Great so now I can't shoot dogs because it's cruelty to animals, can't shoot Zombies in Africa because it's racist, can't play Animal Crossing because I'll be considered a pedophile...

What's next?

techie3072d ago

You'll be called a racist dog killing paedophile?

this report has made me drown puppies.... see what you did peta, CAN YOU SEE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!?!?

in real life of course,cruelty to animals causes pain and suffering,which nobody wants to see.
but to complain about killing a virtual animal,which can feel nothing and has no form of intelligence (albeit more than PETA's) is just stupid.
Elect me for world president,and i shall pass a "common sense" law.

Of course, if a game existed where the only purpose of the title was to rip a cat apart for enjoyment, I'd be up in arms about it (virtual or otherwise).

But as I write in the article, these are historically accurate attack dogs and you are acting in self defense, during a simulated war. What do PETA expect you to do? Throw bloody Frisbees at them!

Still, as you can read for yourself, that's not the only issue with their view on this...

As someone who has a dog, and a dog that I've personally rescued from the jaws of a pitbull, I know all too well how repulsive cruelty to animals can be

That said, this is a game. Attack dogs are an HISTORIC part of warfare and were quite prevalent during WWII (as I believe this article accurately mentions).

My point is: if we're going to play adult games that are meant for ADULTS then we can't shy away from certain parts of war that we are uncomfortable with.

Shooting animals in war happened a lot. As did torture, driving over people in tanks, collateral damage and other heinous actions that are all part of the horrors of war.

If you don't want to play a war game where you can be subjected to strong imagery - don't play them.

PETA, who I am normally a supporter of, have really lost the plot on this one and are basically attacking one particular medium as being reprehensible simply because they are completely ill-informed.

And the Nintendogs references were cringeworthy. For that reason alone I'm off now to eat some veal. Take THAT PETA!
