PETA Names Fable 2 “Most Animal-Friendly Video Game” in Proggy Awards

Posted by | January 7, 2009

Oh, this is cute. PETA, everyone’s favourite outdated reactionary treehugging convocation, holds their own awards for animal-friendly companies, products, services, entertainment and so on called the Proggy Awards. Fable 2 got the nod for Video Games, since it promotes an agenda where vegetables and tofu help make your character slim and powerful, while eating meat “makes your character fat and evil.” I’m certain the fluffy widdle puppy isn’t he so smart and adorable awww didn’t hurt, either.

Fable 2 is an interesting game, no doubt, and worth checking out if you’re into building up a character and buying your way into nobility while banging an undead mistress. Somehow, though, I don’t think promoting vegetarianism was one of the designer’s goals, and PETA is just seeing what they want to see.

You can check out the whole Proggy affair at the PETA website.

    Wait.. what?

    And eating small crunchy chicks, and – let’s not forget – the Achievement-Linked ability to kick grown chickens off a tall cliff with the tap of the x button are totally ignored?

    I’ve seen the chickens explode in feathers and blood after I kicked them to a spot they couldn’t get out off.

    I honestly don’t think they’ve played this game enough.

    Hah, MathijsBuster, I hadn’t heard of that one.

    Then again, PETA is probably not well known for their game review skills; and now I’m going to go kick a chicken off of a cliff to see what happens.
