@dangaristo I don't think it's a contrarian take! It isn't a slight toward the players or the developers, and it's not saying that people didn't *really* enjoy the game, or something. Maybe we're reading it differently.
(I'm sympathetic to this argument because I wrote about it — kind of — roughly two years ago)🤭  https://www.polygon.com/2017/12/26/16752762/animal-crossing-pocket-camp-work-escape-mobile 
@dangaristo I will venture that one feeds into the other. I know people who bought the game because of the meme (not a knock on the game). It's also surely hard to dispute that more people have interacted with the game as a meme than as a game. Feels like a valid line of critique to me!
@dangaristo Sales and play are obviously distinct. I can only really speak to my own experience, but the critique resonated with me! I bought the game with a friend, played it once or twice, and had the realization that it was more fun to watch than to play (at least ~1 hour in)
