Parent charged with forcing kid to play GTA IV

Written by Nick Farrell



Made the kid play it for three weeks

A Japanese man has been arrested and charged with forcing his stepson to play violent Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) against his will. According to information from the Kyoto Prefectural Police Maasa Kawabata, a 28-year-old male nurse made the child play the game every day for the span of around three weeks, for about three hours every day while the child’s mother was not at home.

Japan’s Computer Entertainment Rating Organization has given GTA IV a “Z” rating, which means they are recommending that the game be played only by mature users 18 years old and up. In April 2013, the child had complained of headaches, stomach pain, and nausea.

The child was then diagnosed with a disorder called dysautonomia, and this could have possibly been caused by the stress the child experienced from being forced to play the game. The mother ditched Kawabata and moved out of the house. Kawabata was arrested just this week. Aside from making the child play GTA IV forcibly, the child also allegedly suffered from verbal abuse from Kawabata.
