It’s time for a rant! So this week I got The Sims 3, one of my all time favorite video game franchises. I was so excited, because I try not to play often, because…well, I need to have a social life and I can play The Sims for like, 15 hrs straight. So I’m like all set to make my Sim, ready to give the virtual version of a huge fro, right? I mean, okay, so it’s stereotypical, but they at least usually have a fro, and I wasn’t expecting them to have a Sim with curly/coily hair like mine (maybe one day, I can dream!). But…no such luck! I couldn’t believe it…the hair styles to choose from were mostly either short/medium/long straight hair, a few with wavy hair (that I guess was supposed to be curly, womp…), one with like this ugly poofy hair…whatever, here are some examples:
Oh! And they had this horrible braided hairstyle…think like, Bo Derek in Ten. Pass on that. Now, I will say, they did have an option for a TWA, and that was what I initially picked. But, man! I wanted more hair!! I’ve worked hard to grow Izzy out, I didn’t even want to do a virtual BC! Sadly, I just decided to give my Sim a weave. 😦
For men, it didn’t get any better…just regular fades, OH, and cornrows (obviously)! Smh. No big ol’ Huey-esque ‘fro. I was saddened.
So what’s the deal, EA?! Something against curly hair? Or is it too many pixels?
