Rapelay is a role playing game, which begins by letting a player choose a method of assault on a teenage girl at a subway. Gamers can grope her and lift her skirt. Players molest the girl, and even assault and rape her sister and mother. The ultimate goal of the game: to make the three women sex slaves, so the player can rape them whenever he desires to. When a girl gets pregnant, players have to force her to have an abortion.
A video game can be banned in Germany if it is confiscated by court orders because it violates a section of the Strafgesetzbuch (criminal code). Private possession (and thus playing it) and acquisition (such as downloading a demo from the Internet) are still legal, but any dissemination is not. The seller would break the law if a sale took place, not the buyer. However, on 10 December 2002, an \"Oberlandesgericht\" (higher regional court) in Hamm decided that a single sale of a single copy does not qualify as dissemination. Unlike indexing by the BPjM, which restricts the sale of all content-equal versions. Versions that are confiscated are enumerated in the court order. Being put on the index by the BPjM or, since April 1, 2003, being refused a rating by the USK, does not equal a ban. Rather, it imposes strict trade restrictions on the title. While only very few games have been confiscated, the list of indexed games is very long.
PUBG Mobile (excluding versions released exclusively in India) is banned because of extreme violence. The move came after a direction from the states of Gujarat and Jammu and Kashmir seeking a ban on the game, as it was claimed to affect the minds of youths. It was banned in the cities of Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara, Bhavnagar and Rajkot of Gujarat, as well as all of Jammu and Kashmir. Players have been prosecuted for playing the game. The game was later completely banned due to mishandling of data on 2 September 2020.
Video games are rarely banned in Japan, and it holds the place as one of the top video game producers in the world. However, for some games, usually western, they may edit or censor their games if they appear offensive to Japan; an example being the Japanese release of Fallout 3. \"The Power of the Atom\" quest was edited to relieve concerns about atomic detonation in inhabited areas and the Fat Man weapon was renamed to the Nuka Launcher due to its relation to the real historic event. Another example is the Japanese version of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back in which a death animation that has Crash squashed into a head and feet was altered due to its resemblance to the Kobe child murders. Japan's Spike removed all references to Kim Jong-il and North Korea in Homefront, as well. Resident Evil 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Bulletstorm, Gears of War 3, Grand Theft Auto V, Dead Island, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and numerous other violent titles, distributed physically and digitally, were heavily edited for excessive violence, but only on the localization level; the games can still be played if the locale is switched from Japanese to English. The Mortal Kombat series was subsequently banned in Japan, including its newest release, due to heavy amounts of violence. On 13 March 2019, the sales of Judgment had stopped producing future sales in Japan, following Pierre Taki's arrest on suspicion of cocaine use. As a result, Sega had replaced both the voice actor and the character model having been subsequently removed. As of November 2022, video game The Callisto Protocol has been banned in Japan. CERO would not be rating due to the game's violent content and the developer refused to make the necessary changes.
Though on March 10, 2015, the Turkish Ministry of Family and Social Services recommended a ban on Minecraft, specifically after online trolls sent videos (Made to make it appear as if it was featured in the original version of the game) of a modded Minecraft session featuring mods that included violence \"not suited for such a game aged for young children\" to big media outlets and television channels in Turkey, which then they made news covering the sent reports, and later catching the attention of the ministry and parents, resulting in such a recommendation. 
Minecraft has quite a large player-base in Turkey, and the ministry seeing such a game supposedly featuring violence being played by most of the young people in the country saw it as a big problem. However, the ban never took place, but the investigation stood on halt for sometime without any progression, later being dropped and forgotten.
Additionally, since August 2008, all video game titles of the Grand Theft Auto series have been completely banned in Thailand, because of a case where an 18-year-old Thai player supposedly influenced by Grand Theft Auto killed a taxi driver from Bangkok. The ban, however, does not extend to the digital PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V.

\"The potential negative effects are compounded by the fact that so many children are playing these games alone,\" stated Papadopoulos, who pointed to research from the Byron Review and Ofcom that said children are more susceptible to violence in games than other media.
Other recommendations by the report include launching an online website to allow the public to voice concerns regarding irresponsible marketing which sexualises children, and encouraging the government to support the Advertising Standards Agency to take steps to extend regulatory standards to include commercial websites.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, in this downloadable game, \"players earn points for acts of sexual violence, including following girls on commuter trains, raping virgins and their mothers, and then forcing them to have abortions.\"

Anonymous, are you really missing connections, not even connecting computer games in any way to desensitzation of human life and problems of unsupervised children with massive access to nudity and violence, increasing screen time and other matters My 14 year old high school students play some video games where they receive points if they rape some women during their online games \"to win\" and then use language when they talk about it. She was just a whore anyway as if some people count and some do not and the ones who do not get what they deserve. They have little empathy at times. I may not know as much as you about gaming culture but I do not want games where women or men are raped. Aliens then people are killed online or in games, then people are raped online, and where will this lead to next, and have you no concern about this If we were less violent, I would not be awake at this hour working on cyber-policies and thinking about what I or we can do. Games are amazing and no one was putting down games in general. It is sometimes the culture in which I worry, and not everyone, but the few who cannot even take 5 before responding to a post, putting down the authors rather than arguments, to avoid thinking deeply for even a moment, or to avoid thinking about the big picture, even if you disagree with some assertions. 153554b96e
