I'm personally disturbed -- no, disgusted is the appropriate word -- by how the devs apparently think that plants and herbs are only their to be plucked from the ground and turned into potions for our use.

How narcissistic we are! The gameworld does not revolve around us, people!

I consider this game to be done medium well. I tend to show my grill when I think about how much fun I have. If things were right with the world people would be (barbe)queuing up at gaming stores to purchase this. I'd steak my reputation on it.

Dear OP in the future please start your sentences with: As a hypocrite, ....

Within this thread you will see illustrated for your elucidation the effects toxoplasma gondii can have on the once-rational human mind.

"I like Justin Bieber" is an opinion. "I don't like animal cruelty" is an opinion. That you find the posted quote disgusting is an opinion. But "this game presents a detrimental message about animal cruelty" is a proposition... one which you are not defending.

So don't be surprised if people give you grief.

I'm beginning to believe that it is a troll attempt. I was willing to give some benefit of the doubt initially, but now....

Did you find killing dozens of humans disgusting too? What about undead? Orcs? Demons? Surely demons have rights too!

so are all animal-based food sources in the game like meat etc. equally condemnable? someone killed an animal in order to procure these as well, right?

noone likes animal cruelty, but if in real life it were possible to save a human life by killing a toad i'm pretty sure that 99.9% of people would do it without hesitation (and that is a GOOD thing). people like you (the OP of this thread) are the reason that worthwhile foundations and efforts against animal cruelty have gotten a bad name and/or aren't taken as seriously as they should be.

I think his point is that it is fine to slaughter everything (humans, trolls, orcs, ...) as long as you let the toad live.

Wow if it is that bad I'd say -8 overall due to writing, I pretty much instantly stop any game that makes my brain hurt. You are too kind.

Just wanted to point out that you probably meant "animals", not "living things". If you want to get a point across I'd advise you to take great care in picking the right words. Many discussions I had with all kind of activists fell short when they seemed to show a lack of a proper scientific understanding of the world.

Just wanted to come in to say that I understand where you're coming from, prodigy. Parts of the dialogue could certainly stand to be more "in character" and consistent.

That said, the character in question does seem to be rather maniacal and unconcerned with life in general (hence those, um, self-aware killing machines he likes to create). At the same time, another dialogue option/response to that statement would be a good addition.

And while I'm certainly not going to waste my day in an internet argument, I do feel that sometimes it helps for others to know they're not totally alone on a given issue. ^_^y

Generally, a notebook goes in your pocket, doesn't it? Give that notebook its own pocket. . . . in that pocket, put another notebook. . . .

This is absurd. Like any game, there are people of good morality, people of obviously poor morality, and people of questionable morality. Nowhere in the game are the devs endorsing animal cruelty, so get off your high horse and stop being offended so easily.

Thank you!

I give you a screenshot and you still say "nowhere in the game". This pretty much summarized the thread.

You want to deny the facts? Well, it's your choice.
