Sigh, they aren't real. Worry about real life cruelty to real life animals, not pixels.Some people are so pathetic. 84,000 to be precise.

"running over a helpless kitten" and "beheading animals."

LOL, both of things are not included in GTA5. People signing things they don't have a clue about, typical videogame ignorance as usual.

"This petition holds no power over the actions of Rockstar Games."

That sentence from the article alone is all everyone should read.

"We need to boycott/ban games that has animal cruelty; and while we're at it, books, movies, and even music!" It's a video game, last time I checked there was this thing called "Freedom of choice" which you choose to play GTA 5, you don't "have to" but you "want to." Also if you don't want to shoot animals in game, you don't have to. Only one mission I can think of (random encounter) even says to shoot wild animals for protection of the community; so explain how that's animal cruelty?

I swear the ignorance of some people; anything to get 15 minutes of fame.

84,000 idiots have nothing better to do??? Go adopt or rescue an animal for fu!k sake and make an actual difference in this world instead of just complaining about dumb shit.

I bet most of them give likes on Facebook to "help" the needing.

You can run over a cat in GTA5? I did this constantly to people. Damn, I've spent more than a hundred hours on this game and have been playing it incorrectly.

I'm an animal lover, but these people are ridiculous.

husomc1761d ago

what about cruelty to people in that game :D dumb animal loving c**ts

Yeah, funny how it's almost never complaints over human rights. These people really need to get a life. I'm mean if you really want to help animals donate to ASPCA(screw peta) or volunteer at an animal shelter. Don't just sign a lame petition that involves animals that aren't even real after all.

Why aren't they suing the dev's of Duck Hunt ?

Because there is no money or publicity whoring in that.

I love real animals. Now that I've said that, I'm gonna go run over a bunch of wild animals on GTA. They're not real people, get over it.

ThatCanadianGuy5141761d ago

These guys are too much.I mean, i get it, i love animals too.

I would honestly find it easier to kill another human in cold blood then to look a dog in the eye and kill him.

But these aren't real animals...
These petitions are from the same fanatics you see all up in arms raving because some guy films a youtube video bathing his cat.And how the water is causing stress and heartach to the poor, defenseless cat..

A cat on the other hand...

Just kiddin'

That's because us humans are nothing but a bunch of f*cking trolls getting under each others skin. Cute animals, on other hand, much harder to run off the side of the road.

80,000 people like hugging trees whilst they f*ck sheep?

thats how I read the title anyway..... this world has way too many idiots heres hoping the next pandemic is a good one!

piratescott1761d ago

The ignorance and judgement of some people is just shocking, it's like when people say if you see someone get killed on TV you'll go out and do it yourself, they're not real, and it wont influence people to do it. Have they made a petition against angry birds yet?

Bet 90% of signers are also members of PETA

Monolith1761d ago

And I bet they've all played angry birds
