The Independent Game Rating System, or TIGRS, has received a major overhaul to incorporate a sleeker and more accessible design. The voluntary ratings system was originally unveiled two years ago as a way for indie developers to label their games and help warn parents of any objectionable content.
The problem with a voluntary system such as TIGRS is a little word called "accountability". While most developers would use the logos responsibly, it would only take a few naughty people to ruin the whole thing. And considering the trouble the ESRB has been into after the Hot Coffee fiasco, do indie games really need that kind of exposure?
