A Nice Story, For Once

Posted: September 16, 2011 by Keith Stone in hockey, NHL, video games

14-year-old Lexi Peters loves video games and hockey. While playing one of EA Sports’s NHL games, she hoped to use the customize mode to recreate the girls’ team she played for. However, the game only allowed players to create men. Lexi wrote a letter to EA Sports and in this year’s version of the game, not only are women characters available, but she’s the default model. Pretty cool stuff.

Maybe if I wrote a letter to the creators of Mortal Kombat, I could be a character. My only move would be throwing unopened cans of beer at my opponents and my fatality would be writing disparaging blog posts about them. Flawless victory.
