    I am glad it has been pulled. To me it could give ideas to those that it is OK to be cruel for real. Animal abuse is horrible and leads to other violence. I am glad to see it gone

    Then the same thing could be said about call of duty and such that it is alright to kill people, or grand theft auto, that it is alright to steal cars and break the law. You dont see people doing that do you? How many times does it need to be said. Its a video game, get over it. Move on, dont play it.

    Look how sane and normal I am? Now listen to the flipping stuff I listen to:




    Don't assume cause someone does a specific something that they are a preset person, everyone is unique, and not every person who plays a game that has "suggestive content" is a mad maniac who runs around abusing dogs and people. I talk to a huge number of you on these forums, I try and use my best grammar and be as kind as possible, if you saw me listening to this music before we even talk, you might have thought that I am some sort of insane murdering serial ******. I am not. Assuming that the things I enjoy to do are signs that I might be a bad person or a criminal is common in judging someone, but in this case you have all gone too fair, it's a game. I still have this thing on my Xoom and enjoy it.

    To all you guys who like censorship and believe it prevents little children and young adults from turning into bad citizens, NEWS FLASH kids are rebellius! You tell em not to do something, they'll most likely wanna do it.

    The game wasn't pulled from the market. The devs pulled it because of issues. They will get it back up when they fix it.

    Now onto the question. I am a HUGE animal lover and own a pitbull. Dog fighting disgusts me and upsets me to no end. I despise it. The game itself though is pretty darn good. Its a rudimentary game with no violence just like Mafia wars and Dope Wars. I've played both and still have no ambition to kill,rob and sell drugs.

    In my opinion Google would have to pull Angry Birds as well if they were to pursue this. Killing Pigs should not be tolerated neither.

    I like the game and LOVE dogs. The only violence you see is a green bar that represents your dogs health being diminished. Your dog either wins or loses and you win some money. You go back to training him with tires and ropes, keep him fed and watered to get him back in shape and challenge the next guy. You can buy your dog steroid cycles and antibiotics to get him into fighting shape quicker too : ) No graphic images or anything. Its a game and a really fun game at that.

    Just my opinion folks.

    I like it when people get up in arms about the slightest violence towards animals, real or imagined, but don't say a word about violence towards fellow humans, real or imagined.

    [TANGENT BELOW]

    It reminds me of the PETA nuts who attacked people physically for wearing fur, sending the message that animal safety is more important than human safety. I'm sorry to disappoint the nuts but when my sister and her family ran into an escaped horse with their SUV, I cared about my family - not the horse or SUV.

    To me, this isn't a problem of animal cruelty. It's a problem with censorship. If you are trying to prevent us from playing a game that we enjoy, then where is our freedom? Sure there is always a question of "where do we draw the line" truth is we don't know where to draw any sort of line, too much censorship can also have the same effect as letting no censorship be there in the first place. I enjoyed this game, and I own a Yorkie Teacup, I don't want to turn into a dog killing machine.

    Again many of you are missing the point made by sonofaresiii. Google is a private company and has every right to determine what app they will and will not allow in the Market. This is not Censorship violating your Constitutional Rights. If you think it is... you are sorely mistaken.

    "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

    Google=Congress? No, hell no

    The government can not hinder Google from having Dog Wars on the market. But its Google's right to determine what they will have and wont have on the market, and its the right of individuals to protest to Google about the game. They have the right to boycott and economically pressure Google to remove the game as well. You in turn have the right to counter-boycott as well.

    As long as the government stays out of it... alls fair love and war. Including Dog Wars.

    This. You don't hear anyone complain because disney doesn't show southpark. Google has every right to keep their market clean, just be glad they don't do it like Apple. I'm not going to complain if they pull it, and I'm not going to complain if they leave it.

    Im not argueing that google doesnt have the right to control the content of their market. My problem with it is how everyone seems to be taking such offense to the game. Someone just commented in this very thread that this violent video game will lead people to believe its alright to be cruel to animals.

    I am an avid gamer, and i take a huge offense to such comments. Video games DO NOT make people violent, or kill. It is such a huge stereotype and it is wrong.

    I do not agree with the specific game in question. Honestly it disgusts me. But there is no need to start a literal war over it. There are games out there that are 10x worse then dog wars.

    ITS A GAME. GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON.

    You dont have to play it or download it. Thats the real beauty of it all.

    I am not a fan of animal fighting nor have I played this game, but I think it being pulled is wrong. It's a game, if you don't like it don't download it, it's not going to come back at night and haunt you. If you don't like it don't let it in your life, but if you wanna play have a good time. It's cruel, but for the last time it's a video game people.
    What if you are a business owner and you don't like it? Do you have a choice to not sell it? That seems exactly what Google is doing.

    Bravo Google!!!!!!!!!!

    The developer is free to produce the game.
    You are free to buy the game from the developer, if they choose to seel directly.
    Google is free to not sell the game.

    Seems like everyone has freedom.

    In the case of the Android Market the line is where Google decides it is because they are a private industry. This isn't that hard of a concept.

    It's a problem with people. People who believe they should force their opinion on to other people, instead of just letting Google know their feelings, pro or con, then moving on.

    Both sides need to realize that Joe Anybody doesn't really care what they think any more.

    I love hearing others' points of views and opinions. It can be interesting and informative. I don't expect that their POV will change my opinion and vise versa. But it is a way to learn, for me.

    I never bring up my animal rights or vegan lifestyle unless I'm asked. And most people who ask just want to make fun of it or defend meat eating. I'm not interested in that.

    But discussion can be good, and that's wheat forums are for. This thread included. Otherwise, AC would be dead.

    I let Google know I'd rather the game removed. I didn't start a thread or website about it. The person for the game did.

    By the way! http://forums.crackberry.com/f51/veg...ghlight=vegans

    Actually there is a huge difference between offense and disgust. Point in case you can be disgusted by something but yet not offended. It is very possible.

    Boycots, protests ... these are all legitimate and legal avenues of petitioning a company or government. You in turn have these same rights .... your feelings mean nothing unless you act upon them in the same recourse others have with who you disagree with.

    legal, yes. legitimate, not so much. its like the whiny kid who screams and moans until he gets what he wants. Its usually the minority *****ing and moaning until they get what they want because everyone is tired of listening to the noise.

    So you suggest the people take no actions, ever. Just sit idle and say, "it's whatever man."

    Great feats have been accomplished by groups of people protesting and taking action. Civil Rights ring a bell?
