As the world tries to navigate a global pandemic, many have adopted a new reality: Nintendo’s new smash hit Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Daily work routines and commutes are being swapped for wholesome days, events and pleasant conversations on their respective Animal Crossing islands.
This gives you an idea of just how popular this brilliant title is!
This is despite its release in close proximity to Doom: Eternal, a game that serves as a stark contrast to the calm and peaceful Animal Crossing lifestyle. Doom players rip and shred demons with ammunition, explosions, or in some cases, their bare hands. It’s wonderfully gory and beautiful. Absolute opposite to what Animal Crossing has to offer.
What no one could have anticipated were the collaborative memes that arose involving the two titles!
Upon releases of these titles, the internet was flooded with memes involving ‘the Doom guy’ and popular Animal Crossing character Isabelle navigating each others’ worlds. Examples are the ‘the Doom guy’ calmly fishing for guppies, and Isabelle locked and loaded and pumping lead into demons from hell!
So we thought we’d treat you to our ten favorite memes that have popped up in this weird and unusual time. Enjoy!
