If games include dogs and cats in their games, they should allow the player to pet them! I do not care if the dog looks like a horrible creature from Greek mythology, Cerberus is still a dog and I would like to pet the good boy (the Hades developers did let its players pet the Underworld dog, so good job!). But in general, most players would love to interact with pets and animals, even in the simplest ways (let me pet the dogs in Breath of the Wild, please). This mechanic apparently does not come easy. Check out Polygon’s Jenna Stoeber investigate how the petting mechanic is coded in games.
