Rape Lay: Has it gone too far?

You saw the scandal when Grand Theft Auto came out. The violence and gore had parents all over the world up-in-arms.

Turns out, Grand Theft Auto is as clean as Pac-Man compared to a new Japanese video game that’s out.

The game’s called Rape Lay. It begins with a girl, her sister and mother on a train platform. They get on the subway and you, as the videogame player, can begin your sexual assault of all of them. Grope and rape – all part of the game.

And the game's gone viral – people all over the world can play it.

Women’s groups are appalled. Others say it’s just a game.

Our question: A rape video game, do we really have to go there?

Post your comments here. Kyra will read some of them live in the 10am ET hour of Newsroom
