This game couldn’t have come out at a better time. I’m sure you’ve seen it. It’s all over TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Everyone is talking about Animal Crossing New Horizons. This game was destined to be a hit.
It released right before stores closed and it’s impact on the internet has been huge. This game is bringing people together during these dark times. You just get lost in it and accidentally play for six hours at a time. I got the game on release day and I’ve already spent over 60 hours in time game. And those are tame numbers compared ot some people out there.

The best part of this game is it’s online. It is so easy to just open up your island to your friends and let them come and visit you. There is even in game texting! Which is pretty cool since you can’t even message friends through the switch itself. During these harsh times, it is important to stay together and stay connected. Sorry this one is shorter than my usual story but, Tom Nook will not be happy if he doesn’t get his money soon.
