This makes me happy I'm going to eat Brazilian tonight. You haven't lived 'till you've sanctioned the deaths of over a dozen animals with one meal. :D

It's probably more moronic advertising from EA to go along with its fake religious protests to Dante's Inferno and the Your "Mom" Hates This ad for Dead Space 2.

Well... to Sergeant Blackburn's defense he did try to shoo it away first, and the rat did bite. Also that there were terrorist running on top of him.. it was only fair. IRL people kill rats for much less.

Extremest should all die. If you feel so much passion about something that you can no longer use reason you should die. The world would be much better off without that crazy extremest NRA guy or Religious guy, republican guy, and most of all that PETA guy.

I would assume they want everyone to just sit in their homes and stare at a beige wall.

PETA needs to grow up and get a life, its pretty damn pointless to bitch about a rat being killed in a game, I mean, how stupid is that? Thanks for the laugh PETA by the way. I didn't see anybody moaning about in Call Of Duty you get to shoot, stab and break the dog's neck which is way worse than killing a rat in BF3.

There's another angle to this:

Who the hell plays BF3 for the singleplayer? Who even touches that?

I usually try the single player game. So far I've never made it through more than about 45 minutes or so of any Battlefield game. So basically I get about a quarter of the way through it and stop playing before I fall asleep. They bore me out of my skull.

Personally i think BF3 did a great job conveying the desperate situation that you are in behind enemy lines that you have to do what ever you must do to survive lol...

it's not like you have kill a rat while doing house chores

Fun thought of the day: If it were a poisonous snake or an insect of some type, (read: not a furry mammal) they wouldn't have an issue with it whatsoever.

Furthermore, you are not "forced" to click your mouse to kill the rat; it's merely something that happens in a cutscene.

What about red dead. You can kill a dog and skin it.
PETA didn't find a big problem with the skinning of animals in RDR due to the context and the time period the game was set in.

I really do think EA tipped PETA off to this for extra publicity...there are just too many games with comparable instances of animal slaughter that are not given attention to. We've been snapping dog necks in COD for years now.

I also wouldn't be surprised if PETA was paid to make the statement. I mean, EA wants more gamers to play their games, right? Why not create some controversy by the attention seeking outfits like PETA? PETA probably knows gamers are more likely to play the game if they make a negative statement about it. So... I just wouldn't be surprised either way.

I could of gone on forever so some are naturally left out but I haven't been lucky enough to of met Liberal guy or anarchist guy yet. But I have meet PETA guy who owned a leather couch I laughed at his stupid face.

Accompanied by the little fact that the statement's release coincided with the release of CODMW3...

It's a video game -- a story -- a fantasy -- NOT REAL.

Using this or any form of related logic means that the entire entertainment culture would need to be torn down.

I've played video games for 25 years - and not once have I ever shot up a school, picked up hookers, done drugs, or imitated anything I've seen in the virtual world. Probably because I'm smart enough to know it's a VIRTUAL world.

Let's say it was real life though - kill a rat vs give my position away and die myself? Yeah REAL hard choice there. Anyone who would chose to let the rat live at the cost of your own life has no grasp on the concept of survival of the fittest, or for war/life/death either.

Sometimes I really do wonder -- video games catch so much flak for this but if you ask me the PETA wackjobs are the ones living in the fantasy land and have no touch with reality of the world. (the reality of the world being that is can be cruel/mean/painful/and filled with death. Deal with it.
Anyone who does crazy shit then blames it on games, would have done crazy shit regardless. It's just an easy scapegoat. People used to be classified as nuts. Now they are victims.

They know nothing about gamers.

At the sight of a rat, we're more likely to scream like a little beech and run the opposite direction than to chase after it with a knife :rolleyes:

why get your panties in a bunch over it? who cares...

I finally clicked on this thread. All this time I assumed there was a mission where you had to kill a soldier that was ratting people out to the enemy. An actual rat? lol.
