I hate paganism ... What the hell Pocket God?

NFL Jerseys

The game's creators defended the game, saying "it depicts no specific race or nationality." Pocket God's programmer Dave Castelnuovo got in touch with one of the original Pacific Islanders and came up with some compromises: The islanders would be called Oogs instead of Pygmies, and the Moai statue would be replaced with a statue of an Octopus God.

Honestly, this is just a game...I don't know why people are screaming at it

To Chenjerai: sure, if you look close enough you can find problematic stuff anywhere.

As a piece of policy, it is assuredly imperfect, although some of the conservative and liberal criticisms alike have been based on misinformation and half-truths. It is principally a coverage bill, expected to extend insurance to 30 million Americans, rather than a cost-containment one, which would probably have required more fundamental alterations to the status quo's employer-based insurance system.

Thanks for the information. I have played the game and I liked it. Yes, the cartoon character is being tortured, that I really feel bad about.

I guarantee you that these people were or are going to look into some kind of lawsuit. It's the only thing Americans know how to do these days. Everyone HAS to find a problem with EVERYTHING

Next they're probably gonna sue call of duty 4 for having people from russia in it!

U SHOULDN"T CARE

I hate this crap! first, cheerios is accused of being a drug, and now this! all the idiots that are doing this can go sue brat dolls for looking like they use lip plumpers!

IT ISN'T RACISM, IT IS JUST OFFENSIVE PERIOD. WE'RE NOT FINDING IT TO POINT IT OUT, IT ALREADY IS.

WE WEREN'T CONCERNED AFTER IT FELL, IF IT WAS AN OFFENSIVE FROM THE BEGINNING, IT'S STILL A DAMN OFFENSE.

FOR THE FACT THAT PEOPLE WON'T EVEN ACCEPT THAT IS IT OFFENSIVE, AND WON'T ALLOW CASTELNUEVO TO ACCOMMODATE FEATURES TO UNDO THE WRONG FROM THE BEGINNING.

Jack Steele is great

You r totally right RacismisAStupidConcept... people just about find racism in everything. it is totally misplaced. In the words of Yahtzee: "A world where everybody can make a joke about another person and everybody laughs and doesnt go off on you, that is a perfect, racism free world...".

RacismIsAStupidConcept

To Chenjerai: sure, if you look close enough you can find problematic stuff anywhere. Such as... why is this page's background white? Why can't I set it to black? That's an insult to people of any other color than white. Give me a break. Enjoy the game, or don't. Nobody HAS to like it. You are FREE to not pay for it and not play it if it offends you.

Fuckoffpocketgodsgreat

Have any pacific islanders actually complained, or was it just ignorant Americans, who just want a lawsuit. It's not like it makes you wanna go and torture some polynesians anyway.

Chenjerai

Wow. Its interesting to me that nobody can look at the images in pocket god and acknowledge that their might be some problematic content their. God forbid anyone's fun be interrupted in order not to offend people.

william

people dont get mad over gta series. get over it people who are babies

Okie Pride

Notice that these people didnt call PG racist when it was at the top of the charts. They waited until it had fallen to a lower place and then attacked it hoping that less people would defend a less popular Pocket God. They were obviously very wrong. Pocket God has more supporters than ever and the people trying to hit PG while it is a little lower than it used to be are complete jerks.

Peja

It is so stupid to call Pocket God racist. I'm sure that every app in the iTunes store could be considered racist when it is looked at from the viwpoint of a douche.

James Mou

Honestly, I have to agree. This is such a horribly critical thing to say. I can understand trying to defend their nationalities and whatnot, but anything that has an animate object in it probably incorporates some kind of stereotype. I'm half Asian and half German, and the fact that someone can't handle a bone in a cartoons hair or a statue annoys me, considering how often people joke about communists and Nazis around me. I'm not complaining, why are you? Anyone can play the racist card, but if something really offends you, try using your words instead of throwing around meaningless phrases that once represented the image of violence and hatred. It's human nature to give something a label. No matter how tolerant you are, you still think about rice and slanted eyes when you think of Asians, and you think of Hitler and Nazis when you think of Germans. I'm not saying that racism is ok, I'm just saying, let humans do what's natural to them, this warped idea of racism is just a natural way of organizing and dealing with change.

What is the world coming to. Pocket God is a disgrace to mankind?...Look who's talking. These people degrade society into thinking that everything will be ok as long as sewing prevails over any moral stance of any race, religion, colour, background etc. These kind of people make me sick and should be ashamed of themselves for making mankind fear moral stances. I mean what happened to the good old days where people crowded round an iPhone just to watch generic islanders on a generic island be burned or eaten alive by ants?! As for the Moai statue or whatever don't even get me started. Ban the use of that and bang goes almost every Monopoly game ever made I mean it's not as if it is copyrighted or anything! Moral stances have been thrown to the trash and left for greed and false belief to decompose slowly and painfully. If a petition has to be signed so help me God I will fly from Scotland just to sign it. If my use of God in that last sentence offended anyone don't hesitate to email me at get-a-life@hotmail.com but don't expect a reply because your exactly the kind of person I have been talking about this whole time.

I guarantee you that these people were or are going to look into some kind of lawsuit. It's the only thing Americans know how to do these days. Everyone HAS to find a problem with EVERYTHING. And the racism card is by far the easiest one to play.

I agree with the author. Get over yourselves, and start enjoying life, rather than finding reasons to be pissed off.

I think the article should have a link to these two people for the public to write in and kindly and gently tell them how childish they're really being.

Doremi

some 'people' really have nothing better to do than trying to surmount their own utter insignificance by taking this kind of thing personally.
