Today, two of the most anticipated games of the entire year come out... and they couldn't be any more different.
Doom Eternal, a first-person shooter full of blood, guts, gore, and monsters vs. Animal Crossing, a calm, laid-back game where you make friends with adorable characters, build a house and a life on an island where time is always passing.
However, somehow these two games and fan bases have joined forces to create one of the best memes and crossovers of the year. Animal Crossing's director, Aya Kyogoku, had this to say about the crossover,
"So Animal Crossing and Doom — obviously the game genres are completely different. We definitely do have something in common, and that is that they’re both video games, and come from that same subculture so to speak. It’s so great to see that these two different [fandoms] are coming together and hyping up the gaming [community] and gaming culture itself. It really is a great thing to see."
