Build your island. Invite friends. Show off your island. Repeat. Fun.

1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

When the COVID-19 outbreak happened and people were forced to stay quarantined in their homes with almost nothing to do, Nintendo released a new Animal Crossing game that many Nintendo Switch users turned to and endlessly played while in the shelter of their homes. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is an adorable, peaceful game that a lot of users have come to love. In it, you would be given the job of improving island living by crafting items, customizing those items, and giving the land new form in order to create something unique in your island. But an island wouldn’t be a home without residents, right? So you will be tasked further with the job of placing residency plots and finding the right residents to occupy the plots. The game also offers a Multiplayer feature for you and your friends to play online while you’re apart due to the quarantine. An island can have up to 8 players at once, but in the Multiplayer feature of only one Switch console, you can only have up to 4 players at once. So are you ready to hop onto island living and improve your island’s environment?
