‘RapeLay’ video game promotes rape

With games like GTA causing a really big fuss over the fact that you can beat hookers to death (to get the money back you just paid them after having sex with them), it’s little wonder that there are games which take it a step further. In Japan there are many hentai games which depict rape, bondage, sex and all that other stuff. Because of all the controversy over this game, it went viral.

Now there’s one game that people claim simply take it too far:

The game begins with a teenage girl on a subway platform. She notices you are looking at her and asks, “Can I help you with something?”

That is when you, the player, can choose your method of assault.

With the click of your mouse, you can grope her and lift her skirt. Then you can follow her aboard the train, assaulting her sister and her mother.

As you continue to play, “friends” join in and in a series of graphic, interactive scenes, you can corner the women, rape them again and again.

The game allows you to even impregnate a girl and urge her to have an abortion. The reason behind your assault, explains the game, is that the teenage girl has accused you of molesting her on the train. The motive is revenge.

Is it OK to replay such fantasies in a virtual world? This debate has been raging for a long time with things like FPS games being blamed for school shootings. What do you think? Will it cause people to go out and rape? Leave a comment below or tweet your thoughts @HelloLiefje

    i (m 28)really am a hardcore gamer and everytime my favourite hobby is being attacked by some stupid who is probably shooting around in his local gun blub e.g. in bavaria.

    but when it comes to games which enable you to actually live through the experience of sexual violence, there is no possible way of justification. there is not even a remote reason to discuss the justification given ingame. its just a plain nogo!

    normally being very tolerant and circumspect in developing my opinions on different topics, i can only say one thing about games and gamers like this:

    each and every one of these players or those interested in playing is suffering a great lack of emotional health and already is a danger to people is his surroundings. That's even without ever actually having played these games. There can be no tolerance and no discussion about it.

    you can argue, if doing physical damage to people virtually can affect weak minds to try it in the real world. however, and even more so in this case, that says something about these people and not the gaming industry.

    by the way, love your blog. keep up the good work!

    thanks for that!

    Yeah this game is a bit much, but it's not the first game with rape as a theme. Can't believe it's gone viral though, i'm sure a lot of people just wanted to see how graphic it really was.

    if the games are rubbish, people won't buy and companies will die
    any politics sucks and international cocksuckers regulators should not interfere with internal politics, in fact these guys should not even exist
    womens right organisations? I bet at least half the players are women; gotta love the ipocrisy
