Too Far? - PC Game Allows Players To Gang Rape Women

Have video games gone too far? A PC game out of Japan that allows gamers to gang rape women inside the video game and then force them to have an abortion has been banned from Amazon.com.

The game is called Rapelay, and in the game players are directed to sexually assault a mother and her two young daughters in an underground station. There is also an option for several players to gang up and perform a gang rape.

At one point in the game, the gamer is directed to force the woman who was raped to have an abortion. If the woman is allowed to give birth in the game, the woman throws the gamer's character under a train.

Originally, the game was only supposed to be released in Japan, but ended up being offered to consumers in the U.K. through Amazon Marketplace, but the game has now been banned and is no longer available.

But this incident really begs the question of how far is too far when it comes to sex and violence in these games.

For example, a game called 25 to Life "allows players to attack police with an arsenal of Molotov cocktails, broken bottles and baseball bats. When weapons fail, players make strategic moves using civilians as human shields."

Also, one recent Grand Theft Auto game actually contained explicit pornographic scenarios in which the gamer "literally directs the pornographic scenes - becomes an actor in porn scenes of explicit sexual activity."

The majority of all video games are marketed at teens and young adults.

They end up absorbing these scenes for hour after hour, and the sad reality is that what a person thinks about constantly is eventually what they start to become.

That is why we would be wise to heed the advice of Philippians 4:8.....

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

What do you think about this debate? Feel free to leave a comment.....

Definitely too far. Games are supposed to be entertainment. When rape becomes entertainment...well...I feel for the human race.

Rape is a bit too far, but killing cops I am Ok with. Most are assholes anyway.

That game was released in Japan where the game is not an anomaly. There are lots of games released there that most westerners would find horrible if no obscene.
That has little or nothing to do with games that are made for a western audience. The scene in Grand Theft Auto was only available if someone hacked the software of the game and was not accessible through normal game play or even cheat codes.. Once it was found out the game was recalled and that content was removed making it impossible to access.

We came across what was essentially a good game except for one important part. You couldn't start the game without first doing an orgy. Are you kidding me! Needless to say my teen did not get that game or many others he wanted because of things like this.

At present this video is consdiered unacceptable by most people, but month-by-month the line of what's Ok is pushed back .... these sorts of games will be in your local shops before too long: "What the heck, it's only make believe!". Frightening.

Those people who keep whining about prohibiting rape games and such really make me sick ! They're are really hypocrites !!!

What's wrong with anyone who want to play any type game he wants as long as he doesn't do it in reality !??

These people keep whining about violence in video games and such, while in reality anyone can buy guns freely -> Just see what happen : shooting at schools and such !

It will be simply more rational to relate between selling guns freely and rising number of crimes rather than games with violence and crimes !

If they keep banning thing like this, people who don't have other means to release their pent-up stress might resort to doing it in reality
