20,000 People Sign Petition in Spain to Ban Bull Fighting Video Game

Jon of RGN writes, "A game about bull fighting has a 20,000 signature petition against it in Spain and now censorship threatens to close the game development studio behind the title if it is not allowed to release. Financially, video games take years to make, most development studios have their entire future riding on each release.

Toro is being accused of promoting animal violence, however it is actually part of a long standing heritage and provides the virtual alternative to viewing these historical sports which the modern world now views as wrong and cruel against animals (which I totally agree with).

It’s a game, it’s not real and actually spares real bulls: who want a bullfight can go play instead of giving audience in the arena. Showing our future generations how barbaric man has been in the past allows them to learn how we have evolved and become a more civilized planet, while at the same time warning them of the dangerous of turning backwards on the road to evolution."

i think they should ban every game that shows or references eating chicken in it because i doubt they are Free Range.

I don't want games showing corn fields because it promotes GMO which according to my nutritional beliefs causes cancer and de-population which is equivalent to genocide except worse because it doesn't choose victims it hits everybody on Earth who eats corn.


But nah, it's actually about bull fighting in video games. Subscribe to me on matreon tonight. And stop punching steel beams because masculinity is dangerous for you and you're knuckles are literal physical proof.

AltairvsEzio1307d ago

IcedEarthaholic1307d ago

Hmmm....upon reading this in further detail, I'm actually a bit torn on it. On the one hand, it certainly opens our eyes to what many now consider a downright barbaric practice and the inner workings of said practice. But on the other hand, it could also be used to possibly promote this practice and bring it back to the limelight again. I am against animal cruelty myself, so the first instinct would be the agree and ban the game. But a valid point is made in the article of question, this could be a teaching tool if used in the right way, to show us how barbaric we truly were and at times still are.

Or, its just a game nothing more.
