Have these games just gone 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.

“This was a game that had absolutely no place on the market,” said Taina Bien-Aime of women’s rights organization Equality Now which has campaigned for the game to be taken off the shelves.

But the controversy that led to stopping sales of the game instead took it viral.

Hard to believe this game is free and has gone viral. Some people will download anything.

    To counter your claim – if I develop and market a game where players need to crush babies skulls will it be ok?

    I agree that it is a problem to try and mold it into a law, but I think that the gaming industry and the gamers themselves should sanction the development and publishing of “games” such as Rapelay.

    I guess you guys are too young to remember Sega’s “Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker” game. The special levels in that game were cringe-worthy. It would be difficult for a game to be gross enough to puke when you play it, but this came pretty close.

    “if I develop and market a game where players need to crush babies skulls will it be ok?”

    I have no problem with such a game. You’re not crushing real babies. I don’t think you will sell many copies and it will be a financial failure on your part, but hey, it’s a free country if you want to make a game where you crush virtual baby skulls more power to you.

    What I don’t get is where you personally draw the moral line. In CODMW2 you can run though an airport and shoot unarmed civilians as they run for their lives, but suddenly rape, and baby skulls is too much. Hell in Starcraft you nuke other players. It’s all virtual shit that has no bearing on the REAL world around us. Let people have their niche games, they don’t hurt anyone.

    And if somebody wants to make a game where you throw flaming babies at the police, don’t buy their game. If other people do, DEAL WITH IT.
