OK, I understand where you're coming from..
I won't challenge your limited perspectives further, so enough of the definitions and let's get back on topic.

I personally like these kind of games for the amazing and creative work of the artists....cheers.



Your ethe one who started with the definitions that showed your 'limited persepctive', not me. I simply corrected you, sorry if you cant handle that and needed to become offensive. My understanding of this topic is far from limited, so stop with the clever remarks and personal attacks.

Well, since you think being opposed to rape is an indication of a limited perspective, I suppose I can only hope you get to broaden your perspective even further and enjoy the experience as a recipient.

Cheers!

Telling someone what they think is rather ignorant especially if you fail to understand the context of what was said and try to create an opinion where one does not exist.

Being opposed to rape is NOT the indication of a limited perspective and I don't think that!... YOU presumed wrongly.

Assuming rape doesn't involve "rough sex" IS a limited perspective! It depends on who's perspective you view it from doesn't it? Rapist, victim or 3rd party and in the context of the game in question it DOES play a role and has nothing to do with passiveness or reoffending relatives.

Have you actually seen the game?

And the hypocracy in your above insult is laughable. I insulted nobody directly, I was pointing out that some of the views were "limited". Sorry for any offence you or zazzafrazz felt if you missed the point.

Something I'd like you to understand is that I DON'T THINK the subject of rape in the real world should be played down or taken lightly. I would NEVER allow anything like that in the world around ME. Full stop!

And I said "enough of the definitions" because I felt like it was one of the Christian threads that boxes things in and doesn't allow for other views, and it was your comment here:

Rape is not rough sex.

that started it, not me. I was merely trying to offer "perspective".

So I'll leave you to it and get back to my game of chess.......cheers.

It is NOT harmless. It is not portraying rape in a book, or in a movie, which is always shown as a negative, and done to define the actions of people that are insane or evil.

This is being done as entertainment, and it is in a media that encourages users to act as a rapist, (even though it is in an artificial medium), for the sake of entertainment.

After you prove that the player doesn't go to jail at the end of the game, you can come back and talk about how it's promoting rape.

Sorry. The character going to jail at the end, does NOT redeem this theme or this game.

But in your earlier post it redeemed the novel or movie.

You claim that it's okay to use as a device to illustrate the perversion of people, and yet, even if, in the end the person gets what they deserve it's not acceptable for a game.

One can create a fantasy scenario in their own mind, even write a story or movie in which it happens, but god forbid it be an interactive game, that would just be wrong.

Wow... this world is just getting nuttier by the day isn't it?

I don't think I'd have the stomach enough to play the game. Sorry if that indicates ignorance to the subject matter, but I just wouldn't be able to play through even one minute of it.

Thinking about it though, isn't it odd that we can so easily play games which have you murder people and not give it a second thought... but we get ill at the thought of a game about rape?

I suppose that's human nature though.
Human nature has allot to do with violence and destruction... however, few have it in their nature to torture sexually.


What do you think of this though?
Can the game serve to distract actual rapists from doing it in real life?
Or will it only produce more rapists through suggestion?

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.


no way!

GTA did not teach kids that!

PUBLIC SCHOOL taught them that!

and their buddys at PUBLIC SCHOOL told them to get GTA, and whatever other BS is out there

see this all centers around the issue of PUBLIC EDUCATION

if you think there is a serious decline in the standards of morality and decency perhaps you should look to those pesky public schools first!

i also should point out that virtually every generation of human history claimed that their generation was the worst in a progressive line of getting worse, so anything you think of today as "the worst ever" is certainly not the worst and its a illusion of perception

Let me tell you as a hardcore PC gamer, I heard a lot of strange things come from japan. And when it comes to wackoness, the japanese is on the very top of the world. It's very very scary too, since their culture accepts (or at least tolerate) it.

Anyone want to list the creepiness of japan culture. I'll list some.

They sell used female underwears (for sniffing I assume).

Public sex in the open porn.
Have you ever heard 2 girls and a cup? They have something similar

Simulated gang rape porn.
Borderline pedophilic culture, they use young girls in night clubs, in porn (real or cartoon).

These people really creep me out!!! (the extreme one I mean, not all japanese)

Its a GAME. If you dont like it, dont buy it. Nobody forces you to play it, so I dont see what the big deal is?


What is the big deal? The big deal is it exists. It isn't that it harms people, it is that it EXISTS. People are terrified it exists. Most don't likely even know about the scat, torture, bukkake, whipping, goo-girl, furry-sex, futanari, hook-hanging, monster-rape, amputee, milking, golden showers or snuff....

The people in this whole thread bring a whole level of rage into me that I am wholly uncomfortable with due to their sheer and brain-melting amount of ignorance, western centrism and righteous moral absolutism.

Sorry. You people have NO INKLING ABOUT ANYTHING whereas it relates to the internet and sex. Most of those decrying this J-game as harmful to society lack imagination...

RULE 34! LOOK IT UP! If you ever have a THOUGHT of something that could be porn, there is porn of it! And not just a LITTLE bit! WELCOME TO THE INTERNET!

Snuff? People get off reading stories of sex followed by murder (And its the death at the end that REALLY gets them)

Golden Showers and Scat? People get off from consuming human excrement in both #1 and #2 forms.

Incest? Done. Futanari? Females with male genitalia swinging between their legs.... GET EFFING EDUCATED, you MOUTHBREATHERS!

You're the same people who advocate regulation of the internet, who scream for Children to be protected rather than PREPARED! Newsflash, you CAN'T PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN! NOBODY CAN EXCEPT YOUR CHILDREN!

