The ESRB is a joke.

Media needs a single, unified rating system to be applied to everything. Digital games, retail games, movies, books, whatever.

And it should probably be the MPAA rating system because that's the one most people are familiar with.

The MPAA is a far bigger joke than the ESRB. I wouldn't want them anywhere near games.

I didn't say, "let the MPAA do it," I said, "use their rating system."

If Call of Duty were rated R instead of M, there'd be a lot fewer ten-year-old-twats playing it, for example.

You don't really think that an "R" rated CoD would really weed out the tweens do you? Kids are going to get the games they want no matter what the rating.
A special thanks to mom and dad.

How about the responsibility just goes back to the parents?
