I completely agree. I gave it a go, but the gameplay is way too slow for Animal Crossing Bells the rewards you get. You get a whole day to do things, but a lot of this is merely collecting stuff and nothing happens before a full 24hrs later. The slow gameplay simply doesn't appeal to me.
The only real way I can describe it's like the sims using critters. I mean, I can see the allure of world building games for many people but there's no overarching goal, no end, no overarching plot. It is simply more of the same without a eventual payoff.
I have handled about 40 hours of gambling because Bravely Default 2 was released (all on Bravely Default 2) and though I've sunk 40+ hours into the game, I feel like I am making progress towards something. I can't imagine doing that 5x over and not getting a payoff.
