One video game I hope sees very few sales – greyhound racing

I’m not going to link this game site or report the name of the game in question. I don’t want to promote it in any way, shape or form.

I found a link on my daily news feed to a greyhound racing video game. The announcement was for version two of the game. How – not nice. Apparently, the player breeds, trains and bets on the greyhounds. How … sick.

What will we see next? – Michael Vick’s dogfighting game? Or maybe one where the players run their own puppy mills?

I hope very few people are actually going to spend money on this promotional product.

  1. Hi Tom,

    I totally agree. It’s putrid.

    Here’s one of the ‘features’ the game is stated to have:

    ‘Realistic racing with bumped, impeded and blocked dogs.’

    Are you kidding me?!?
    Does ‘realistic’ include dogs snapping their necks and legs, having heart attacks and heat stroke, getting smashed by the lure, getting trampled by other dogs and cartwheeling across the track at 40+ miles per hour???

    And I guess if it did, it wouldn’t matter much to anyone stupid enough to purchase such a piece of crap.

    Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. 🙂
