GTA V Rated ‘M’ By ESRB

In what is probably the most obvious news of the day, the ESRB has handed Grand Theft Auto V an M rating for its mature themes. Apparently, as expected, it has some violence, blood, strong language, and strong nudity among other things.

GTA V ESRB Rating:

Intense Violence
Blood and Gore
Mature Humor
Strong Language
Strong Sexual Content
Use of Drugs and Alcohol

Grand Theft Auto V will be released on September 17 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm surprised. I was expecting an E rating. What do I tell little Timmy O Toole now? He so badly wanted to run over an old lady just once before he died. :'(

Are you offering a shoulder to cry on then ??
ABeastNamedTariq  +   633d ago
WHAT? Are you kidding me? /s

The sad thing is, even with all those descriptors, the parents of many 12 year olds will get their kid this game, say "Here you go Timmy!", and let the game do the babysitting and parenting. Then when they see what actually goes on in the game they'll be outraged and go to a senator (or lawyer, etc.) to try and tax or ban violent games because "children shouldn't have access to this". -_- I see it coming.

my parents always bought me M rated games
surprisingly enough they never complained about it.
the reason being that they told me that video games
are different from reality.

Have you ever tried simply turning off the TV, sitting down with your children, and hitting them?
Salooh  +   631d ago
Violence didn't effect me when i was a kid. You can cut someone head and torture him in that game and i wouldn't feel anything , i saw that in real life and made me sick so that prove to me violence in video games don't do anything as long you acknowledge the difference between reality and games. But nudity does , so i wouldn't recommend any one to let their kids play a game that include it. There is a reason that we feel bad about it. That's really important in my opinion ..

jjb1981  +   631d ago
No way! You mean driving around the city with a dead body stuck to hood of your car while getting chased by the FBI while continuing to do drive-bys in a stolen car requires an M rating? I can't wait! Regardless of the M rating thousands of kids are going to get their grubby little paws on this.
