Offensive Japanese Game "Rapelay" Banned from The UK
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But Amazon has now withdrawn the game after complaints from users, deeming it to be inappropriate.
Thoughts on the RapeLay Video Game
Players begin the game by stalking a mother on a subway station before violently raping her. They then move on to attack her two daughters described as virgin schoolgirls.
Players are also allowed to enter ‘freeform mode’ where they can rape any woman and get other male game characters to join the attacks.

Video games: the permissibility of murder but not rape
Remember Grand Theft Auto: Someone released a patch so you could see your character having sex with women, that wasn't even rape, it was love making. The result was a public outcry for the game to be banned. The game already had an 18 certificate, you could commit mass murder, steal cars, beat people up, take drugs, drink & drive, rob shops, commit burglaries, gamble and break into government facilities. But as soon as it showed a man having sex with a consenting woman, it went too far.
