In today's uncertain and stressful times, millions of people have found solace in the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Fans of the famously peaceful series had to wait about seven years for a new game, and their first HD offering has thus far delivered in just about every regard. Unlike other games with measurable objectives, Animal Crossing more or less gives players free rein to do as they please. Sure, there are goals to meet such as getting your island a 5-star rating, catching all of the available fish and bugs, and breeding all of the hybrid flowers (among other things), but there is no set order to these tasks; you can pretty much do whatever you want, whenever you want to. This freeform style helps to make Animal Crossing one of the most immersive gaming experiences available.
