It sucks when humans kill polar bears in real life, but it’s awesome when polar bears kill humans in video games…or so says PETA.

The animal rights group recently gave their blessing to two “animal-friendly” Adult Swim flash video games: Polar Bear Payback and Tofu Hunter.

In Polar Bear Payback, players take on the role of angry polar bears who massacre seal hunters a la Tarantino gore. In Tofu Hunter, participants kill tofu-based creatures that elicit grand dramatics when slaughtered.

“By portraying the killing of animals for sport, food, or fur in a negative way, these games encourage players to give animals a break and stop eating, wearing, and shooting them,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “Kudos to Adult Swim for recognizing that concern for animal rights has moved squarely into the mainstream.”

So pleased were they with the games, the animal organization presented Adult Swim with the PETA Proggy Award for Most Animal-Friendly Gaming of the Year.
