Danny Trejo’s favourite video game is absolutely not what you’d expect

It’s rare these days to see wholesome content on Twitter, but yesterday we were surprised and delighted to see actor Danny Trejo tweet about his favourite game. And that favourite game is not at all what we’d expect it to be. Something big and loud and shooty, we’d have thought. But no. Danny Trejo’s favourite video game is Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

We cannot overstate the joy we feel when we picture Mr Trejo selling his turnips on a Sunday morning, or gathering apples from a tree. Does he feel the same way about Tom Nook as the rest of us? Does he enjoy listening to the music of K.K Slider on an evening? We have so many questions, and the prospective answers are making us grin.

Danny’s no stranger to video games. While he hasn’t tweeted about them all that much, he has starred in them, along with advertising campaigns for them. He was in an ad for Evil West back in 2022 and, amongst others, he’s provided voicework for Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Crime Boss: Rockay City, Fallout: New Vegas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Really, though, Danny loving Animal Crossing: New Horizons isn’t that much of a surprise. Back in 2020, shortly after the game’s launch, he shared a tour of his New Horizons Island with The Washington Post. There, it was revealed that it was actually his son Theo who got him hooked on the game. We’re just happy that, four years later, he’s still finding joy in hanging with those cute animals. Wholesome AF.
