PETA urged gamers to: "take your 'dogs' for a lovely walk around the lake", "persuade mercenaries not to exploit horses", "observe wildlife from a safe and respectful distance", "check out an animal sanctuary", and "spend a peaceful moment with amazing animals"

In addition to PETA's list of recommended gameplay activities, the organization included real advice to people like, "remember if 'sanctuary' offers hands-on experience, it's not legit" and "go vegan".
The organization has a long history of irritating people due to its provocative marketing techniques but many found their Elden Ring list humorous.
Now that's how animal rights activism in gaming should look like. People are playing games to have fun, so you get way more people to think about it, when you deliver the message in a fun way as well. Good job, Peta!
