Animal Crossing: New Horizons patch 1.4.1 update fixes hacked trees dream states

Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out over three months ago, taking over the gaming world like a flash flood. Plenty of people have sunk hundreds of hours into the game by now, while others fell off after a bit (though perhaps they’re back into the swing of things with the recent seasonal update). Where do you fall on that spectrum? Are you still glued to Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Have you burnt out yet? Did you pick it up right at release, or wait a little bit?

My Animal Crossing: New Horizons journey got rolling just about two weeks ago when I finally decided to see what the fuss was all about. Since then, I’ve racked up a little over thirty hours. I was completely glued to it for about a week before I got sucked into the incredible The Last of Us: Part II, which I only just recently finished. Now, for pesky real-life reasons, I’m now mostly playing Animal Crossing: Nw Horizons for an hour or so a day – making sure I grab fossils, find the money rock, and shake my money tree for the day. I’ve also slowly been converting my island into a massive fruit tree farm. There are more hands-on ways to make money, sure, but the passive 1500 Bells that non-native fruit trees spit out every three days is helping me out a lot while I’ve been less engaged with the game

I’ve got barely anything compared to some of my friends who grabbed the game just as my state went into lockdown. A few of them have easily cleared 250 hours by now. Where do you fall? Were you as enamored with the game as many Animal Crossing: New Horizons addicts out there, or have you put a little less time into it?