And another thing, you sanctimonious cretins (An appropriate usage of terminology in this case), all of you people spewing bullcrap out of your mouth about studies and increase in crime, where the hell did you learn to do your RESEARCH?

Crime in the U.S.

And for you women who are throwing around appeals to emotion around (Which is a logical fallacy!), Yes, Rape is sex.

Rape is sex. It's sexual. Someone is getting sex out of it. Someone's enjoying it, even if its just the rapist. Someone's getting their rocks off. Is this offensive? GOOD!

You know what else? SOME PEOPLE FANTASIZE ABOUT IT! Hell, there's probably twenty men on an average day that you encounter that vividly fantasize about every one of you females and what they'd like to do. Most of them probably aren't even interested in these kind of games, but you know what? They fantasize about you anyways, and there isn't anything you can do about it. I cannot wait until the day when people can read each other's thoughts, I'll be laughing so hard I'll cry as humanity tears each other apart for their THOUGHTS. Thoughts that were ALWAYS there, but that generally people didn't act on.

Stop protecting the children. Prepare them. Stop pushing ethics and morals on others, just- just STOP IT. STOP IT DAMMIT!

Let people live their lives! LET OTHER PEOPLE ALONE!

......


I know none of you people I wish would hear me will hear me. I know none of you, no matter what I say, will consider or evaluate my words. You have lost the ability to digest a thought that isn't your own or part of the social contract.

I can be offensive and step on feet. I can be sweet and use beatuiful words.... but it never matters. You people are designed for hate... the hypocrisy is that some of you believe you are enlightened.

Jai Guru Deva Om.... Perhaps death is the only true remaining freedom.... the freedom to not wear the fears and hatreds of those around you.

Stop it. Please. Embrace those you hate before it is too late.

My husband, who is in his forties, is a melonpopper. He pops'em all the time. Loves it. He can play his first person shooter games 24/7 if I let him, I see him beating up ho's with both his fists and with a bat, he gets cheat codes to do special little deviant things to the characters in his games. He expecially loves to play war games, strategy and really bloody and deadly battes, he is quite good at it, I tell him one day he will finish one of them and some super secret statement is gonna pop up telling him that he is to come serve with an elite force because of his melon popping abilities. But he does not get off the game and want to shoot people, or beat them with bats, no real thoughts of shooting people in the head, or smacking ho's. It is a game. But, even he thinks the idea of a rape game is sick.

I am so tired of people that think they are RIGHT. I am so bone-weary of people who feel as if goodness is some instinct that everyone has, and they cannot CONCEIVE of someone who doesn't fit their tiny little mould of what a human being is.

People who are just victims of their own sheery idiocy. I am so... so tired of all of this.

Consumers of fear, purveyors of the small mind, merchants of the atrophying sameness that infects and gangrenes the soul to a barren gray landscape of inhumanity....

God bless all the sinners... god bless all of them, down to the pedophile and serial killer. Nobody ever wants to say it... am I spreading hate? AM I SPREADING HATE by asking for God to bless them? You think hard and long...

I don't wish harm on anyone. The madness, the hurting diffusiveness of the human condition gives rise to the monsters. We are all the monsters, and all of us are responsible for them... so if you damn them, you damn yourself.

And before you mouthbreathers, you- you knuckledraggers of dead weight on the ass-side of humanity respond to my blessing of the worst of us all, you ask yourself-

Did The Cold Dragon ever say that it damned the souls they hurt?

Did The Cold Dragon ever say that it wanted suffering for all those murdered or raped?

None of you have a right to cast a stone. Not one of you, and all of you reveal yourselves as what you are; Hate.

A game. A book. A story. A thought. A longing. An urge, a vocalized feeling.

Hide yourselves, all perverts and deviants of the world! HIDE! FOR THEY COME TO BURN YOU! Their mouths may not say it, but their souls scream it.

US? What is wrong with YOU? There's something, there is ALWAYS SOMETHING.

Only, there isn't ANYTHING that is wrong with you. You are a human being.

That's the problem. You are human... and you are infected with a meme that thinks all humans are the same, and must behave and act the same with the same morals and the same revulsions and the same values.

SAMENESS. That is what is wrong, the bleeding, bloating need for SAMENESS that people have. The comfort of the familiar and the friendly. The moral outrage that people vomit whenever they see something shocking to them, something that they feel SHOULD NOT EXIST!

It isn't about how it hurts you or hurts your children, it's about your fragile world being torn asunder by the naked face of reality! It's about the ugliness and uncontrollable nature of the REAL.

People want a fantasy to live in, they want their dreams and wishes and ideals to be given a physical form. The man behind the curtain, or the WOMAN, is never as grand or perfect as anyone would like to pretend.

So some people made a damn video game so that people who enjoy the control and fantasy of yielding to the primal nature of barbarism, and you think you are all BETTER than that. You all think you are so much further than these- these 'Sickos', so much more civilized.

There isn't more than a skein of imaginary fluff seperating you from these people. They themselves see themselves as people, but you do not... who is it that looks at you and secretly swallows their disgust and revulsion because of your religion? Your skin? Your FACE? Your POSITION? YOUR WEALTH! YOUR POVERTY!!! YOUR SPORTS!!!! YOUR INSANITY!!!! YOUR


HUMANITY!

Are they really out of idea at the gaming centers that they have to resort to a game like this??


It doesn't strike me as too odd. Japan releases some really perverted stuff. I'm surprised we were even allowed to hear about it.
