I'm not overly keen on calling cops or superheroes as heroes (I generally refer to Batman/Marvel stuff as comic book games/movies/shows) as it's water downing the meaning of being a hero and the real hero cops whilst also romanticising a job as heroic. Plus most cops I know are typically bit of bell anyway, same applies to people in the army whenever there are squaddies on a night out you know they are gonna be so annoying/causing trouble all night long.

@StarPoint Yeah, it's easy to expect previously announced games to appear in the next direct, especially since a couple of those games are nearing their planned release dates. That's what I think they'd cover, anyway. As for Metroid Prime 4, yeah...I'm not expecting news about that game at this point. I wonder how things are going with its development.

@VoidofLight He actually got upset about Final Fantasy XV and XVI being too violent, or something like that. XVI in particular has been given a mature rating, I believe. Just curious, what was that spin-off game called? The only FF game I played a good chunk of was VII.

@MarioLover92 Is FF Type-0 what you're asking about? I believe it was the first M-rated FF game.

@Sdelintwouters I am. I won't get my hopes up but I wouldn't be surprised if they announced one.

@Sdelintwouters We're all hopeful. "Will this week be the week? No? Well then perhaps next week." Will be the question everyone poses, week in and week out, until it actually happens.

And when it does happen, afterwards we immediately ask, "so when's the next one?"

@MarioLover92 Type 0, which was apart of the Thirteen mythos. Also, XV isn’t even that violent. Guess Anti hates Teen rated stuff too?

@Magician Ok, thanks! I looked it up and yes, it's M-rated all right. I'm no Final Fantasy super fan but you're probably right about it being the first M-rated one. I was just curious.

@Sdelintwouters There could be a chance that a direct would happen this month, there was one on February last year, but anything could happen. Personally, I'm just gonna wait until the next one gets announced.

@VoidofLight Thanks to you as well - as I just told Magician, I was curious. Yeah, I just saw some footage of FFXV and you're totally right - it's not Doom levels of violence, lol. I did see that it has real-time battles instead of turn-based ones (kinda like the FFVII remake), not that it's a bad thing of course. It does look like a pretty solid game in its own right.

FF XV has DLC costumes that i found it was from other rated M games (Type "FF XV costumes DLC" on Google image by yourself, i don't even want to mention their names even from my tongue).
When i found those things, FF XV was instantly banned + something wrong from the trailer i have ever watched that immediately i closed the video before even the trailer finished.

Btw, about rated Teen games.
Even when the games rated Teen, it doesn't mean i can bypass them easily.
I have to check their ESRB summary to see what contents inside to filter more the rated Teen games i found before i allowed them.
For example, Tales series started from Xillia and beyond. When i found "Blood" from ESRB rating and summary, the games will be instantly banned even they are rated Teen games. But if just only Mild Blood or Animated Blood + i have reviewed the ESRB summary, the games are still allowed for having minder level of disturbing contents.
I will instantly ban rated Teen games with "Strong lyrics", that means I will hear swearing or foul languages from the songs I hear. I have ZERO tolerance for any songs with cursing and foul languages on it.

@Anti-Matter Then you have a ton of games, which do the same, that you should probably blacklist then. Again, Final Fantasy 13 shares the same mythos with Type 0, which is a gritty and dark M rated game with blood and gore.

@MarioLover92 XV is much better now, since the updates fixed the story and made it more comprehensible, but I'm still bummed they canned a ton of stuff.

Don't worry, the games that i bought have passing my inspection before reaching my gaming area.
FF XIII itself (without their sequel) was still tolerable enough for me. From ESRB rating, it has Mild Language (like saying "Damn you", Lightning said that words), Suggestive theme and Violence, but no gritty things founded. From three age rating inspection, only Japanese and USA version passed but not for Europe version, so i can decide to approve FF XIII but i will only pick the USA version.

@Sdelintwouters
I have my gaming rules for approved age rating.
I only allowed rated Everyone, Everyone 10+, Teen, CERO A, CERO B, PEGI 3, PEGI 7, PEGI 12 games. The games with higher age rating than my gaming rules will not allowed to be played as I set my video game machines with very strict rules too (Parental control).
I set Parental control level 5 on PlayStation machines (only accept rated Teen + CERO B + PEGI 12 games). I set my 3DS machines with ESRB Teen for USA machine, CERO B for Japanese machine, PEGI 12 for European machine for the highest age rating I still allow to play.

Even the games are same, but if they have completely different age rating (Teen vs PEGI 16 from FF XIII for example), I only accept the version with approved age rating (i picked USA version since Europe version was rejected for being rated PEGI 16 as my machine only accept until PEGI 12) as long they are still acceptable contents based on age rating summary.

@Anti-Matter Why would you intentionally restrict yourself out of games for Age ratings? Don't you want to try those games with a higher rating at least? You never know what might strike your fancy

I will never ever want to play rated M games whatsoever reason.
I don't even want to know their existences.
They are extremely disgusting and offending for me, I felt extremely repulsed by their existences.
I have traumatic experiences in the past when I was kid by accidentally saw rated M games and movies with their gruesome stuffs and very inappropriate contents. As I grew up, I felt angry with those things that have ruin my brain and my childhood so I made a stance to hate every single rated M things and made a very strict gaming rules to protect myself from inappropriate things.
