GTA 5 and my newfound respect for the ESRB rating

GameZone's Mike Splechta writes, "I never really paid much attention to ESRB ratings. Even as a younger kid, I was always able to tell right from wrong, fantasy from reality. Of course, violent games back then consisted of Twisted Metal and Carmageddon. Regardless, I knew that what I was doing in those games (running over innocent civilians) was all fiction." (Culture)

I just find it funny the amount of bare breasts and sex we are having in videogames now adays. GTAV is the perfect example with the paparazzi mission. The exact thing they got so much heat for in San Andreas, is perfectly out in the open in GTAV for all to access and see.

But it still got an M rating? Why even make the AO rating especially if no one will carry/support it?

ESRB, like any American regulatory branch, is a joke. F.O.H.

I agree with this article, its pretty much my feelings exactly. I have a 15-year-old daughter and I've never said 'no' to letting her play any games, and we usually play game together. But this one... is an exception.

The game is great, but after meeting Trevor, as well as that paparazzi mission, I knew I wouldn't be OK with her playing it. I'd just feel like was handing her porn. Ick.

Luckily she's not interested anyway.

However, I have gotten her to land a plane for me on a mission before. I just can't seem to get the hang of landing, and sadly she is better then me at it.

BTW, I feel I should clarify that I'm her mom... sometimes I get mistaken for a guy here, lol.
