Animal Crossing: New Horizons Backlog Review - The Most Wholesome God Complex Experience

by Pierre Bell

Jason says, "This is the most wholesome god complex experience there is. It’s because of its clean art style, its undeniable charm, its embrace of its own silly imitation of real life, and the fact that you built everything yourself through the grind of hard work that you begin to form what your mind perceives. And in this lies the addiction: who doesn’t want to work on their perceptions of the world? I found myself addicted and engrossed in a digital life I thought I wouldn’t care about, and this is nearly the perfect life sim experience if it weren’t for poor quality of life (irony, right?) designs like the “one-by-one” user controls and the utterly disruptive online experience. But you know what? My island is Still. Not. Finished."
