2020 was the year of the casual gamer
Unlike most other forms of entertainment, video games weren't hit as hard this year. One of the biggest selling titles of the year was Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which came out in March. It's sold 26 million copies, making it the second-best selling Switch game of all time, outdoing franchise stalwarts like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
