I mentioned it to some friends and we've been having an interesting discussion about it.

Reading about this game puts an me at an ill feeling of disgust and curiosity. I realize it is just a video game, but its sole purpose is to rape. I'm bothered by the game because of what rape is. A rape victim is stripped of their humanity, they didn't ask to be raped and this game is a horrible reminder, even it they don't play it.

But then there are war games, men and women have been to war, and these well done war games may really have an impact on veterans, and still War games are generally accepted

I'm curious what slashdotters have to say in thea area of games and their social effect?"
