This is awesomely cute and supports my thesis that Animal Crossing is in and of itself the pure essence of love:
In the game, Adam traveled to Sarah’s town to write and deliver the letter. GameCube controller in hand, he typed: “I love you Sarah Dane Buck. Will you marry me?” He then shot back to his own town to save. On Valentine’s Day, Adam told Sarah to boot up Animal Crossing so they could see the game’s special Valentine’s celebrations. Upon opening her mail, Sarah saw the letter and swiftly opened it. Would Adam’s plan work? Or would Sarah call him a geek and punch him in the nuts? It worked all right. According to Adam, Sarah hastily accepted the unique proposal.
