Playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons with my wife means getting used to the reality that I have to do fishing. The game doesn’t really give you the option of never fishing. This is a struggle for me, as categorically I dislike fishing; it’s basically on my list of things to never bother with in most games, with none of my characters having done more than a few minutes of fishing in World of Warcraft.
This is just me, of course; I know some people love fishing. Heck, even for all my general dislike, I still have Fisher capped in Final Fantasy XIV, even though I am confessedly not a fan of the general system or feel. And the chance to spend time just quietly watching the landscape while waiting for a fish to bite has a certain appeal for those who want to idly chat with some low-impact gameplay. So do you enjoy fishing in your MMOs, and do you miss it in games that for whatever reason don’t offer it as a side activity?
