Hey AT, dunnow if any of you check out 1up.com and have been following this story but I have and here is the links



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 think the big difference is in cinema you're just an observer, passive storytelling. With a game, you control the action, you make the choices, and with the wii, you even enact the motions. Its an entirely different experience, and has to be judged accordingly.

And just like the AO with games, NC-17 with films is also a "death note". Because many cinemas won't play films with a rating higher than R, you'll never turn a profit on a NC-17, so the studios cut and trim the film down to R or PG-13 to get more money.
