Animal Crossing memes: A perfect description of our quarantine
Animal Crossing was already going to be a huge hit with people, however the game became a bit of a phenomena when it ended up being released shortly after everyone received stay-at-home orders because of the pandemic.
The cozy and cute video game suddenly became not just a fun way to wind down in the evening or an enjoyable way to pass the weekend, but a mental health necessity for people. The escapism of building your own home and community on a private island somewhere in the middle of nowhere was exactly what everyone needed.
Our obsessions with the cute Nintendo Switch game has defined a lot of quarantine experiences so we thought we’d compile some of our favorite memes.

Shouldn’t be this hard
Fishing is supposed to be relaxing isn’t it?
Such an innocent game shouldn’t cause so much pain.
