I am still shocked the jacket-wearing dude from MS is not fired yet. I would have quit in shame.

One acclaimed exclusive game (gears 5) that is not Forza in 7 + years of existence, while PS4 has an acclaimed game every few months....What a joke.

It's probably not just final fantasy, people would be buying systems for the quarantine.

I vastly underestimated Animal Crossing.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons sold more digital units in a single month (5.0M) than any console game in history. The Nintendo-published title broke the console record for monthly digital game sales previously held by Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII. Animal Crossing: New Horizons also roughly matched the first-month digital sales of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokémon Sword and Shield put together. The game’s combination of social features and a relaxing setting likely appealed to individuals stuck at home. Closures of brick and mortar stores also meant that a higher share of consumers purchased the game digitally compared to past Switch titles.

It’s a misconception Hard games with high skill ceiling cannot be popular.
