“Some of the human qualities of The Sims didn’t come out until women started working on it,” Bradshaw said. “It wasn’t until we added kids and relationships that things changed. It became more about these little human beings, these ‘Sims,’ rather than just the objects in their lives.”

No doubt about it, The Sims has appealed to many women worldwide.  In fact, I don’t know of that many dudes that play the game in real life other than the people I met at various Sims events.  But I can’t complain, as it’s pretty cool to find a girl gamer that’s into the games that you like.  Problem is, I haven’t came across any locally!
