The time of day and season match real life, so each day on your island is a chance to check in and find new surprises all year round. - Nintendo.com
THE game of 2020 has to be Animal Crossing: New Horizons. My household logged in daily to our digital islands to dig fossils, plant flowers, and ply our anthropomorphic villagers with frivolous gifts. All in the name of escapism. Animal Crossing is a long-standing video game franchise, but in such a bizarre year, New Horizons hit differently in 2020.
As folks found themselves trapped at home with very little to do, Animal Crossing: New Horizons provided a small, constant escape from reality. Being able to log in and interact with both digital villagers and actual friends made ACNH a go-to destination for many gamers. For this games outstanding contribution to society in a time of need, Animal Crossing: New Horizons wins the Super. Black. Best of 2020 Game of the Year Award!
