EOCS makes it final decision: rape games are banned

0

So, this seems like the final update in the whole rape game saga: The EOCS has met, with about 100 representatives total gathering, and reached the nearly unanimous decision that rape games should be banned. Going into the meeting, it seems as though that was pretty much the only available option in the face of the news storm surrounding the genre. No vote was held, but at the same time, no one found it absurd that rape games should be banned.

The details over what this means though -- what's acceptable and what's not -- is still up in the air. The EOCS will be working with each of the companies to try and help them adjust their titles, until they can make a body of regulations from all this. So, while we are seeing the EOCS take a step back automatically, they are at least doing their most to make sure the companies aren't getting overly screwed here.

And really? I'm not at all surprised by the actions. It fits with the mindset of a Japanese corporation or business group. I had my hopes that since the companies were mainly made up of younger people -- or at least that's what I'd assume -- they'd be a bit more open-minded and willing to fight the good fight. But, they are a niche industry, and they want to avoid government intervention.
