Hi Phil,

I have no disagreement with you when it comes to real life, but I can't agree that the same is true for games. If I can kill a man in a game, I can kill a monkey. I might place a rating on this game stating that it is not suitable for younger audiences, however.


Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

Hi Philip,
I see a distinction between killing adult humans and monkeys.
Killing monkeys is like killing human children and babies.
Most of them are considered not aggressive and not as smart as adult humans.
It is good that you don't have to kill them to win the game.

Hi Phil,

Personally I don't see this as a problem. You kill humans in games all the
time, and that's just as harmless as killing monkeys since in both cases,
it's obviously not real. You do not need to kill the monkeys in this game,
but you can. So if people don't want to, they don't have to. I think this
very much falls in the category of having to tell the difference between
real life and games, whether it be when killing humans or monkeys or
wolves etc.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

Hi Philip,
Many people would object to the killing of monkeys in a game.
That is unless they could attack and harm you.
The same would apply to dogs and cats.
That is why in Monkey business, you can only net them and in Shades of
doom
the dogs are mutant and will attack you.
If you want monkeys in the game you could say they were carrying a disease
like rabies.Phil
