I think it's at the point, almost three months deep, where I can make a judgement on Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  I'd say it's the best Animal Crossing experience I've had, despite not quite knowing whether that's more because of the game or the situation (lockdown, The Lady getting it, lack of other big games etc.).  I still have the same issues with it that I've had with most of the games in the series, and it's never going to make my top X games of all time, but it's been beautiful and calming and at least initially it's much better paced.  I've even picked up some of the terraforming, despite never liking creative stuff in games.

It's settled into a bit of a grind at this point that I'm constantly questioning whether I enjoy, and I reckon I'm a big game away from dropping it for good; but I've enjoyed my time with ACNH more than I expected to and don't regret picking it up.  I'm aware that this is damning with faint praise, but it's not 'my sort' of game/thing, I came into it brimming with reluctance, and I've been pleasantly surprised.

I dropped off of Animal Crossing a while ago, just kind of suddenly topped playing. It was nice while it lasted though and I'm probably only an event I'm interested in away from getting invested in it again.

Another one for Animal Crossing, which I got bored of. Sold it for same price I got it for though, so no regrets.

Ultimately, I guess it wasn't enough of a departure from previous entries for me. It's probably the best entry but it feels like I've experienced enough of the game through Wild World and New Leaf.

Also never got to play it online because my NSO expired a few months ago and I didn't want to resub. Made things a bit more of a grind since I couldn't exploit the turnip market. Didn't want to buy online just for that.

I'm still dipping in every day and playing a little and having a lovely time, but I understand that the core AC thang is not to everyone's tastes. I'm glad some of you got a little more fun from this time than you might otherwise have.

Same as Buskalilly, really. I made the judgement on New Horizons a couple of months ago, which is that I think it's one of the best games I've ever played.

I think I've played New Horizons every day since I got it at launch, so that's over 3 months straight now. Quite a lot of short sessions, but I think that's helped me not overindulge and give up on it. That and being on furlough for the vast majority of that time...

I'm trying to use that formula, and for a while it's worked pretty well, but now even a little bit a day sometimes feels like a chore. Sometimes it doesn't though - and typically, it's not long after I start moaning that Nintendo announce something new and it makes me a little more excited than I was. Smile

This genuinely surprises me though. If you're so inclined, could I ask for a bit more detail on why you think this? I understand why people love Animal Crossing more than I do, but because of what I feel are inherent contradictions in the game's formula, I can't currently see how any Animal Crossing could be truly top tier. I'd like to be enlightened.

More on those contradictions:
