“Rape Simulation” Video Game Pulled From Amazon…..But Only When Complaints Hit The News

From the “it makes me sick to my stomach” department, comes the news that Amazon has been selling a “Rape Simulator” for some time and has only recently pulled it because the light of the media (in this case, The Belfast Telegraph) was focused on it.

Called “Rapeplay” this game has the following description:

“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.”

All together now….. Disgusting!

Amazon was okay with selling this game until the Belfast Telegraph article appeared. Now the game has been deemed “inappropriate” by Amazon and the game has been removed from the site. Of course that means nothing it’s already been captured forever  in Google’s cache.

One has to wonder what Amazon was thinking when they put this up for sale on their site. I play my fair share of video games and I truly believe that games won’t make you a psycho or anything like that. However, this game crosses the line of any sort of common decency. Rape is something that should NEVER be trivialized. EVER!

Amazon should be ashamed for selling something like this in the first place. It is just WRONG.
