    1. I am an avid video game player, and I too know it’s boring. What animal crossing is a family bonding and heavenly gem. It was released at a time when it was a growing Nintendo IP, and the world needed a distraction. With the world wide lock down it was lightening in a bottle for Nintendo for the 50th time. They seem to do that a lot, capturing lightening in a bottle. Breath of the wild, Mario kart 8, the even let Konami on the secret with momotaro whatever its real name. Metroid prime is also set to join in this amazing trend.

  1. Dannybogard: Everyone has different tastes in Video Games. I love Mario+Rabbids while it seems almost everyone else hates it. It seems you just want to know what makes it so fun. From my experience, it’s a game that lets you hoard and design the heck outta things. Some people like the villagers, the crafting or the music and calm atmosphere. Its success is largely due to the situation everyone was in at its release, right at the start of the pandemic. A life sim game, filled with Nintendo charm, lets you “live” your life in a perfect world. It also appeals to casual and hardcore players. The people bought the game at launch, most of them don’t play regularly, so you aren’t the only one. Finally, it’s important to note that the gameplay you’ve watched on this game was probably for a playstyle you don’t enjoy. This game supports many playstyles and you can play the game at your own pace in your own way. Some people go full-on, decorating their island to the max, while others, like me, just try to keep Tom Nook out of our house at night, demanding for Bells. I’m not trying to sell you on this game or force my taste of Video Games onto you. I just want to help you understand. Hope this helps: )
