it had better be rated mature because then the game will have blood and gore and other fun visuals that wouldnt be there if it was rated teen.

What happens when a sword gets run through your chest? Or a switchblade digs into your neck? Rainbows and leperchauns don't fly out...warm red blood does. It is called realism man...i am not talking GTA blood, more like Rainbow Six Vegas blood.

Realistically, anything but M wouldn't make sense, though it shouldn't be as bad as most M games, IMO. Simply due to the nature of the game, there will be violence, and if Ubi hasn't suffered massive head trauma, there will be blood, but realistic blood not God of War blood (pretty gyser of blood erupting from the minotaurs mouth...). I doubt/hope language will be a problem, I don't see nudity being in the game (but it could still happen... *sigh*) and drugs are unlikely as well.

That's also not counting what the individual classification boards for each country might say too! For example here in the UK we have the BBFC and their ratings are part of the Law (any retailer/sales clerk caught selling a game with high rating (e.g 15,18) to a minor faces a fine and a jail term. Where as PEGI is simply a guideline rating with no Laws behind it.

I would have to say Mature, just because of the blood. Almost every game that has blood in it is rated M.

This is quite a good question even if the answer is obvious, M by far if there goin for realism they'll need M to justify. I do feel bad for those kids that can't get a game based on it's rating because it's just that a game parents should sit down with there kids and say "Hey this is a game it's not real it's for you to have fun with so don't think you can stab people in the eye with a switchblade."that would probably cut down on the whole "My son kiled three people because he thought he was a character from GTA." oh and this might sound stupid but how do i get an avatar and a picture by my name??? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

If we take a kid who hasn't played M games all his life - and by kid I mean from 8 to 10 or 12 - and we take another one who always play those games, you will see that their reaction to blood baths, violence or bad language will be different. One can't argue about that.

These test that show the M games have no influence on kids are obviously founded by the gaming industries who want more money. Because let's be honest, if you are 12 years old, and all you play is blood, guns, dead people, violence, swearing, cursing and cold-blooded-killing, what you will see will be carved into your brain since you are young and the young are influenced very fast. You may not see these infuences clearly, but you will see them when these kids fight, or argue..etc

Opening up an debate about videogame violence increasing aggression? I'm in. My oppinion? Pure fiction.

The logical flaws in the arguement I thought were easily seen. A few being:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by vgvn.org:
Violent crime, particularly among the young, has decreased dramatically since the early 1990s while video games have steadily increased in popularity and use. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by vgvn.org:
Many games with violent content and sold in the United States and some with far more violence ¿ are also sold in foreign markets. However, the incidence of violent crime in these non-U.S. markets is considerably lower than in the United States. This suggests that the cause of violent crime lies elsewhere. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Independent studies show that there is no link between increased aggression and playing violent videogames. A few of the studies include:

Williams, D. & Skoric, M. "Internet Fantasy Violence: A Test of Aggression in an Online Games." 2005.

Olson, C. "Media Violence Research and Youth Violence Data: Why Do They Conflict?" Academic Psychiatry, 28:2. 2004

Bensley, L. & Van Eeenwyk, J. "Video Games and Real-Life Aggression: Review of the Literature." Olympia, WA: Washington State Department of Health. 2002.

Egenfeldt-Nielsen, S., et al. "Playing With Fire: How Do Computer Games Influence the Player?" Commissioned by the Danish Government and published by the Unesco Clearinghouse on Children, Youth and Media. 2004.

All of these studies say the same thing, violence in videogames does not increase violence/aggression in teens/children.

I've heard people rant about how there are more fights in school than there were when they were kids. As someone going through this school system right now I find that to be completely untrue. In the past few years I've been in three different schools(Due to my family moving)in two different states, what i've seen is a grand total of two fights in my 10 years of schooling. That doesn't sound like many fights at all to me.

I think people who make claims that videogames are ruining their children are just bad parents. I've played violent videogames with my older brothers since I was 8, now being 14 i've yet to be in a single fight.

Bahaha. No need to surrender, I probably come off as sounding really angry which I really wasn't haha.

I assume the ratings are there because even if it doesn't increase violence then it could give kids the knowledge of some things that some parents may not want their kids to see, such as sexual acts, language etc. etc.

It could also be kind of shocking for the kids to see such violent acts.

Bahaha. No need to surrender, I probably come off as sounding really angry which I really wasn't haha.

It could also be kind of shocking to the children to see such violent acts.

I assume the ratings are there because even if it doesn't increase violence then it could give kids the knowledge of some things that some parents may not want their kids to see, such as sexual acts, language etc. etc. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Exactly. Parents might see the rating, see why it's there, and then decide if it's appropriate for their children to play or not. Just like movies.

Yea that's true but we weren't arguing about whether or not the ratings are helpful but whether or not the violence in videogames makes children more violent.

That's exactly what i thought when i looked up ratings for the game! Not only is ESRB confusing at times, but its also vague and other descriptions are way overexaderated. PEGI has a much better age system i think. But above all, i think that they should do away with ratings completely, no matter what studies say games do to kids because it's the parents' responsibility to protect their kids. Besides, I believe that video games should be protected by Free Speech (in the U.S. anyway, i don't know if europe or anywhere else has that law. Seems weird not to have it anyway) and should not be subject to ratings.

Lets not make this a Larry King Live Forum Please. Lets keep this friendly and non political.

The game should be rated M because...well...i want it to be realistic. And as the gameplay looks with the fountains of blood, it is riding the fence, leaning alittle towards M.

I know what you are saying and realized that a long while ago . I'm just saying games should be protected the same way literature is protected (yes I know that some books are banned), you know. They are given reviews, but not ratings. Some books are scarrier and more gruesome and vulgar than any movie or game, but do they get an "M" or "AO"? No. That's what I meant by games being protected by Free Speech and believe me, I am not naive enough to think that speech is actually free. And the only reason people get in so much trouble for the things they say is because a lot of people look for things that may be taken offensively and they exploit it. A good example of this is in a "Extras" episode where the main character accidentaly makes fun of a kid with down syndrom and he gets exploited, even though he didn't know that the kid had down syndrom. Sorry for getting really off topic.

I think it will eventually be rated M but that Ubi wants it to be rated T because if you notice, when you kill someone, they don't bleed out. Usually in M games people bleed out. But due to the realism and how you kill people, i think it will be M.

Hey, first of all, I would like to say "HI!", as I'm new to the forums.

On to topic:
If you look at any trailer/demo (at least in Europe) PEGI rates it 16+ .I personally cannot buy games that are 18+ (or M as Americans call it) because I'm 14.
Anyway, who said that an 18+ or M rating makes it realistic?

sireatsalot91
07-16-2007, 12:07 AM
yea, some M games are pretty unrealistic, like that one that Microsoft keeps saying will be so awesome because it looks magnificent and because it came out w/a beta for extra info on "hot spots" and whatnot. Whats that game called again...oh yea, Halo 3. I'm still bettin it'll be M.

Definatly going to be M, you don't go around stabbing people in the neck, head and stabbing a sword through their chest without it being mature....and who ever came up and voted for Early Childhood...you...are...a..god.
