So why is this rated M again?

#1k debonairPosted 3/13/2012 3:59:49 PM
Up to chapter six so far, and there is nothing, I repeat, NOTHING, that warrants an M rating.

I've yet to see any blood, realistic violence, torture, drugs, sexually explicit scenes, or anything else of that nature.
I would even be hard pressed to give this a T rating. The only things I've noticed so far have been some coarse language (b-word), and one character possibly coming out of the closet, which shouldn't be a big deal at all. Even CFW Trick's licking scene was completely tame, since nothing was ever shown onscreen.

99% of the game is just girls talking about saving their countries and whatnot, with the occasional monster getting hit in the head.

Seriously, guys? Seriously?

Honestly Trick's dialogue is the only thing that comes to mind that could have gotten this game a M rating.

Trick and the Conquest ending.

I still disagree on conquest having anything to do with it as it's not brutal enough ,and censored for the most part .

In the esrb rating though the conquest ending isn't even hinted at lol.

Remember, this is america, where we take violence isn't anywhere bad as sex.

I think even the ESRB wouldn't spoil that, at least in my opinion. Violence is okay in America but not when it's with those individuals. That's why you rarely see that in games.
