Let me tell you about a topic that really really bothers me:
I remember reading somewhere that the reason mean pitbull dynamic exists in the original ohol game is a kind of personal crusade of Jason against the american pitbull terrier breed.
It seems Jason’s girlfriend was once attacked by a pitbull, this fact making Jason a crusader against pitbulls.
So, i am a proud pitbull mom
and obviously this thing makes me go mad.
I can assure you people have been mauled to death by dogs of every breed, except the very small one.
In real life, pitbulls don’t just “get mean” and maul people. Every dog, animal in general, and even your child from suburbia has a chance to hook up on a train of bad thoughts and end up going on a killing spree. Pitbulls are NOT the breed that attack people more often. Golden retreiver is! Know why? Because golden retreiver is the most widespread breed.
It is simple like that. Dogs have the ability to kill, just like humans, and, just like humans, given the right circumstances, they will kill.
Since You Are Hope is an indipendent endeavour from jason’s ohol, I think the developers should consider distancing themselves from such a bigoted and disinformed crusade against a breed of very energetic but sweet dogs.
My suggestion is extending the mean dynamic to all breeds, but only once a long staight shaft has been used on them. This will better simulate real life: there isn’t a dog breed that “will go mad”, but every dog will react if abused!
(Maybe this will need to be adjusted as to avoid griefing)
Sorry for the double picture of my absolutely not mean pitbull princess
