Due to that handicapped 5 year old who's already being taught that this hobby is not to them while they see family and friends enjoy it easily. I very seldom have audio on, mainly since the"woohoo" sound celebrating when you craft or Animal Crossing Bells learn or capture anything is loud compared with everything else. (And because I'm often playing while we're watching TV or while I'm on a phone or while my wife is sitting nearby trying to do a little bit of work for a few of her courses.) But all of the cues you mention are so helpful, and it sucks to overlook them! I feel precisely the same. I have been on disability for two years now, and without a car for all the time. Then COVID added to it, so I was basically stuck at home almost all the time except for doctor appointments. I kept so calm and joyful during the pandemic, I really think this game is perfect for people like me that don't have to work or feel like contributing members of society. But I totally agree that Animal Crossing is a really singular game in it's capability to give you something to do, while still being very calm and soothing at the exact same time. I also expect you can find a way to feel as if you're contributing to society. It does not need to come out of your work. You have contributed positivity for Buy Nook Miles Ticket my entire day, and I'm definitely going to pass this on.
