A group of four US senators consisting of Joe Lieberman, Sam Brownback, Evan Bayh and Hillary Clinton have called for the controversial snuff 'em up to be rated an AO as opposed to it's current rating of M.
They wrote to the ESRB:
‘We ask your consideration of whether it is time to review the robustness, reliability and repeatability of your ratings process, particularly for this genre of 'ultraviolent' video games and the advances in game controllers. We have consistently urged parents to pay attention to the ESRB rating system. We must ensure that parents can rely on the consistency and accuracy of those ratings’
It's funny how films like Hostel don't quite cause the same level of uproar isn't it?
Eastenders and Corronation Street is more violent then this GAME because the soaps is real life (albeit acting) where as this is just a game.
What happened to freedom of choice?
I think the argument is that you watch a film with no involvement- you actively kill people in games.
But thats not to say I agree. Personally, I think its a load of tosh blaming games for something that is the country's fault.
