Tiff is playing Fable II (one of two Xbox 360 games I got her for Christmas — how awesome is she?). She was very excited that, unlike the first Fable, she can play as a female character. (And she has a great in-game dog.)

But now she’s starting to hit the limits of that excitement: the clothing available to the character is apparently not female-fashionable. Women care about things like “this coat makes me look huge.” I bet the game designers didn’t anticipate that.
