Amazon.com has halted sales of a Japanese video game that simulated the rape of a mother and her two daughters.

The Rapelay game had been offered, not directly by Amazon.com, but rather through its third-party Amazon Marketplace service. The seller specializes in "hentai" — sexually explicit nime and manga.

The description of the game, obtained before it was removed, is:
Rapelay is an offshoot of the Illusion series, Interact Play. You, like in previous installments, play as a public nuisance that gets away from captivity and starts scouting for new targets. This time around you find a family of a single mother and her two daughters. You quickly begin your hunt and capture each woman one by one. The gameplay involves an amusing training/disposition system with which to break each respective target to your liking. Watch where you blow your load, or you might get them pregnant!
Here's our Amazon.com review: disgusting!

The game was released in 2006 by Illusion Studio, based in Japan. Other titles from the studio include "Battle Raper 1 and 2" and "Sexy Beach."

This kind of stuff is sick and disgusting. There are plenty of other websites available to satisfy the twistedly declined. Why bring it here?

If you look at this from a logical point of view, I really don't see what the big deal is. First of all this game is purely fantasy based and is CG, it's not like any actual rape is taking place. Secondly this is intended only for adults, as is any other pornographic material.

I certainly don't condone rape in any way, shape, or form, however I think it is somewhat hypocritical for people to make such a big deal about this, considering the extremely violent nature of most video games. Personally I find games where you go around murdering other people to be slightly more offensive than games where you rape other people.

Although I don't entertain myself with either of the aforementioned kinds of games, I can't say I find either to be all that offensive. They are merely games after all.

i absolutely agree with AjayD here.

Look at the grand theft auto franchise, i love these games, but you don't see me going out and killing cops or gangbangers in large numbers.

this is the exact same concept here, it's a devious fantasy deep down in someone's soul that they play out in a video game.

it's all about the state of society in which you were raised, what material you were and weren't exposed to that would change your point of view on what is right and wrong, sick and normal

I'm going to chime in here because, I don't care what you compare it to or say, rape is especially heinous. There's a reason why pedophiles and rapists are often times targeted in prisons. Even the hardened criminals find it repulsive. I've never been big on the GTA franchise but this definitely takes it to the next level. It reminds me that while humanity is an amazing, wonderful race, there are those very few among us that appear to be human but are simply sub-human garbage.

Hi All

That's disgusting. Rape is a act that's beyond contempt. As Dave_HH said in prison criminals target rapist & pedophiles for their own brand of justice. It is beyond me why anyone would make a game like this & I'm completely floored by anyone wanting to play said game.

WTF!!! I thought GTA games had issues. Whoever came up with this needs to be in a mental ward.

Seeing as pedophiles are an unrelated topic, I will set them aside. Although criminals in prison may very well target rapists for their own special brand of justice, lets not forget some of these same criminal vigilantes are probably raping other inmates. The morals exemplified by criminals are probably not the best measuring stick by which to judge rape.

That being said, I seriously doubt anyone here is contesting the despicable and inexcusable nature of actually committing rape. Although if you are referring to someone who might play this type of game as human trash, I think you are going overboard.

American society places a stigma on sex that much of the rest of the world does not. The fact that nudity in films automatically receives and R rating while at the same time, essentially any amount of gratuitous violence can be present in a PG-13 rated film is proof of such. In European countries such as France, the reverse is true. America has become desensitized when it comes to violence, however that does not make rape a more heinous act than murder. Not for one second. Aside from treason, murder is the only crime that can command the death penalty for good reason.

Please excuse my rant.
