Have I fallen into a pit of girly stereotypes, filled with Barbies and pink tiaras and dreams of becoming a Beauty Queen? Or is it a totally normal to want to own the upcoming Nintendo DS game Pony Friends?
I saw an ad for the game at EB Games today and can't stop thinking about it. Apparently, it's like Nintendogs...but with horses. You can have up to three ponies at a time, from standard breeds to "grow-your-own" versions. After raising your level by interacting with and training them, you get chances to buy new saddles, bridles and so forth. Eventually you can enter them in contests, but I think I'd prefer to take them out on walks and just groom them.
Here's a sample horse:
Look, you can even get designs for your horse!
So how many girl points do I gain from this admission, and how many cynical geek points do I lose?
Perhaps this threadless.com shirt will redeem my foray into the Pink Side. It's called "We Are All Pink":
