Why No Video Games for Dogs?

I read today that David Swhimmer is contesting the R rating of his movie, Cyber Predators. I thought that movie was already out and titled Tron Legacy. My humans went to see the movie, Tron Legacy. In the movie, a couple of humans were trapped in a video game world. The other "people" there seemed to always be attacking them--at least that is what the humans said about the movie. I don't think you can get any better cyber predators than the ones on Tron so why bother?

This brings me to today's subject. Why have there been no video games designed for dogs. I know we don't have thumbs, but that Wii game system allows the humans to do all sorts of things to play the game. I can envision a mushing game where a dog runs so that the dogs on the screen run too. I think that leaving dogs out of the video game market is leaving a vast amount of untapped money that the game manufacturers are missing. Imagine how many dogs would be lined up to buy some of these games. As usual, the humans never seem to want to include us dogs. In some cases, like video games it is their financial loss.
