And Now Rape Games Are Not Banned in Japan

Kotaku writes: Don't believe everything you see on television - even when it's reported by a major Japanese television network - and especially when reported by TBS, it seems.

Earlier, it was reported by TBS News that the Ethics Organization of Computer Software had voluntarily agreed to halt the sale and manufacture of "rape-type" games. Too bad nobody told the EOCS, because the organization was surprised to see this reported by TBS and later picked up by Yahoo! News Japan.

The story is too old to be commented.

Bad taste? Sure, but it's a game, it's not hurting anybody. May as well ban damn near every hentai flick ever made as well. Another site who reviewed it put it perfectly, but unfortunately I can't remember or find the article anymore, so I'll paraphrase: "Rapeplay is no more a rape simulator than Grand Theft Auto is a murder simulator, and we all know that's bullshit".

TOO PAWNED3406d ago

Than by your logic it is okey to create game where you have sex with little kids? It's just game, right? for pedos!

Unbiased13406d ago


You comment is ridiculous. watching/playing sex scene vs shooting someone in GTA does not trigger same chemical reaction in your brain. i don't know of anyone who plays GTA and than goes "I have to kill someone", but if you watch porno movie or play this type if game you get aroused, horny, want to have's not the same. This is sick fetish

Are you serious?!

So no harm comes to the world from playing GTA. But if you play a rape sim, then you get a sudden urge to imitate that behavior in real life? Sorry but I just don't see it that way, and if you can't tell apart video game fiction form real life, then you shouldn't play ANY videogame... at all! But I think I get your point:

- Killing police officers = good
- Raping women = bad

And they say gamers aren't smart!

And by the way Unbiased1, I would love to see that clinical study about "chemical reactions in gamers brains".

Megaton3406d ago (Edited 3406d ago )

Well then I suppose you two are all ready to line up and picket anything with rape in it. Go rage against anime, manga and porn while you're at it. Sick fetish, sure, but I'm not gonna go all "OH THE HORROR! PIXELRAPE! BAN IT NAO!".

It's laughable that you rightfully reject the ridiculous claim that GTA makes you a bloodthirsty murderer, but then turn around and preach the equally ridiculous idea that one click of the mouse in Rapeplay, and you turn into an insatiable sex fiend, hellbent on committing violent sexual acts.

Surprised to not find you beating your chests in here:

I AM NOT AGAINST SEX games, lets clear that one up, i did enjoy few hentai games, because in those i played there was some story, it was not pure porn "ride my shaft straight away", but i am against raping games, that is sick.
Are kids playing GTA? Well they shouldn't that game is for 18+, so is porn but rape is some else and can not be justified.
I do believe that minors should not play GTA, because it can have negative effect on their perception on reality, i never defend GTA, i don't like game at all, but comparing GTA that is rated M(not for kids so if they play it blame parents) vs rape game in which it doesn't even matter if you are 18 since that is illegal to rape someone(in case you didn't know) is laughable

Information Minister3406d ago (Edited 3406d ago )

@1.5 - Hypocrite.

@1.6 - You know what else is illegal? Murder (in case you didn't know)! How can you endorse virtual murder and condemn virtual rape? I don't care how you spin it, to accept one while rejecting the other is hypocrisy. They are both wrong and illegal practices. You cannot ignore one while censoring the other.

But you know what?... I've made up my mind, I'm downloading the game today in order to experience first hand what all the fuss is about. But if you ask me, the whole thing is being blown way out of proportion.

sack_boi3406d ago (Edited 3406d ago )

You guys would understand how sick this 5hit is if you had kids.
You can't even attempt to justify this garbage, it's just wrong.

Demonsdown3406d ago

Actually similar chemicals get released for both. And in fact one can trigger the other in some psychotics.

Bodyboarder_VGamer3406d ago (Edited 3406d ago )

-Do you kill kids on most murder simulators called games? If you played Rapelay you'll know that the game's is not rape at all and they don't use kids in it, what makes your comment completely nullified.

