    RapeLay: Japanís rape simulation video game

    Why the hell would someone even think of something like this?

    http://www.theweek.com/article/index...ion_video_game

    ďAnti-violence advocates are taking a stand against a video game in which players stalk and rape a mother and her two daughters,Ē said the Associated Press. Amazon and eBay have banned the sale of RapeLay, a rape simulation video game made by Japan-based company Illusion, and now New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is urging other websites to do the same.

    Itís easy to see why people are outraged, said Matt Bachl in Nine MSN. Aside from the ďgang rapeĒ aspect of the game, the goal is to make women sex slaves without getting them pregnantóif a player fails, he must force the woman ďto have an abortion or risk being thrown under a train and killed.Ē It gets even worse, but the descriptions ďare too violent and graphic to write here.Ē

    ďDespite the obvious ignorance and pandering,Ē said The Escapist, ďQuinn's condemnation of RapeLay will no doubt play well with those who see video games as a harbinger of the end times.Ē But isnít all this outrage more than a little ironic? After all, this is Americaówhere the appetite for porn and violence seems insatiable, and a lot of people get rich off of it.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again...

    Some people are just plain fucked up.

    In this case, stunningly fucked up. You would have to have such a chemical imbalance in the brain to come up with and market something like that. So much so that your head would be constantly tilted to one side.

    I too think this is fucked up. I don't understand the brain that says "hey, I got a great idea for a video game" and then goes into describing the aforementioned.

    But, I will just mention as a point of debate, Japan has an incredibly graphic violence and porn industry, many times combined into the same product, and their violent crime rates are almost non-existant in comparison to ours.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    How the fuck a video game of this nature could ever make it past the concept stage is beyond me. The fact it is being produced makes me want to vomit. This should be absolutely criminal globally.

    wow....just wow.


    but as a passionate proponent of free speech, I gotta say, I don't think they should ban the game. It's repugnant, can't say I want to play it and I certainly wouldn't be real pleased to see a kid of mine bragging about getting past level 10 or whatever but I don't want to see any sort of legal action taken. if a store doesn't want to carry it, good for them. That's their right to free expression and the buying public can boycott the shit out of it.

    Should movies that depict rape be banned? Should books? Should people who think about, or participate in rape fantasies be punished, or prosecuted? Should depictions of bondage - or even clothes that suggest it - be banned? After all, bondage is play "force", and a figure for, or symbol of rape.

    This, to me, sounds like a really bad idea that the market will reject. We don't need authoritarian edicts by the government to protect us from this.

    It is no surprise either that Americans living in a violent, sometimes mysogynistic culture would caterwaul against this while the seemingly less violent and pent-up Japanese might tolerate it.

    Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

    absolutely but not by the government. Let the public ban it by simply not buying it and by stores and retail outlets simply refusing to carry it because it's not the sort of material their company wants to be associated with.

    it's repugnant and people should be allowed to let the "game's" publisher know that they are not interested in such a product by exercising their own freedom of choice.

    Don't get me wrong it is deplorable, what this game is about. Why though is it okay to have games where everyday citizens and cops are killed, and the more you kill the more points you get. Games like that fly off the shelves. I for one think those are just as wrong as this one. The best way to protest it is to not buy it. Of course though once the media gets a hold of the story and publicizes it to death, it will fly off the shelves.

    very good point. Somehow murdering people in cold blood, robbing, mugging, and even games where you get extra points for exhibiting extra gruesome tactics in very realistic violent acts are ok but rape...god no. It's an interesting line to draw.

    You beat me to it. I was thinking the same thing. As despicable as this idea is for a video game, why is it that we so easily condone video games featuring extreme violence and murder?

    Some of the stuff they do in Japan is crazy! They make videos where they shit and puke all over each other, make a video game where raping is the object of the game, yet in their videos, they blur out the genitals.
