Now I know what’s behind all the BCG chat about working super hard ;)

Only joking - hope you have the chance to enjoy yourself.

If you like strategy and have a PC then the Total War series is nuts. Otherwise Breath of the Wild

If you’re an introvert like I am, building your own island on Animal Crossing: New Horizons has literally saved my life.

Agreed. I’ve played all Animal Crossings up until now, just because it’s really therapeutic for me at times.

When they released New Horizons on the switch, I freaked.

I play mostly on Xbox but both PC and iOS are also great. Its so cheap I have all three hahah. I think PC would be preferable to a first time player but if you would play more on iOS, then go for it! It’s such a calming relaxing game, I really like it.

I recently found an opening for a similar role (paid social buying) that is fully remote (major plus) but is at Activision Blizzard. I'm super conflicted- they've been under SO much controversy (100% their fault) but I'm also sick of my current job (no WLB), and have always been interested in this industry. Does anyone know what it's like to work there now?
