Thread: They REALLY need to change the "Mature" rating... | Forums

    I've always been really annoyed by this. When a game has vulgar language and crude humor or sexual content or over explicit violence, they somehow call that "mature." I REALLY do not see what's so mature about that kind of vulgarity. Really, most to all mature people are not interested in that kind of cheap thrill. I speak of maturity as a mental maturity and not chronological maturity because I feel chronological age has little to nothing to do with one's maturity. I'm reading some article on a game that has a lot of sexual content in it and vulgar language and it talks about "mature language." I don't see how that is relevant, people that talk like that are in no way mature, quite the opposite.

    I think instead of "Mature" they should redo the ratings to simply what the minimum age is. I mean, really, don't that make sense? Right now, you see Teen, Mature, Everyone, and really, sometimes you won't know what ages they mean until you go look it up. Wouldn't it actually simplify the process of shopping if they simply labeled everything with "12+" "infants+" "18+" then you know simply without having to consider if your 13 year-old child is considered a teenager or not. What do you guys think?

    I don't know, can't really tell by text alone, really, you can type completely different than how you talk, but you sound fairly mature, but if you're under 18 you still are not allowed to legally buy these games, hehe.

    Take a wild guess. Cmon, just do it. If you were to look at the way I type and assess how old I was, how old would I be?

    Like I said, I don't think maturity has anything to do with chronological age, I've met people who are like 30 who act like they are coming out of grade-school and people who are like 14 who act like they should be writing for a respected newspaper somewhere, but I guess I'll just randomly throw out a number, don't take any of this personally because it really doesn't say anything about how I feel you are. But 19?
