It's weird how bad I feel about killing animals in the game, so much so that I skin everyone I have killed for challenges etc so as if it's not a waste lol. I will activly try and shoot guys off horses instead of just shooting the horses and will fire warning shots if im being chased by wolves. Maybe it's something to do with how well animated they are and that when you kill them they die in such a sudden and realistic fashion (the beaver squeal is the worst) or maybe it's because I used to hunt in real life but feel bad about the amount of animals I killed needlessly.
Feel bad about killing animals?
The first time I killed a horse I laughed my ass off at the way it fell over. Not that I'm a dick to animals in real life (I have a mini-farm and love all my animals and love wild animals) but when it comes to video games I find it funny, as well as badass when I kill cougars and wolves chasing people.
I didn't mind slaughtering the masses of bandits and the occasional marshal, but I honestly felt bad when I ran over a rabbit. Mind you, I jumped off, finished him off, and skinned the poor bastard. The first things I did in the game really was the hunting stuff, though I made sure I skinned everything and only killed the things I needed. Christ, I'm turning into a hippy.
" Man if you think RDR is bad, try playing MH3. Most of the poor critters are just minding their own business, and it's your task to slaughter them all. I, personally, couldn't care less, but I bet some PETA folks must be flippin' dicks over it. "But they become super happy when a cougar ninjas a player.
i dont feel bad killing anything in a game ever. Note if you shoot dogs, and horses john will make comments like whats wrong with me? I dont know why I did that. And im a bad man. Not sure if live stock like cows or chickens count. i ran around just shooting horses in the hopes that if I killed them a black fast horse would be respawned/be found faster. I prob shot about 40 horses. Never got that damn mount >.>
If an animal attacks you, kill it. If you attack an animal you disgust me.
Answer to the question: Its not real! : It's not the killing so much that makes me think people who do it are scum,its the "durr,an animal, shoot it ha! it fell over". In a game a human can through storytelling(his actions,character), become an enemy. An animal is always innocent, with the exception of the cougars who from all reports are a menace. In the quick look Brad really offended me with the casual way he handled it , "Durr, animal not causing any harm, killing it will be fun, Durr....."
