The Last of Us Part II is pretty violent even toward dogs. Most players will murder a ton of canines over their journey and Naughty Dog mulled over adding in an option that cut that out of the game.
good thing they left it in. This is a post apocalyptic world where everything is for survival. Who care if PETA flips out.
If they stopped wasting time on digital animals they might actually save more real animals.
SJW whiny syrup removal
Honestly, I would probably rather them waste time on digital animals than real ones. At least the digital ones don't end up getting killed by PETA "good" deeds
Those dogs would maul you in a heartbeat. PETA can kiss my ass if they think I'm not going to defend myself against a dog attacking me. Luckily, this is a video game, and no dogs were harmed in the making of it, nor does shooting a digital puppy mean that you are hurting real animals, nor does it promote hurting animals in any way.
Yep. Dogs are awesome and all, but these fake dogs are trying to bite my face off. I'm going to defend myself and not get worked up over it.
If it makes PETA feel better, I like the dogs better than their human trainers.:)
Tons- about 5-10 throughout the entire journey 🤷🏻♂️😂 not every enemy has a dog. Normally 1-2 per group and this isn’t in every group you encounter.
it's only the WLFs that have them.
Not even sure there are more than 3-4 encouters with dogs. There were a couple with the last faction there in the end. 2 I think.
I’m glad Neil didn’t cave in and added that option. It’s funny how unspeakable violence against other humans are completely okay in games but once you touch animals some people would consider such an act as going too far.
I agree but I cant blame them.. Have you seen humans lately?
Have you seen pitbulls lately?
@canadianturtle Dog bite deaths are a statistical anomaly. You're more likely to be struck by lightning than die to a dog, and this is including all dogs, not just pitbulls. The pitbull hysteria is largely driven by emotion, not data. Humans take on voluntary risks daily, for instance, a swimming pool is also more likely to kill your child than pitbulls, but no one is crusading against swimming pools. *shrug*
@zero I love how you delivered this comment
@zero >emotion not data https://blogs-images.forbes... Sure thing bud
It's because dogs are better than people.
Your character should instead have the option to pet them and rub their bellies. That way, no digital doggos need go to (digital) heaven.
Your character can pet them, throw balls, toys, and kill them too! Did you just start the game or haven’t played yet?
Haven't played it. I meant petting them instead of killing.
I hated killing the dogs. I love dogs but I understand it’s not a big deal to kill a digital dog
The dogs in this game are also treated with compassion and love. Dogs exist in the world and nothing is safe.
I’m glad they left it, if it wasn’t for the previous kills of dogs. I wouldn’t have understood the death of the dog at the aquarium and wouldn’t of had the regret afterwards.
What the hell with these stupid shit? You kill human, no problem You kill dog, problem This is a violent videogame and is already rated so. If you don't like it, go play Mario and Spiro
Dog Lives Matter.
all animals matter
Killing dogs = bad Killing humans = good
What a ridiculous world. IT'S A VIDEO GAME ATTACK DOG. I'm killing it.
N4G went to the dogs
This is cool. I would prefer not to kill the dogs, but on survival mode I had to take care of them first as they were more of a threat than the humans.
Seeing how vocious those dogs are, even a dog loving person such as myself has a hard time empathizing with those things in TLOU
Who cares. We kill chickens, horses, cows, lions, and other wild animals all the time in video games. Dont forget we kill humans too lol.
The fact people are getting that upset over it shows the level of love and detail that goes into ND's craft. I don't remember seeing this much upset dog talk surrounding Wolfenstein games or Call of Duty.
It is amusing that the dogs will only attack Ellie and not Abby.
Well they probably know Abby as they were trained by the WLF.
But luckily you can still slaughter and inflict suffering on as many humans as you can possibly want
LOL a dog is as evil (or good) as their human tells them to be. The people who act like dogs are always the front lines of violence.
People are so weak that it's irritating
O my God bear looks so cute in that photo
Besides the series being overrated. It’s a video game not real life .
I fucking hate 2020.
