Dark Souls II Rated 'T' By ESRB...Really

Twinfinite writes, "From Software's upcoming Dark Souls II has been given its age rating by the ESRB, and it's frankly a little surprising. While it's been granted a 'T for Teen' rating, the description doesn't sound too far off what one would expect from this game or series." (Dark Souls 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Dont really matter I dont really think of either Demon Souls or Dark Souls as a mature game. Maybe this one dont have boobs like Dark Souls. I will miss you giant lady in Anor Londo

It's funny how tits vs no tits is the line that separates a rating from Teen and Mature. Blood, some swearing and breast are fine but the second a nipple is shown..

You ask me the rating system is stupid. Halo gets rated M for blood and violence (1 or 2 said a couple curse words not even b or f word though usually just bastard). It is funny though Halo has like mega block toys and a section in toys at stores

Separating nudity from kids is not a bad idea. I don't see the issue on that ^^.

As for the rating system i agree with you guys , it's stupid.

Only dudebros would be bothered by this. As long as it's an amazing game, then I could hardly care about the age rating.
Neixus  +   168d ago
I honestly don't care about Age rating, aslong as it's a good game.
Take LBP for example, one of the best ''kid'' game i have played.

LBP's the most awesomely complicated "Kiddy" game ever made!

It just shows that the ESRB rating is random. How can you compare GTA V's M rating to Dark Souls'. Can't remember nudity, sex or swearing in Dark Souls.
AntoineDcoolette  +   168d ago
Or maybe the ESRB is just getting more lenient.

On the esrb rating description it also states gore, and in previous games gore used to be an immediate M rating, partial nudity has been in teen games before but I've never seen gore in teen games before. It just makes me curious as to what kind of gore/(partial) nudity or what not makes the line of T to M rating.

I always wondered why the Halo series is rated M.

I dont know, them Confetti headshots can get pretty crazy.
Retard  +   168d ago
It was never gore heavy. Hmm

Whatever will we do with our slightly covered boobs and our conservative distribution of torture devices, surely there is no hope now.

Could be a way to boost sales, but at the cost of nudity and "touching the demon inside her".
kalebninja  +   168d ago
watch it sell less because of this one of my dumbass friends got tight when I said it was t and I was like are you seriously one of those dumbasses that the esrb rating has an effect on whether you buy it or not? I hate those ppl
eyeDEVOUR  +   168d ago
