Episode 162 – Animal Crossing w/ Henshin Dad

Bad times…are just times that are bad

Animal Crossing New Horizons arrives later this month so we decided it was a good time to do an episode on the Animal Crossing series! Henshin Dad joins us to help discuss our the series and it’s themes of community, capitalism, and what we can learn as Christians.

Henshin Dad

Housekeeping (3:45)

What Have We Been Playing (6:25)

Wesley discusses his year-long journey of playing through all of the Dragon Quest games, arriving at DQ6. Adam discusses playing through the Spyro games because Logan hasn’t sent him Control and Outer Worlds. Logan gushes over how Dragon Quest XI has raised the bar for JRPGs.

What Have We Been Reading (24:05)

Wesley discusses reading The Hobbit with his son. Adam has been reading 1 Thessalonians 4 and shares about doing more in regards to our Christian walk. Logan shares from Romans 1 the urgency of sharing the Gospel to a lost and dying world.

Topic (39:45) *SPOILER-FREE*

This entire segment is spoiler-free because Animal Crossing doesn’t really have a story to spoil.

Animal Crossing is a game that, at first glance, one would not be judged for thinking it’s a goofy doll-house style game. But through a deeper inspection, you find a game that teaches basic fundamental principles for success as an adult such as managing finances, giving back to your community, and fostering relationships. Logan and Wesley discuss these themes, as well as the Biblical parallels.
