EA Patents Direct Character Customization

I guess they hand out patents for anything these days.

U.S. Patent No. 10,275,947 (the ‘947 Patent) relates to simulation video games. Simulation video games are games designed to simulate aspects of real life or a fictional reality as close as possible. A notable example in this genre is the game The SIMS. In this game a player can create a character and configure its appearance by changing its body type, physical attributes, clothing, or accessories.
