The outrageous video game glorifies sexual assault.
Players begin the game by stalking a mother on a subway station ... then violently raping her. They then move on to attack her two daughters, who are described as virgin schoolgirls. Players are also allowed to enter "free form mode," where they can rape any woman and get other male game characters to join the attacks. Just sick!
Reviews of the game describe graphically detail scenes of attacks in the game with "tears glistening in the young girl's eyes."
According to a post in a gaming forum, the game also includes abortions. Every time a rape is committed, there is a chance the victim could become pregnant.
"If she does become pregnant, you're supposed to force her to get an abortion, otherwise she gets more and more visibly pregnant each time you have sex. If you allow the child to be born, then the woman will throw you in front of a train," the post explains.
This makes our blood boil!
British officials were equally outraged. "It is intolerable that anyone would purchase a game that simulates the criminal offense of rape," said Keith Vaz, a member of Parliament. "To know that this was widely available through a major online retailer is utterly shocking. I do not see how this can be allowed. I will be raising this matter in Parliament and hope that action is taken to prevent the game from being sold."
A spokesman for Illusion, the makers of the video game, said: "We believe there is no problem with the software, which has cleared the domestic ratings of an ethics watchdog body."
How is a game like "Rapelay" even legal?
