Building up a town in Animal Crossing: New Leaf takes time, effort, and patience. 

Shortly after the new year arrived, an internet man named Paul Hubans shared the revelation that his 87-year-old grandmother is a proper New Leaf veteran, with 3,580 hours (and counting) invested into one single town over a four-year period. She got her first 3DS is 2014 and just kept on playing.

My 87-year-old grandma has played Animal Crossing New Leaf on her 3DS every single day for the past 4 years now.

Her 3DS finally broke this year, so we got her a new one for Christmas. During a system transfer I checked her activity log: pic.twitter.com/R33KycrW4q

The impressive stat generated plenty of excitement in gaming circles, but Hubans took things a step further. He sat down with his gram and, in a new 28-minute video, takes viewers on a guided tour of her efforts. 

A town like this should be goals for any serious New Leaf fan. Way to go, Gram Hubans.
