Rape games become Platinum games for one Japanese company

The controversy over Japan's ... specialist ... gaming media continues following the RapeLay madness, with retailers and developers doing whatever they can to appear more clean and wholesome. Take, for example, PC download site BGameBox, a Japanese distributor known for its interactive erotic delights. It's found one way to sell rape games without fear of reprisal, by simply calling rape something else.

Rape games are now being sold under the "Platinum" category, which certainly sounds more refreshing and family-friendly. Meanwhile, the old "Sexual Training" category has now become the "Thoroughbred Category," which sounds even more derogatory, if you ask me. 

Although the categories have been renamed, the games within them could disappear at any time, without warning. As companies continue to clean up their act, the noble tradition of Japanese rape games will undoubtedly be forced to go underground or continue to get marketed under a different label. 

To be honest, I'd rather they just be called "Rape Games" rather than given some new title to make them appear less vile. Now people will just think they're buying MadWorld or Bayonetta from the Platinum Games section, instead getting a surprise when The Erotic Restraints of Miku & Her Milky Nipples arrives on their doorstep.
