Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Google has revealed a list of the top ten most-searched games throughout 2020 in the United States, and everyone's favourite cast of cuddly villagers have made it into the top ten.

'Animal Crossing', which no doubt represents Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the most part, was the sixth most-searched-for game this year. Online multiplayer hit Among Us took top spot, with a mixture of titles from various walks of life making up the rest of the top ten. Here's the full list:

1) Among Us
2) Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
3) Valorant
4) Genshin Impact
5) Ghost of Tsushima
6) Animal Crossing
7) Assassin's Creed Valhalla
8) The Last of Us 2
9) Madden NFL 21
10) Jackbox

Animal Crossing's presence comes as little surprise; the game took the world by storm earlier this year, breaking sales records and dominating social media chatter as it served as a welcome distraction from world events.

Earlier today, we shared a new trailer from Nintendo which featured the Animal Crossing cast wishing you a happy festive season. Give that a watch if you're after some happy vibes, and feel free to share your thoughts on this Google list in the comments below.
