I loved the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and wanted to try the new iteration on the PS3. While I was certainly able to customize my skater, I wasn't allowed to create a female skater! Screw that. I'll just find a copy of the original and play as Elissa Steamer then. At least she's effing female!
No, I didn't even get into the gameplay. Having a female avatar is very important to me in any game that allows customization, and it's a dealbreaker for me.
