Instant Rapelay

chris_brownI didn’t think it was possible, but someone has figured out a way to outdo Grand Theft Auto in the depravity department. A new hit videogame has stumbled upon the open streets of Japan. From the looks of things it’s already available on the shores of the good ol’ US. What could possibly be more sordid than the mega hit franchise video game Grand Theft Auto which revels in the idea of theft, murder, and casual sex? What could be worse than a game that was renounced by the likes of politicos such as Lieberman and Hillary Clinton.

Well, leave it the Japanese to find a new way to up the ante with (drum roll please) a rape game. That’s right, you heard me correctly, a rape videogame. Let’s be clear, I’m already well aware of the difference between the Japanese culture and our own. In fact, I used to think that nothing could surprise me regarding their curiosity toward human sexuality. I’ve seen everything from vending machines selling used teenage girls underwear, to pornographic anime. But this is a line even I didn’t see them crossing.

The game is called Rapelay. Here’s an insert from one video game reviewer.

The game begins with a man standing on a subway platform, stalking a girl in a blue sundress. On the platform, you can click “prayer” to summon a wind that lifts her skirt. She blushes. Once she’s on the train, the assault begins. Inside the subway car, you can use the mouse to grope your victim as you stand in a crowd of mute, translucent commuters. From here, your character corners his victim—in a station bathroom, or in a park with the help of male friends—and a series of interactive rape scenes begins.

Early on, RapeLay operates like a visual novel—the exposition comes via text that scrolls over a series of static images, explaining your character’s plan to enslave three women one by one, and his eerie delight in the premeditation. Although the interactive assaults are difficult to endure if you have a conscience, the game’s text actually provides the most unsettling material. RapeLay relies on the horrendous, wildly sexist fantasy that rape victims enjoy being attacked. After the exposition, the game essentially becomes a simulator of consensual intercourse. There’s kissing. The women orgasm.

Alright stop the damn press! This is ridiculous. Who buys this s**t? I just don’t get it! I’m as much of a freak as any typical guy. In fact two of the things I love the best are sex and video games. I couldn’t think of a better time than getting my knob polished and playing Madden 2009 at the same time, but this is different. This is sick. A lot of money, time, and manpower go into making today’s videogames. It’s not like it was back in the 80’s when two guys sat in their mom’s garage drinking beer typing out code for Ms. Pacman. Many of these video game production companies have a very large staff. Who bank rolls this crap?

Can you imagine the staff meeting? Mr. Wong walks into the room with a beaming smile on his face. He’s carrying a presentation board. His colleagues sit in front of him at a circular table. He places the placard on the holder and clears his throat.

I’ve got this great idea guys. Instead of just making games with silly little animals solving puzzles and collecting coins, I think we should put our skills to better use and start putting these bitches in their place.”

A hush fall over the room, the company’s financier sits at the table twiddling his thumbs. He muses for a moment and finally speaks. “What do you have in mind?

Check this out”. Mr Wong unveils his placard. On the sign is a picture of a frenzied man dry-humping the leg of a woman. “Let’s start raping these hoes man!”

The financier says nothing. Slowly the corners of his mouth turn. His eyes gleam in delight. “By George I think you’ve got. Somebody here give Mr. Wong a raise. That’s the type of innovative thinking this company needs.

We’ve got to nip this in the bud now before it gets out of control. It’s only a matter of time before we start seeing games like:

Cellblock – You have to survive a 3 year bid in San Quinton by shiving your enemies and anal raping your way to the top. Salad tossing earns bonus levels.

The Foster Home Adventures – You and your meth huffing wife must molest and pimp out your foster kids in order to earn money to pay your coke dealer. Ashing cigarettes on the arms of the little ones has never been more fun.

The Klanning – Be the first to string up the darkies and whip your way into becoming a powerful grand dragon. Don’t let those silly Negro’s find the Underground Railroad.

It’s gotta stop…
