"Google Shoot View" Pulled, Popular with Sick Bastards
After the Flash game debuted last week, "Google Shoot View" has been pulled. Created by Pool Worldwide. it let players type in any address, then drop them into a Google Street View location, and let them shoot at people standing around. Needless to say, the new app has drawn considerable controversy.
One group, however, voiced their protest of the game cancellation. One gamer posted, "speaking as a really sick bastard, I enjoyed having the option of killing real people, if only as a simulation. But really, what else can you do in prison?" Another gamer posted, "this is so badass! We should have more games like this! I am so glad I stopped taking my medication!"
Google issued a statement earlier today apologizing profusely for the release of "Shoot View". "Apparently, not only are there sick f**ks who enjoy this type of game worldwide, but also ones who work for Google."
