Online Petition of Grand Theft Auto V protesting Rockstar's treatment of animals in its latest game hits 84,000 signatures.
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.
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.
I like tipping cows.
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..
"I would honestly find it easier to kill another human in cold blood then to look a dog in the eye and kill him." Haha i agree, ive said the same thing for years.
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!
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
And I bet they've all played angry birds
And wheres the petition for Drugs, people cruelty and police brutality. Strange world we live in people can sign a petition for animal cruelty in a game and wont sign it for real animals.
If these morons put as much energy as they did into creating changes that benefit society then they would be productive. Its a video game get over it!
How sad some people's life's really are, it's a game ffs they are not real. Would you be happier if rockstar put this on there front cover. no animals were killed in real life in the the making of this GAME. Get a life.
That's not enough, they would need verification.
Rockstar, I'm gonna shoot an animal in the game EVERY DAY from 11/15 until GTAV is released on next gen and PC. Don't test me!
LOOOL What an idiot petition all the REAL animals that are dying out there, focus your energy there and stay away from virtual media.
meanwhile...at the slaughter house
GTA V is tame compared to Cabela's games, those are nothing but pure animal massacres.
That's right. Cabela is far more brutal than gta when it comes to animal cruelty but nobody ever petitioned against it...crazy petitioners really.
I love animals and I have gone through 4 dogs and I would never harm an animal in no way in real. However this is a GAME, VIDEO GAME. If 84.000 people can't understand the difference then I don't know ...
haha sorry for some reason when i read "have gone through 4 dogs" i was thinking you were a real bastard... In related news, you run over People all the time in GTA, if people are mad about animal cruelty, what about murder ???!!!
haha its cool man. And exactly! I said it once and i will say it again. These people don't mind that we can beat the hell out of a "human" *pixel* but they mind if we hurt "animals" *pixels* Now that kinda worries me a little...
Oh wow! This is a video game and there is no animal cruelty involved. In no mission are you forced to kill a dog or anything. Games shouldn't get the blame for allowing people to do stuff, it's the messed up people who are choosing to do stuff! Also, the main dog in the game is actually based on a real life animal cruelty event. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Get. A. Life.
Just LOL. This is totally ridiculous and hypocrisy at it's best. They aren't real animals and there are way more important animals to protect than digital dogs or even dogs in general... This is stupid.
like anything will happen over the petition. Everyone will still play anyways
Absolutely bonkers!!!! Having said that, I almost never kill animals in any game as I just hate the idea.......mowing down people, well that's just fine :) I remember when playing FarCry3 I had to do all the hunting in one sitting to get it out of the way so I could enjoy the rest of the game :) The idea that it promotes animal cruelty is the stupidest thing I have read for a good while!
Some people have no life. There's real nightmarish shit happening to people and aninals everyday in the real world but they choose to focus on pixel animal rights....
