This rape simulation game from Japan is seriously disturbing. But why should I be any less disturbed by games that simulate murder? It's the same with comics; I find the idea of rape comics disturbing but am totally unfazed by superheroes (or villains) killing any amount of people. Am I taken in by transparent moral framing? He had to kill all those people in that video game--they were Nazis!!! This seems unsatisfactory, even as I acknowledge that hearing children play "murder the random stranger" would be disturbing in a way that hearing them play "kill the bad guys" is not.
