I’m not sure what exactly it is about Far Cry 5 that seems to attract all the different Social Justice factions. Just last week, a Vice journalist was complaining about the video game having too many black people. Now, the People for the Ethical treatment of animals (PETA) has issued out a press release criticizing the game’s treatment of animals.
Peta’s German division is pleading with the developers of Far Cry 5 to stop marketing their game to the German population, until they fix how animals (fishes in particular) are treated in the game. According to the press release, Peta wants video games that contain “free-living animals that do not glorify killing as a pastime.”
Since the original press release was written in German, I had to seek the help of Google Translate and a friend to translate to English. Not sure why, but the translated texts just sound hilarious.
