an M rating never stopped parents from buying the games for kids in the past, this is not going to stop them now

Games should be un-rated, as books are.

I'm very happy ESO got the "M" rating, really opens it open for creative expression without any ridiculous restrictions.

A few brothels added where you can recruit mercenaries should cement the M rating.

Not that it matters when it comes to "safety" - kids just watch it on youtube.

If children or young teens really are to be "protected" then there shouldn't be "Let's play... " or similar easily accessible. Youtube's "protection" is a joke.

Sure, not that I am a psychologist in terms of judging "watching" versus "doing".... But if you want to rate the one, maybe you should rate the other as well, what's the point otherwise?

Just saying...

The only people I have yet to encounter that view ratings as relevant are the same people that follow the teachings of their antiquated religions.  Generally inconsequential creatures, honestly.

What did you expect the games story is about a demon who harvests peoples souls. The storyline is definitely a mature one.

 

Up till Skyrim, all of TES games kept it T rated. 

The funny thing is that Skyrim is the least mature game in the franchise.

Ratings on games is stupid anyways.  I remember playing the original Mortal Kombat as a kid,  I didn't go out setting people on fire or pulling people's hearts from their chests lol.

 

I hope they embrace the M rating and make it more graphic.  This is the one thing I absolutely loved about Age of Conan.  They were going for an M rating, and didn't care what that meant.  It's all a joke though, the ESRB that is.  Anyone that goes out and kills or hurts people because of a game, music, movie, tv, or whatever they want to blame it on, was already messed up in the head.

If you weren't aware, finesse is no longer being used in the game, and to my knowledge there's been no talks of kill-cams either.

Do people actually pay attention to the ratings? I do not have kids but lets say you buy a 12yo a MMORPG do you look at the rating to decide?

I'm glad for the rating. Hopefully it will keep out the kiddies.

Up till Skyrim, all of TES games kept it T rated. 

With MMOs its different, there are certain rules and regulations that must be followed.

No they didn't.  Oblivion originally got a Teen rating, but was switched rather quickly to an M rating as soon as people got wind of mods.  I have the GOTY edition lying on desk with my other game DVDs and its plain as day.

 

Not to mention, family game night is going by the wayside?  Guess what, my 6yr old will be playing with me most likely.  The rating is placed their for convience for the uniformed parent that doesn't have a clue about their child's hobby.  In my case, its my hobby that my son tags along with.  The content maybe "M" rated such as the storyline and options you can use in game due to bonuses they give you (Take some sort of drug or drink and have a positive or negative effect)  My son isn't going to care about do much more than smashing monsters with his dad and getting stronger, and collecting different pets if their are options for that.

I don't know about "better" writing but it allows more honest writing considering the subject matter.

People just misunderstand what this rating means. All it means is that parents who are concerned about what their kids watch/read/play can make informed decisions.

Some parents don't care and some parents care but will have a challenge keeping this stuff from their children (let's face it, if a "kid" wants to see/play this stuff then they will. It does (or can) open up dialog during the child's development.

"No" it won't keep the "kiddies" away and "no" it doesn't mean that it will be a better product for it. It does mean that since these games have subject matter that can be violent or disturbing that the content can be more honest and impactful and not have to skirt around certain things.

This is a good thing, it allows for more creative development freedom.

 

Just look at the GuildWars 2 'living story' and how horrid that is because it is written to entertain children.
