Alright so I have attempted a few times at writing about Animal Crossing New Horizons and those times…..well……I just never quite finished them, but we will finally go and share some things with it today, now before I go and express on Animal Crossing New Horizons I just want to say that I was planning on writing a different post first, buuut then something happened and this one is going to be first written instead……..
Okay so New Horizons what can I say about it!? Well i’ve been playing this game for about two months now, I started on my Island adventure on the 11th of April even though the game made it’s debut on the 20th of March, for those of you that don’t know or have never played Animal Crossing it’s pretty different from the other Animal Crossing games we had before, however the heart of it hasn’t changed that much, so even though the series has evolved into something different instead of a town, it’s now an island,
the concept and everything that makes Animal Crossing is still there!! Now I can talk a whole lot about this game and the different things with it, but than we’d probably be here all day or so and i’m sure you all have important things to tend to so I won’t do that, I must say one of my favorite things about this game is not only the moments that you’d get from it,
but also the bonds and connections that you develop with your fellow islanders/villagers, it’s odd thing to explain, but if you ever played any of the Animal Crossing games than you know what I mean….. sometimes you find that you instantly are drawn to a villager without really knowing why and so instead of questioning it you just go with it, than you have those villagers that you know seem nice, but don’t really feel a huge connection to so you kinda just keep them where they are, as well as those that don’t really appeal to you all that much (a.k.a you don’t like them)
Then there’s the soft spot villagers/islanders as I like to call them where at first you don’t know what to feel when you come across them and so out of curiosity you invite them to your island so you can get to know them a bit more and you don’t think they’d be someone you’d become attach to or at least feel attach to, but you keep them anyway because you learn that you like them and so after having them around your island for a while,
One day you come across them and they’re having some deep thoughts and you’re curious to what they’re thinking about, could be anything (literally) and as you approach them…..you find that they’re thinking of moving, now in this moment you’re not sure whether to let them leave or have the stay, part of you wants them to stick around, but then there’s that part that…..doesn’t mind if they leave……and so after thinking on it for a bit,
You tell them…..they can go and you feel fine with your decision to have them venture out towards another Island……but then there’s this moment where you’re having a heart to heart and they thank you for being their friend and it’s in that moment you realize…..they truly meant a lot to you and you feel that deeply……..I say all this because well….. I had that moment today with a purple cat that you might all know very well named Bob,
He asked to move today and it was actually a pretty tough decision, didn’t think it’d be, but it was and i’m going to admit it…..I got a little emotional, but it’s because of what he said, I didn’t expect it, but as cheesy and lame as it is, it got me and I felt like such a nerd that a video game, better yet a villager that I never had before made me emotional….like…..WHY BOB!!!
I’m never going to forget this day….but most importantly, i’m never going to forget bob, he’s just a snack loving, bug friending……don’t ask (there’s actually a few of them to be fair) purple cat who was a delight to have on my island and to be honest….i’m going to miss him and his interesting character personality, he was one of my 3 villager move ins after playing for a while and i’m glad I got to get to know him so thank you bob, for being bob…i’m sure i’ll see you around eventually, for now you go enjoy those new snacks!!
Hope you get my letters, I sent two…..but for those who might still be reading, thanks for that, I know this is a weird post, but really this game means a lot to me and if I can express it deeply, I would, but this is long enough so i’ll just end it here, maybe i’ll make a part 2 post…….maybe….
All The Love ❤ ❤
