But it seems that the ESRB just screwed Rockstar and the gaming populace by doleing out an AO rating for the game, know it doesen't sound like much but the problem lies in the fact that Sony,Nintendo, or Microsoft won't publish any game that gets an AO rating. If this decision is left to stand the game will not be released, sounds like no biggie now but it can only snowball from here it seems to me our chosen pastime is being demonized by politicians and the media.
Lets hope the rating gets reconsidered or else this may signal a grim future to come for freedom of expression and or speach in video games.

I agree that Manhunt is not exactly the posterboy game for freedom of expression but my gripe realy is that modern cinema can get a way with way more than a video game can and anytrime someone tries to push the envelope so to speak on a game and take the content to the extreme much like certian modern horror movies (take Saw for example) a game gets shot down for it.
