Gameloft / ConcernedApe / Team17 / ONE37pm

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released on the 20th of March 2020, a time when many people had to stay indoors and needed something to escape to. That’s what gave it a big boost and propelled it to the second best-selling Nintendo Switch game of all time, but Animal Crossing: New Horizons would have been a big deal regardless. The game lets players do whatever they want, including fishing, watering plants, talking to fellow villagers, going to a café, and even getting a mortgage. It does all of this with a light-hearted touch and makes for a great way to kill time in a game in a fulfilling way.
