When Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released in March, a few weeks after the pandemic, many people thought the game was a relaxant, a yearning for peace and calm during the turbulent period of 2020.
The appeal of the game is its authenticity. Going to Buy ACNH Bells, catching and trading is similar to real life. In any case, the authenticity of the game is somewhat reassuring. In the end, these lovely content can and has become a part of life, and then inevitably produce expectations. And this expectation is the core of "New Horizons". Every day starts when you walk out of the front door, where did you go the night before. Is there the same visitor every week, what lines of narrative; four fossils buried in that piece of soil, are different.
Of course, one might argue that all video games will eventually fall victim to unconscious repetition, but New Horizons makes it an ability, not a loophole. Only by filling the island can you achieve the goal of a five-star rating for your island. Having more things is a key indicator of the success of the game, so you are looking forward to your island again and again, hoping to get more things.
Random items actually fell from the sky or from the tree, and should be kept or sold. The number of items in possession is limited, and the number of animals that can be captured is limited. Players need different products to circulate in Nook’s Cranny, and use different clothes in the tailor shop of Able Sisters. I can wear a sequined blazer and pretend to be a stand-up comedian or a Viking in a helmet and boots.
To be honest, there is no end. After arriving at the five-star island, the incentives did not decrease, Isabelle congratulated you, and gave you a golden watering can recipe, and then you can make one. In this way, you have begun to look forward to new expectations, which is the attraction of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Almost all mysterious islands are different. You will be excited about an even slightly different apple or peach. This is a new type of apple that can be planted and picked.
The neighbors seem to be an exception: they move to your island in search of adventure, and then move to other places to continue. However, this choice is firmly in your hands, and you must decide whether to let these friends live another life or stay. Just like ACNH Nook Miles Ticket, they will be your wealth.
