    I have a small crack on my mario strikers disc and the game still works. It just means the data part of the disc isn't cracked.

    My game gives me a ton of trouble on my oldest gamecube, but it works perfectly fine on my silver gc... It works on wii, but I need an action replay to fix most of it.....

    While a cracked disc still does work, I'd advise that you replace the disc at your earliest convenience. Discs, when spinning, are under a tremendous amount of stress, and if there's a crack in it, the disc could literally explode if it cracks even further or hits a fault, and it could damage your Wii to the point that you'll have to replace the drive.

    Animal Crossing has a really small file size, so small that the entire game will load itself into RAM. It's entirely possible that the tiny physical data area is still in tact.
    Like Team Fail suggested though it's probably not a good idea to continue using it. I suppose if you really want to continue using it with your GC you can take out the disc after it's loaded to prevent it from spinning any further.
