This is just disgusting. Rape games? Don't tell me this won't instill the perversion of rape in the minds of young men and boys. The creators of this game should be shot!

These creators are obviously pedophiles and rapists, even if they haven't acted on it!


no lol

to be a pedophile or rapist, you HAVE to act on it

what you think a person can be a Murderer without killing anyone? Please


also, this game will not instill perversion of rape in "men" , that perversion is already present in them and this game only reflects that

i would warn anyone who wants to buy this game tho, the FBI will be watching you


or maybe not, the feds dont seem to care about rape that much anyway

But seriously this has been known of in gaming circles for at least a year - and largely ignored.



that would be because the game actually sucks and is lametastic

personally i am more interested in Empire Total War, Mafia 2, and Battlestations Pacific (woot!)

now those are REAL games ohhh yea!

It's just another step in the long line of steps to destroy the morals of the population on this planet. This is why a strong family unit is so important. When people start making excuses for this kind of thing, I just shake my head.

It's about as satanic as you can get.

Peace

LOL you must have no idea what they have out there.

But in the end they are just games. I don't see how you could be fine with violence, rape, death, destruction, demons, evil, in movies and games.

But once anything sexual comes up in a game, oh no!!

This is why Japan does not put money into releasing many of their games to western people, because of people with your opinions. They know people will make a big deal out of it, and cause problems.

But I see why you would be shocked thou lol.

I'm sorry, did you just say that rape is sexual? You are foolish and sad. Sorry mods, but it had to be said.

Oh I see... So making games where they portray violence (including murder) and all sort of criminal activity like in Grant Theft Auto is OK but raping women is a no no. Either we allow violent games be sold without being picky on what is and isn't or we don't allow them at all. Lets not be hypocrites. In fact I think murder that is portrayed in so many games and movies of today is much worse then rape. Not only that but some of the twisted fantasies keeps away certain people acting up on their raping fantasies in a real world.

it's just business.



Let's try your logic on some other businesses shall we? Loansharking is just business. Pimping is just business. White slavery is just business. Child pornography and prostitution is just business. Murder for hire is just business. Fencing stolen property is just business. Naw it doesn't work for them and it doesn't work for video games that encourage violence towards women either. This game is wrong. It teaches children the wrong values.

So murdering virtual people and stealing their belongings doesn't give you a big enough thrill anymore? You have to rape virtual women to complete your trifecta of evil. I agree that GTA should be outlawed. I have seen what it does to kids. Making them into wanna be gangsters who wear their clothes funny and cannot relate to society in a productive and non threatening manner. It makes them shun productive jobs to live the "GANGSTA" lifestyle.

Oh please the "gangsta" lifestyle has been glorified since long before GTA and for 2 iterations GTA has featured an Italian mafioso, 1 iteration featured a "Gangsta" and 1 a russian.

So that is what makes it right and proper? If your house was burning down for fifteen minutes would you just ignore it and let it burn because it was already on fire previous to your finding it? Italian and Russian "GANGSTERS" are just as bad as ghetto "GANGSTAS". There is no difference in my book between them. They are all against the law and morally wrong.

The problem is in your backward association of what's creating the problem, nothing else.

OK that's very nice of you.....

I thought that the definition of rape is a forced sexual act.

I'm sorry that I don't fit your definition, and that I'm a foolish sad person.

Have a nice day, see ya around.

Peace.

I suppose that you see no problem? Are you a teenager?

I think 'Mynaeris' is a troll or someone who does not understand English but can type it somehow. We're not talking about rape, this is not rape, it is a game, it is not real. You can be offended but trying to get this game banned or killing the makers is going against freedom. Another example of going against freedom is saying that I hate bras and it should be banned, -that statement isn't right because it's an opinion I shouldn't force on people because that's just taking away freedom.

I would hope you don't wish to attack me or my character as a result of my pointing out flawed logic in an argument over freedom of expression.

LOL GTA does NOT do that, infact GTA is a pretty funny game, a sort of parody of gangsters, it makes fun of them, and they also bring up a lot of things this site ATS brings up, a lot of clever hidden messages and parodies of many western topics.

These gangster wannabes are more affected by gangster rap and kids having to fit in or get picked on, the atmosphere around poorer areas does not help too.

Here's a ltitle examlpe of a show on the tv inside GTA4 that you can watch. Looks stupid, but theres a lot of hidden messages in the video.

So the game will not play in a console when a non adult is at the controls? You are obviously a young person. As you age you will find out that what you see teaches you a little, but what you DO teaches you much more. That is why a simulation is used to train pilots instead of just a movie.

I am curious Phoenix, do you think a game that involved burning crosses in people yards and then dragging black people out and lynching them would be ok?

Serious question.


Because you are looking at the impact the game has on YOU as a teenage boy. Not on the impact it may have on people who hear about the game, or see the game, that are perhaps female, and may have been assaulted themselves or know someone who has.

In a world where sexual assault is an all too real occurrance,

www.homeoffice.gov.uk...


Levels of lifetime (since age 16) victimisation
• Around 1 in 10 women (9.7%) said they had experienced some form of sexual
victimisation (including rape) since age 16.
• Around 1 in 20 women (4.9%) said they had been raped on at least one
occasion since age 16.
• The BCS estimates that approximately three-quarters of a million women
(754,000) have been raped on at least one occasion since age 16.
• There are several methodological reasons why these figures are likely to be underestimates
of the true levels of sexual victimisation in England and Wales.
Risk factors for sexual victimisation
• Age is the biggest risk factor for experiencing sexual victimisation; young women
aged 16


Some of us who are female find it a lot less amusing. I have never been raped myself, but I know people who have, and it just ruined them. They arent even the same people. Rape isnt funny, and the fact that violence against women is generally thought of as more ok than racial violence annoys me no end.

I dont care about the sex aspect of it. I could care less if they made a virtual whorehouse where people went for consensual sex. Its not about sex. Its about not perpetrating longstanding cultural injustices through the guise of "entertainment."

The game has been around since 2006 atleast this is just the newest version 5.0 and has a nudity patch built into it. So getting upset now about the content is a little late getting mad about the life like look would be acceptible. I haven't seen the game but I do beleive its cartoon style hentai game and the Japanese have been making them with this kind of content since the early 90's.
