    Say the Crunchy Chick in its Fable 2 form but use a picture from Fable 1.

    Does the space hamster in mass effect 3 count? Okay you didn't get to skin or eat it but you did have to chase it! (Or stand at the right spot and just hit the button like a mad man)

    Tanooki imitation = Tanooki mass murder Makes sense. Hopefully Peta will make one about Koopa slaughter in the future, as there seems to be far more killing of those.

    maybe now Nintendo with legally sodomize Peta and put an end to all this non sense. i am not for animal Slaughter... but this is ridiculous! do we tell you to stop when you are slaughtering innocent radishes for food? Shame on you PETA

    Now I've really got to buy a 3DS just so that I can play MGS:3DS. I never like Yoshi.

    Holy crap that baby seal clubbing joke crosses the line so far that travels all the way back around and then crosses the line again making it actually disturbingly funny to me. ...I think I have problems.

    Nice list. Does seem like a pretty prevalent thing when you think about it. I sometimes felt bad hunting ANY animal weaker than me when playing Tokyo Jungle as a predator. You'd sometimes see little groups of rabbits hopping around, or chickens with a group of chicks just minding their own business. Ideally you wouldn't want to kill them because you know they aren't a threat, but you're forced to do it once you start getting hungry, even when you know they barely fill the hunger bar back up. It seems fine to kill something bigger than you, though, because they're actually a danger. That's why humans hunting animals seems slightly more wrong compared to animals hunting other animals, because humans artificially increase their strength by using weapons. Or something like that. People seem to think we have this right to dominate which is an utter fallacy.

    Couldn't agree more.

    I think this is a slippery slope myself. Kids play a lot of these games and they encourage this kind of behaviour in-game, meaning that kids will assume it ok if they see a chicken in a coop, or even deer in the woods. Games need to be aware what they are putting forward and of their target audience. Frankly, I sold Farcry 3 because of that very thing. I refused point blank to do it. Also, Overlord 2 was b*ll*cks and not even the "drum up publicity by controversy" angle could save it. Gd riddance, I say.

    I really hope this comment is poking fun, and not serious.
  • Bloodstorm - October 11, 2013 7:44 a.m.

    I clubbed those baby seals, and I laughed maniacally while doing it!!! Because I was the Overlord!!! Also, it was Overlord II, and not the original Overlord, and it was pretty much the first thing you did in the game, clubbin' baby seals.

    For extra fun, track down the song "Seal Clubbin'" by Half Man Half Biscuit, and sing along while you're doing it :)

    I discovered that you can pick up rabbits and hurl them to their deaths over the cliffs in Dragon's Dogma, which my wife found horrifying despite the fact she's perfectly happy to hack zombies into little pieces in the Dead Island games. Naturally I do it all the time now just to wind her up ;)
  • GR_AndyHartup - October 11, 2013 7:49 a.m.

    Ha - had no idea you could do that. Not played Dragon's Dogma actually.
  • antiAntag0nist - October 11, 2013 7:28 a.m.

    I couldn't eat a Crunchy Chick in Fable 2, I'd rather kick fully grown one in the arse.
  • GR_AndyHartup - October 11, 2013 7:33 a.m.

    Did you get the 'Chicken Chaser' nickname for that?
  • antiAntag0nist - October 11, 2013 8:44 a.m.

    Definitely. It was a badge of honor, all chickens would come to fear the Chicken Chaser!
  • robotic-fiend - October 11, 2013 7:06 a.m.

    Why would you give PETA any attention at all?
  • Javriel - October 11, 2013 9 a.m.

    They're a worldwide organisation that have a lot of clout. To ignore them would be pretty dumb from a business point of view. If they get on you, you need to either retract a game or justify it. They're pretty lax about games in general, which makes their interventions even scarier for developers.
  • Swedish_Chef - October 11, 2013 9:41 a.m.

    Unless you're Team Meat in which case PETA getting angry at you was just part of the plan and you're actually utilising them as a way to get free, widespread publicity for your game. Truely an example of trolling in it's finest form.
