There’s been one thing, and one thing only, getting us through lockdown and that is Animal Crossing.
We can’t go out in real life? Fine, we’ll do it virtually and be a much more respectable member of society in-game than we have ever been in real life. All this for the low cost of selling your soul to Mr. Tom Nook.
We know that everyone and anyone is playing New Horizons right now, so we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the best insights, tips, tricks and commentary on the game.
Tom Nook is a dirty thieving lying tory | Plumbella
One of the joys of being a long time player of Animal Crossing is seeing new players’ reactions to a game that is second nature to you, and Jesse McNamara’s reaction has to be our favourite. Everyone new to Animal Crossing expects it to be easy, a game for children no less, but when is this ever the case?
It brings us great joy in seeing her struggle and then yell at “Tory” Tom Nook for just watching her pain with his beady eyes.
The Mystery of Zipper T Bunny | Shakespeare Jones
With Bunny Day just gone and with it all those pesky eggs, it has us thinking, who is Zipper T Bunny? Who is under that bunny head? If it is anyone? WE NEED TO KNOW!
This video from Shakespeare Jones really delves into some of the best theories about his true identity that even a long time Animal Crossing fan might not have heard before.
Animal Crossing New Horizons is very relaxing | Bard
This playthrough truly is the epitome of all great Animal Crossing players. We take a nice relaxing game and turn it into a RAGE FILLED STRESSFUL EXPERIENCE. We can’t help it though – there’s just so much that needs to be done to ensure our island is the best one out there!
Truly, if you are not threatening your friends with axes when they visit your island, are you even playing the game right? (Answer: obviously not.)
BASS GUY | Girlfriend Reviews
“That I’m the bass guy, always fishing trash guy, pretty crappy catch guy.”
Animal Crossing has some great songs in it, but we think this one from Shelby of Girlfriend Reviews might just beat them all. It really captures the true struggle players face on a day-to-day basis.
Bass, after bass, after bass. Please, sir, we’re just trying to pay our bills.
88-Year-Old Grandma Unboxing Animal Crossing New Horizons Switch | Phubans
If you want some wholesome content, this is perfect.
Paul Huban‘s 88-year-old grandma has played over 4,000 hours of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and actually went viral last year because of her love for the game. So it’s only right that her grandson gifted her with the latest installment – and to make it even better, Nintendo even named a villager after her!
If you have a wolf called Audie in your town, you best be extra nice.
So there you have it…
Our Five of the Best: Animal Crossing Videos to keep you happy in-between playing the game and waiting for new fish to spawn. It’s nice to have some wholesome content and solidarity in times like this, even if it is just a game. Hey, who knows, perhaps socialising via Animal Crossing will become the new normal.
Who are your island villagers? Be sure to tweet @TenEightyUK and let us know!
