An uncomfortable realization wrt Dragon Age DLC.

“Getting a new item pack for your Dragon Age 2 characters” is pretty much semantically equivalent to “buying new dresses for your dolls,” isn’t it?

I know, I know: they’re not dolls, they’re action figures.

…and I don’t know where that quote comes from.  Toy Story? Small Soldiers?

    Um, you mean a friend of yours did that, right? RIGHT?

  • Neil Stevens says:

    Pretty sure that quote comes from a real life toy company boardroom in the 60s, when figuring out how to market dolls to boys.

  • Michael N. says:

    According to IMDB, it’s something called “Boys With Toys”, which appears to have been a documentary in 1999. I suspect the phrase went viral in some circles not long afterward, or that some other folks had been using it before, but quick Googling doesn’t get anything earlier.

    Jimmy Neutron. I have kids, so it’s not nerdy for me to know that.
