The dream of next-generation graphics has always been to most accurately recreate the real world on the computer. Sometimes, gamers, be careful what you wish for.

Recently, Twitter users rallied together to dunk on an angry gamer upset that Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn and the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West (releasing this Friday) has peach fuzz on her face like a normal human woman, though the user called it "a beard."

Many women (and men) have a little bit of hair on their face, called vellus hair or "peach fuzz." It's often thin and translucent, making it barely noticeable to the human eye.

Of course, this isn't the first time Aloy has been the target of gamer ire, as many expressed the Horizon Zero Dawn protagonist in the sequel Forbidden West appears too masculine compared with her first iteration. This led to a swarm of controversy last May over her redesign that left many people with negative impressions of gamers rolling their eyes. @9santy1's tweet revived that sentiment, as seemingly all who came across the translated screenshot of their tweet took a shot at him to the effect of him never having seen a woman.

At the very least, gamers are now aware that humans have vellus hair. For his part, @9santy1 appears to be reveling in the storm he caused, as he's been retweeting articles about the controversy and is now trying to play it off like he baited bozos epic style.
