You can now add top-surgery scars, binders and hearing aids to your ‘Sims’ characters
Life simulation game “The Sims 4” has taken a few steps forward in imitating real life.
“Love the new medical wearables,” another person tweeted. “This means a lot to us disabled simmers. More of this please!”
The move has also proven controversial.
Some Twitters users have called the addition of top-surgery scars irresponsible in a game played by children.
Others have suggested that in a game where players can drown their Sims, starve them or embarrass them to death, the latest additions seem like a strange thing to object to.
Players can already choose and change their characters’ gender and sexual orientation.
“I never get the hate for adding more inclusive options for character customization. They are options. You don’t have to include them for your character, no one is forcing you to,” another commentator tweeted.