When you talk about things you don't know this often happens: Fail.

@Unbiased1 :
"comparing GTA that is rated M(not for kids so if they play it blame parents) vs rape game in which it doesn't even matter if you are 18 since that is illegal to rape someone(in case you didn't know) is laughable"

-Didn't you know that it is illegal to kill people? In the 10 Commandments of GOD it is considered a mortal sin to kill a person... It is just that you been killing people in games for so long that it is considered normal, by not only you but the society. How can you find any fun in something as brutal as killing a bunch of people? Rambo style?

This is the same as the people that say don't do drugs but then they don't consider alcohol or cigarettes as part of those drugs they are talking about.

Tito Jackson3406d ago (Edited 3406d ago )

gotta be careful bud, when speaking about it on a religious aspect. some people chalk God off as imaginary. but just to reinforce your point:

Romans 1:24-27: Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity
for the degrading of their bodies with one another...because of this, God gave them over to shameful
lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also
abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed
indecent acts with other men and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

God HATES Sexual Immorality. this has been clearly stated several times in the bible.

Rape is included, im pretty sure:
"But if in the field the man finds the girl who is engaged, and the man forces her and lies with her, then only the man who lies with her shall die. 26"But you shall do nothing to the girl; there is no sin in the girl worthy of death, for just as a man rises against his neighbor and murders him, so is this case. 27"When he found her in the field, the engaged girl cried out, but there was no one to save her," (Deut. 22:25-28).
*If you have trouble understanding this, then please consult your parents.*

Its not just from religion either.

Killing and raping are illegal according to the law. THE LAW!

You have to be sick to enjoy something like this, and have hidden wishes or raping someone...i know psychos will disagree buy YOU know i am speaking the truth

sack_boi3406d ago

I see, you can be a console fanboy and still be a man. I respect you for that. And I agree with what you said.

TOO PAWNED3406d ago

thx, glad to see someone with brains

rockleex3405d ago


Seems to me like they get PLENTY of pleasure from killing.

xabmol3406d ago

Millions of kids around the globe are playing murder simulators that show it's ok to kill without remorse and we have yet to see a decent sex game because that be wrong. Pfft..

Besides, as I have said MANY times before on the subject of rape games...

If it is allowed in books, movies, and virtually every other medium it should be allowed in games. Double standards are not cool.

jessehaysfl3406d ago

with free speech. no censorship. It may offend us all but who are we to judge? If you want to make a statement don't buy the game, that is the best way to protest it.

San Frandisco3406d ago

FYI porn is/can turn into a very VERY dangerouse addiction for ALOT of ppl... particularly the young ones like teenagers.
Killing and murder is very VERY less likely to develope into an Addiction.
so this rape game(s) has a much higher impact on the brain,therfore can resault in recreating tho's same dangerouse acts.... ESPECIALLY if in game allows you to rape little girls.

If some of the above ppl agree with these games then your saying its ok to make a beastiality game?? no difference,both foul acts,and if you have any moral standards then you would understand and know that this kind of stuff/acts is very VERY imoraly wrong despite wut age you are.

Lumbo3406d ago

If there was a scientifically proof of a link between rape porn , and people becoming rapists ... then rape porn would be banned, it isn't, hence your point is the usual "FPS games make people into killers" blabber.

Rape porn does not make you a rapist, it is disgusting and utterly unerotic as far as i am concerned, but so is scat and all the other disturbing fetishes around. If you support banning of ANY kind of game with the reasoning "the game makes people into XYZ" you MUST also ban ALL FPS games, ALL games that have theft and brutality as core concept, all RTS war sims, ANYTHING violent and ANYTHING that includes illegal acts that score you points. That includes all RPG games that allow you to play a thief or rogue class = trains you to become a criminal, BAN BAN BAN.

GTA does not make you into a maniac cop-killer, Rapelay does not make you a rapist, the only thing that rapelay would make you is utterly BORED of mosaic censored images or throw the piece of crap out of the window.

Your "i claim something is true, therefor it is" approach failed.
