    Why would you give PETA any attention at all?

    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.

    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.

    This.

    I don't really think game developers care at all about what PETA says about their games. It's not like accusing someone of being murder for wearing fur or even eating meat. A game where you go around and snap animals necks is still less harmful to animals than killing a single fly. PETA's thoughts on games, an essentially ethereal universe where nothing is really dying, means nothing.

    I totally agree with this. I happen to be vegan (as is my husband) and neither of us can stand PETA. At this point, they do nothing but further the stereotype that those who consider themselves animal rights activists are batsh*t crazy. I'm a huge animal lover, I've been vegan for a decade now, and yet I love hunting games. I'm also a huge fan of Overlord games. Clubbing baby seals? Yeah, they're cute, but the audacity of the game for taking that outrageous phrase and making it a virtual reality was both humorous and admirable, in my opinion. PETA making this ignorant claim that killing animals in video games will make people recreate it in life is no different than those saying that if you enjoy gunning innocents down in a game you will do it in real life. Video games are meant to be a virtual reality; in them, you are supposed to have fun doing that which you would never do in life. PETA's thoughts on video games means nothing. Their thoughts on all things mean nothing. To me, at least. Until they begin to spread their message through respect and intelligence rather than fear mongering, hate, and shock value, I would hope everyone, from industries to individuals, pay them no mind.
