiki - Gamepedia / Via!

    What am I supposed to do with this raincoat? I guess I'll sell it to make a measly 90 bells.

    19. When you invite your friends over to your town and they run right through your flowers.

    me: „please stop running through my flowers :(((” also me:


    *sniffles* I guess they’ll grow back.

    20. Or just completely forgetting to water them.

    It has come to my attention at this fine hour of 1am that I FORGOT to water my flowers in animal crossing today 😭 #AnimalCrossingNewHorizons #AnimalCrossing #ACNH


    So many wilted flowers.

    21. When everyone else has Raymond and you don’t.

    Take a look at Raymond reading in his little bed #AnimalCrossing #ACNH


    Just admit that you have a Raymond obsession.

    22. Playing for ten hours straight for three weeks to get a five-star island.

    Yay! Finally got a 5 star town rating

    It pays off.

    23. Having to share a town with your siblings.

    Nintendo/YouTube: iJustine / Via

    How can one person do so much damage?!

    24. Picking weeds. Period.

    Nintendo/YouTube: Xzax / Via

    SO 👏 MANY 👏 WEEDS 👏.

    25. The long boat ride to the island that Kapp’n takes you on.

    I wonder if Kapp'n ever gets sea sick…


    *Spams every single button*

    26. Having to look all over your island to find Joan or Daisy Mae.

    Nintendo/Animal Crossing Wiki - Fandom / Via

    The things we do for turnips.

    27. Placing a path down in the wrong spot.

    Nintendo/YouTube: Release-Fire / Via

    I’m too lazy to fix it.

    28. Resetti. That's it, that's the struggle.


    And that’s all I have to say about that.

    29. When tarantulas just appear out of absolutely NOWHERE.

    Nintendo/YouTube: PhishyBusiness / Via

    Seriously though, where do they come from?! And when did this game become violent?!

    30. Having to horde fish and bugs outside of the museum and wait until it opens to donate them.

    Nintendo Life

    So. Many. Bugs.

    31. Trying to find the owner of a “lost item."

    Found a lost item in my island! Time to investigate... #AnimalCrossing #ACNH #NintendoSwitch

    Can somebody just claim it already?!

    32. And finally, looking for a good turnip price.

    It it too much to ask for a turnip price over 84 Bells?
