Why Animal Crossing is a neoliberal capitalist hellscape

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a cutesy, slow-paced, abandoned island-them-up game by Nintendo, the same company that brought you such titles as Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Wikipedia describes the game as a "social simulation", but that's incorrect: this masks its true identity as an accidental expose of the unintended consequences of neoliberal, late-stage capitalism allowed to run riot.
