I'm all for freedom and do what you want but this is just repulsive. I play GTA because I want to live the life of Tony Montana or Henry Hill but never some rapist. Sorry but I have zero tolerance for rapists and pedophiles.

You're tolerant for video games involving killing people, racist jokes, and homophobic subtexts, but you can't stand a raping mod. Hypocrisy much?

I introduce you to: The Western.

jimjam3442715d ago

but hey, murders in good taste, right? right?!?

Eamon715d ago

It's a bit strange though.

Because when we kill people in games, I almost never feel the urge to murder people in real life.

But thinking of this mod where you go and rape people just doesn't feel right.

I think it's got to do with how we perceive NPCs. When you gun down civilians in GTA you don't see them as humans but as polygons and textures.

But when you're introduced to the concept of "rape gameplay" you no longer see those NPCs as mere polygons and textures.

Perhaps it's got to do with how we became psychologically insensitive to violence due to the number of hours we play videogames involving killing.

Those 2 things that he's intolerant about are the 2 things that even people in prison ie murderers and the like do not tolerate... Felons have standards too ya know , so I really don't understand the hypocrisy in it.

ScottyHoss715d ago

I agree with #1, freedom and equality to those who want to be rapists in games but just watching movies like straw dogs (new not original) make me physically sick, I wouldn't partake. Murder is death but rape is torture, and far more psychologically damaging than say the torture in GTA. Just not really interested and kind of disturbed this was approved..

taking the P**s etc is not as bad rape, rape is a lot worse then racism, threats, murder etc

Uh...murder is worse than rape. Either way, it's a video game. Either act is virtual reality, not reality.

"Uh...murder is worse than rape"

That's debatable.
There's a great episode of Jimquisition on the subject, at least in regards to VG: http://www.escapistmagazine...

thunderbird86714d ago

I don't see how unwanted sex could be worse than death...

BiggerBoss715d ago

So mass murder is okay but rape is wrong? Umm okay. How about none of it is okay, but it's just a video game.

Rock-Lee715d ago

Dit you just comment twice in your own article? First on the original and now here?

Back-to-Back715d ago

So murder is less repulsive than rape? Does not compute that logic

Hot coffee whether you want it or NOT!

maybe this mod has gone a little too far even by GTA standards.!

stanr715d ago

I know trolling can be fun, but this is just disturbing. Why can't people just stick to racist and homophobic rants?

trenso1715d ago

yes because we would rather be further degraded for our race or sexual orientation.

stanr715d ago

@trenso1 - I don't support racist and homophobic rants but its not as disturbing as rape mode.

jimjam3442715d ago

i think id rather be raped, as opposed to murdered, thats just me though.

the reason violence is okay is that its a daily occurance. death is part of life. if rapists were as prevelent as murder, and murders were rare, wed be getting articles like, "gta mod lets you stab another player, gta too far?"

my first thought is why is this fun? its wierd.
but is T-Bagging not the epitome of "in good taste" sexual assualt?

iceman06714d ago

But rape IS more prevalent than murder. There is about a 25% chance, at least in America, that a woman will be raped in her lifetime. Can't say that for murder.
I'm in the camp of neither one being worse or better than the other. But, one being more socially acceptable in terms of playing a video game.

Majin-vegeta715d ago

Lol their just virtual character its not like someone really is.

iamnsuperman715d ago

Urm okay. Why would anyone want to do that?

-Foxtrot715d ago

Oh pewdiepie is going to love this...

CaEsAr-715d ago

you made me laugh, loudly

hahaha

MRMagoo123715d ago (Edited 715d ago )
