Nintendo's popular life-sim meets island getaway and digital bug catcher has finally made its way to the Nintendo Switch with Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With the current state of things playing a life-sim right now can be a strange but still calming experience.

As Rachel Wu found out in her review. Where outside of picking out different outfits for her digital counterpart to wear, she also found a little bit of peace. Through hoarding.
As a self-professed hoarder and someone who despises asking for directions in any game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and I, well, we had a rough start. Not knowing whether a newly caught fish was rare, or if a particular seashell might be the important ingredient in a crafting recipe, was almost immediately anxiety inducing. Uncertainty wasn’t what I signed up for, nor what I was looking for in a life-sim. So I found myself spending hours fishing and questioning what I was doing with my life – both in-game and out.

As it turns out, this is a key part of Animal Crossing’s appeal - the simple beauty of existence.
