I feel like Animal Crossing is a hard game to explain, but you can sort of sum it up by asking:
a) do you enjoy grinding in a video game, like the actual act of it, irrespective of any reward that comes afterwards?
b) do you enjoy the feeling of clearing a checklist, and working towards long-term goals?
c) do you enjoy characters that are both relatively flat, in that they never change and are fairly one-note, but really perfectly hit that one personality trait that they have?
d) do you find escapist fantasies generally appealing?
e) are you someone who marathons a game until beating it/burning out on it, or do you like playing things a bit at a time?
If the answers to that are all yeses (and the latter for e), then you’d probably vibe with ACNH. If it’s a mix, then maybe (I’m a mix, and I loved it). If they’re all nos, then I’d skip it.
