  • I've been playing Animal Crossing for 14 years, and now I'm really excited for New Horizons.

  • It's one of the games where I could go home, and completely immerse myself, just by like, hanging out with some villagers, collecting some furniture.

  • I would say Animal Crossing for me, has helped me feel a little bit less lonely, by obviously playing with friends.

  • But connecting with villagers that have all these different types of personalities that I feel are relatable.

  • Animal Crossing is an amazing game.

  • It's a game that you can always just come back to daily and just have a bunch of fun.

  • The chance to have your own place and watch it grow.

  • I find it like a zen garden where you can pick it up, and sort of mold the world to, sort of a calming atmosphere for yourself.

  • My partner and I will definitely be spending time like after work just...building a town together, making a little progress.

  • I've always played with family growing up.

  • It's always been a part of my life honestly.

  • I played the game with my sister a lot when I was younger.

  • We would always search for fossils together.

  • And she would put the fossils in the museum, and I would bring the fish to the museum.

  • I ended up playing a lot with my sister, and we ended up bonding a lot.

  • So, it was something that we shared as a family.

  • She wants to get a Switch just because she's really excited and wants to play New Horizons with me.

  • I know I, I wake up, head right to the beach, collect all the shells for the day.

  • Go to Nook's, sell them, grab a cup of coffee.

  • It's just like everyday life but even better and more peaceful and cuter.

  • Filling up the entire museum, and having that full completed one is like my favorite element of everything.

  • I like to collect the fish, that's my favorite part of the game.

  • Like that's like the number one thing I always wanna do.

  • I always had a really fun time just seeing like fish in the water.

  • When you see a huge, huge one, it's like, "Oh my god, which one is that?".

  • So, it was always really exciting just when you, first pull it out of the water and seeing like, "Oh my gosh, I got a whale shark!".

  • I love the social element, I love designing my town.

  • And I'm also just very attached to all the characters.

  • You meet all these villagers and these animals that seem to have their own personal lives their own thing going on.

  • It feels like, they care about me, they're like, "Oh, welcome back!".

  • Or if I'm gone for a while, they'll like miss me.

  • It's like a home away from home, you know, everyone there is gonna be happy to see you.

  • You will log in and you have mail waiting for you.

  • You have little villagers coming up to you and saying they miss you.

  • And it becomes like a nice place to just be, to be you, really.
