I played for about 100 hoursbefore I have burnt out. And that I had been taking my time on this match. I was not one of those players who time went, or played for hours on end every day. That is coming from someone who's played with previous games in the Animal Crossing Bells series for months, without becoming bored. Can I get my money's worth with this game? I suppose you can say . It's just a pity that New Horizons was only able to maintain my attention for about 3 weeks, especially considering this is a game that is designed to be played at least one year.
Also, 100 hours spent in New Horizons, is not necessarily exactly like 100 hours in a game such as, say, Breath of the Wild. A fantastic chunk of my playtime was spent doing tedious and repetitive tasks, or just waiting around because the overall gameplay is so slow. I really don't regret my time on this match, but I only wish there were more reasons to make me want to continue playing, and sadly there are not. .
I will agree though, I like the old instructions of the AC games. Unless you're into terraforming and super decorating, then this game is severely lacking in even only fitting previous games' content. I enjoyed browsing the shops daily... and now there's only two of these to browse every day, one is very limited (Nook's, 5 items, actually?) And another is frustrating (Able's, I actually can not buy more than one of the identical item type simultaneously?)
I like terraforming but once it is over and done with and you enjoy your layouts... you realize how bare the match is. My only playtime today tends to come from when I have new design ideas, otherwise it is the occasional hop on, do a buy Animal Crossing New Horizons Bells few errands, browse the shops in 5min, and be done.
