CNN digs up old story about Japanese hentai games

    CNN and their Japan reporter Kyung Lah have dug up an old story about a game called “Rapelay.” It was a pretty big deal one or two years ago, but I guess somebody is still offended by all the vile crimes being committed against 2D characters:

    “It’s obviously very difficult to curtail activity on the Internet. But the governments do have a role in trying to regulate this sort of extreme pornography of children, both in their countries, and through the Internet ,” she said, adding that they were calling for the Japanese government “to ban all games that promote and simulate sexual violence, sexual torture, stalking and rape against women and girls. And there are plenty of games like that. ”

    Those games are known as “hentai games.” Almost all feature girlish-looking characters. Some of the games are violent — depicting rape, torture and bondage in detail.

    Hat tip to Magus, who sent us the following comment in his link submission e-mail:

    I last heard about RapeLay more than a year ago, and now it’s long past old news. But everyone’s favorite CNN Japan reporter probably decided that with US-Japan opinions not at their highest, now would be a great time to bring up the topic again like it was new.
