I’ve been wanting to check up on my very first Animal Crossing: GameCube town from my childhood, called Ordale, for a while now. I finally did this morning and decided to share these pictures of my first town. 🙂 I’ll post them in the order they were taken rather than arranging them in an order that makes sense. That way you can get a feel for how lost I was wandering around my old town.
Unlike AC:WW, the title screen doesn’t show your own town, but randomly generated towns and characters.
Ahh Jane! She used to scare me a little. Why does she have Olivia’s catchprase? Olivia (the first Animal Crossing villager I met) probably moved out of Ordale ages ago. 😦
The first thing I see when I step outside is clutter on the ground and the gaudy exterior of my house. My tastes have changed a bit since then. 😆
The left side of my main room, in which I used harvest furniture — probably because it was the only complete series I had. 😛 When I played AC:GC, it was more lazy and relaxing in that I didn’t have any big goals like completing my catalog, or elaborately building a town, etc., like I do now.
The other side. This tiny chair in front of the TV makes no sense realistically. 😆 I should give my younger self a break, though; I was, what, 9 when this game came out?
I’m not sure what the deal is with my upstairs. It looks like I had a plan for it with the carpet and wallpaper, then it turned into a random storage room.
The outside of my dad’s house. He’s from Tennessee, and repping his love of the University of Tennessee Volunteers. 😆
He has a space theme going on in his main room, and the noises of the gyroids really add to the atmosphere.
I like his upstairs a lot, certainly beats my rooms in this game! It seems cozy and livable, like a room you might see in a real house — except for the random suit of armor. 😛 (To be fair, storage was really limited in this game!)
My dad payed off his debt before I did, so he got the gold statue. If I had known that you get a statue when you pay off the last debt, I would have worked harder on it. In the moment this was painful for me, but it’s pretty funny looking back!
My sad silver statue, lol 😥
Nookington’s looks nice with red and yellow flowers. 🙂
Tom Nook — his greeting is pretty funny in this game!
Sorry Otis, I don’t remember you at all.
Make up your minds about my weight! 😛
The waterfall. 🙂 More flowers would make this a better spot.
Geez, sorry 😮 Just revisiting childhood memories here, don’t mind me.
The town lake. 🙂 I remember fishing was one of my family’s biggest hobbies in this game; even my brother liked to fish, playing as my dad’s character. I guess it’s kind of a fun little mini-game that anyone can pick up on ^_^
This would be a nice spot without the weeds. I didn’t go too wild landscaping my town in AC:GC, but I do remember setting up a few gardens in spots like this.
Checking out the Able Sisters. After playing Wild World for so long, it’s weird not having it next to Nook’s!
I made the plaid pattern; my dad make the T pattern and the bikini pattern. The band uniform and brown suit were from the game’s guide book. Not sure about the others…
I think I remember her. (How can you forget a name like Nosegay?)
Posing next to the strange painting and the amazing(?) painting in the museum
Hey, the fossil exhibit looks complete!
Hardly any bugs in here. 😦 I wasn’t very good at catching bugs until Wild World.
Haha, I remember my orchard! It’s in a little river nook, and when someone moves in where the signpost is, the trees frame their house. ^^ I think Tangy lived here at one point, fittingly because of all the fruit!
Aziz is still here!
I’ve been playing Wild World, too bad you’re not in it.
One of my memories of Aziz is talking with him late into the night at his home, and he kept giving me furniture over and over — so generous! xD
I don’t remember having Poncho in Ordale… I actually want him in one of my WW towns. The jock personality is my least favorite type, but he’s cute.
These are two “new” (who knows how long they’ve been there without me meeting them) neighbors:
Found the ball! This was a fun little quirk in AC:GC.
Yep, this is the message I expected. 😛
