There is a link to the android market, and to google for supporting it

My messages are sent.<br>
I'm also looking for other points of contact for both Android and Google.<br><br>
I hate to play Devil's advocate for a second here. But as I'm typing out my strongly worded messages, and can't seem to figure out how this is any different from the games that involve killing people, doing drugs, killing police, moving stolen property. Having a game that involves committing a crime as part of the game-play is nothing new, and its totally legal.<br><br>
This goes back to the argument regarding whether or not game violence encourages real life violence. I'm making my protests against the game, but I'm not very optimistic about it getting pulled off the market.

i hear you. But at least they may hear a lot of angry animal lovers and anti dog fighting people voice their concerns. I believe the "shaken baby" got removed though. It's possible, I guess.

Disgusting. In regards to whether or not violent video games result in violent behavior, does it even matter? Why would any well-adjusted, mature person want to even simulate dog fighting, shooting people, doing drugs, etc? There are plenty of fun video games out there that aren't violent in nature.

Hazelnut, not sure if it was ever even released or not, but yes.<br>
sequoia, you've got me. How could anyone even want to play it. Why would a game developer want to develop it? UNLESS....there was personal interest. Even if I could program, do you think I could create a flight simulator? No way....have to have experience, or knowledge.

Really? A shaken baby game? I used that in my analogy, as in--"you wouldn't have a shaken baby game..."<br>
At least in games involving people, people have voices, and a legal system, animals don't.

All about demographics. There's a big chunk of consumers who ARE NOT "well-adjusted, mature" people and sometimes we... I mean they... just need to blow up some virtual cars when they get home from work.

Perhaps it's for the same reason Cabela's (a huge hunting supply chain store) distributes big game hunting videogames. To attract the youngsters into the "sport".

Hazelnut, I think you make a good point. While I understand the argument that it's not okay to let society condone this kind of action through the existence of the video game, it's still not really worse than anything in Grand Theft Auto. If you can kill people in video games- even so far as killing innocents in most recent Call of Duty release- then why is this ringing alarm bells? I think this is a little more ethically complicated than it looks.
