there's barely any blood, no gore at all, no swearing, no sexual content
the uncharted games are way more violent and they have swearing and sexual content and they're rated T, makes no sense
The ESRB process involve panels for each individual game, so the standards aren't completely objective,
I agree Halo shouldn't have been rated M though --- Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG. Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.
Did the ESRB even play the damn game? The first game didn't have any blood or gore, or nudity....if I can remember correctly. Second one had blood, but seriously, nothing that can get a M rating. --- :D
fallout 3 God of war Dmc silent hill postal 2 GTA 1-4
A game that features a drug addiction mechanic, prostitution, slavery and limb by limb decapitation. Yeah, definitely shouldn't be M rated.
Don't even get me started on your other suggestions...
I don't recall seeing slavery in GTA.
fallout 3 and to the people saying halo go look at the flood again that why it's M.
Because they are lumps of gurgling brown?
Yeah, I'm not sure why the flood would make it rated M, they're like the tame version of the long line of parasitic aliens in sci-fi. They weren't any more bloody or violent than anything else in the Halo universe.
Being a malformed abomination wouldn't really make it M rated I would think. Terran infested Marines which are essentially Starcraft version of the same thing don't make Starcraft rated M.
Persona 4 (for those who actually played and know) had a Persona named Mara that looked like a schlong. There's no doubt the ESRB wasn't going to let that slip by on the NA version especially knowing the numnuts out there on game forums who were making a big deal out of it ... not to mention the names and looks of some of the other Persona.
Don't worry, though. I don't expect some people to think outside the box or step into the shoes of someone else ... at least not here. That would require using common sense and we don't see that often here anymore. --- She blinded me with region .... Yuki Nagato, Mafuyu Oribe, Kurumu Korono, and Himari Noihara FTW
