Sure, he laughs at you when you miss, but so would anyone who was with you. He also catches and returns the duck to you. He ain't a bad guy. He's your dog! HE LOVES YOU!
Why does everyone hate the dog?
" @AjayRaz said:'fraid not. i simply searched "man fucking dog" on google and moving away from all the bestiality pornography links, i managed to find that video." @Drakhir said:That another one of your videos that you "stumbled across" or one your "friend sent you"? Bollocks mate. Fucking bollocks! "" I would have to disagree with the "MAN'S BEST FUCKING FRIEND" part. "this man begs to differ "
oh, the internet.
I actually based part of my coursework for my video games programming degree around Duck Hunt and I'm 100% convinced the reason people hate the dog is because he laughs at you every time you fail and in an annoyingly cartoony way. He may be your best friend as a duck hunter but all you really ever see of him is him jumping into the grass, showing you the ducks you shoot down and laughing at you and the annoyance of him laughing at you seems to far outweigh any light amusement brought across by him smiling and holding up disgruntled ducks.
The dog is an asshole. First he just sits in the grass. What dog sits in the grass doing no work? Second he laughs if you miss, EVERY TIME. He's just that arrogant although he can't even hold a gun. And third, he doesn't bring you the duck back. Have you ever seen him come back out of the grass? NO! He just smiles at you while holding the duck you just shot down and sinks back into the grass, keeping the duck for himself. Frickin dog.
Dog was cool! Loved his little 8 bit laugh, the way he tossed himself into the grass like he was Krypto the Super-Dog, and the reassuring way he held up the ducks after they were shot like "Here he is master! You da man, dawg!"
Of course everyone tried to shoot him, you can't give kids a video game controller shaped like a weapon and expect them not to act out on the first target they see. If you could play Super Mario Bros. with the zapper we'd have all tried to shoot Mario and he's the most beloved video game character of all time.
Anyone who says fuck the dog, I say fuck you! I say it with love and understanding but still,...you're a jerk.
