The milking game in 1-2-Switch is one of the package's highlights, offering plenty of scope for embarrassment, hilarity and dirty jokes, all in a safe family environment. However, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has taken issue with this segment of the title, claiming that it lacks realism and that it has "taken all the cruelty out of milking" (it clearly hasn't seen the game played in the Nintendo Life office).

PETA isn't a stranger when it comes to using Nintendo as a platform to gain recognition for its (very worthy) efforts to prevent the needless suffering of animals; it has previously used Pokémon to convince people to give up eating meat, for example.


Do you think PETA has a point here, and is the organisation simply being media savvy by using a big company like Nintendo to push its message? Should 1-2-Switch's milking game really be expected to give an accurate representation of all elements of the dairy farming process? Or should PETA realise that it's just a bit of fun, and perhaps focus its attention elsewhere?
