Unlike most gamers my age, I had never played the game until the release of Animal Crossing New Horizon. In my mind it was a game for children and ‘living together on an island’ didn’t really appeal to me. However, the closer we got to the release of New Horizon, the more curious I became about the hype. Since fellow Girl Gamer Galaxy blogger Nicky was also super excited, I decided to try it with all the consequences that followed. I will tell you how I got addicted to this game and why I stopped playing Animal Crossing.
