Rated M for Questionable Content: An Argument for Vulgarity Over Maturity

Analog Addiction writes: "Maturity. Typing it leaves a sting on my fingers. Saying it; a sour taste in my mouth. So-called auteurs of the gaming industry speak of it as though without ‘maturity’, the videogame can never be considered art. As though that if we don’t put tasteful nudes, high-polygon graphics, crying-physics, and a story about the human condition, then Roger Ebert, a person only interested in writing about cinema, will never say that games “are kinda okay, I guess” (not an actual quote from Roger Ebert). It’s gotten so bad that I’ve begun needing to imagine the word ‘mature’ with a small © next to it, because let’s face it, maturity has become more of a checkbox than a concept." (Industry, The Binding of Isaac)
