Virtual rape game banned by Amazon

In Rapelay, gamers direct a character to sexually assault a mother and her two young daughters at an underground station, before raping any of a selection female characters.

The game was intended for release just in Japan, but was on offer to British buyers through Amazon Marketplace, the section of the online store’s website open to third-party sellers.

But Amazon has now withdrawn the game after complaints from users, deeming it to be inappropriate. “We determined that we did not want to be selling this particular item,” a spokeswoman said.

If it wasn`t for Amazon picture in the link, I would have thought a game like this would be a joke. Whoever thought a game like this was a good idea needs to be shot immediatly. I`m not usually a fan of censoring video games or going on about the evils of Grand Theft Auto, but this game is wrong and should have never seen the light of day.
