Animal Crossing: Wild World (Nintendo DS)
Broadly similar to The Sims, Animal Crossing is a series in which players help guide the fuzzy inhabitants of a town get through the day. Players can fix up their characters' houses, go fishing, plant a garden, or socialize with other players through a Wi-Fi connection. Because Animal Crossing can be played for long stretches or brief spurts, it's perfect for keeping in your bag in case you find a few moments of downtime.
