Nintendo as a company has never really been about pushing the limits of technology. They focus on novelty, and wide appeal, and just, well, fun games.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons might have seemed like an unlikely pick for one of the best selling games of all time – but with a whole lot of people being stuck at home meant that New Horizons became Nintendo’s third most successful game launch ever.

Naturally, that means the internet is talking about it a lot. And some of the best takes are coming from Tumblr.
