The Animal Crossing is a video game series of communication simulation games, exclusively for Nintendo consoles. All games are non-linear, in the sense that they have a somewhat set beginning, but no middle or end. The player takes the role of a human in a village of animals . The series is non-violent, and rated 'E' for Everyone by the ESRB (3+ by PEGI).
The first generation (2001-2005) games were mainly Japanese-exclusives. The second generation games (2005-2012) introduced the 'rolling log' perspective, a series staple ever since, as well as online play. The third generation games (2012-2020) introduced exterior design in the form of public works projects, as well as the character Isabelle.
