We've known this for ages.

M rated games seem to sell the most even though over 50% of the people who play them shouldn't be playing it in the first place. I think that a lot of devs push for an M rating just becuase playing an M rated game is "cool" amongst the younger teens. They see E and T rated games as childish which imo is wrong.

A good example is Halo. I don't recall much blood, language, or anything really bad. The story is simple and not something kids can't see. To this day, I still don't understand why it's rated M.

Well, Guidelines are guidelines
Halo doesn't feel mature, but it still requires a recommended age of 17+

And since this isn't really important news I want to say that BFBC2 is going to tear a hole in MW2 and stomp it dry. This game is going to be the ultimate God-sent gift to all those COD players who have been shafted by IW's pathetic embrace of the casual market.

what yo didn't know is that it didn't just get a single M. It got several...

Mmmmmmmmm great game.

still havn't bought mw2...Though I play zero gear demo a lot

There was no way I could stop my younger brother from buying it on his 360 so I told him if he didn't buy it used he wasn't getting anymore games from me.

gamestop is $55 richer :)

will be pre-ordering the limited edition once it hits steam.

Well the beta didn't seem violent at all to me..I don't see heads blown off or limbs flying everywhere.
SprSynJn  +   2142d ago
It's possibly because they overuse the "strong language" that is present. They did in the beta at least.
Anti-Fanboyer  +   2142d ago
They've included body damage in the Realism Mode.
If that means limbs flying off.

ya but the second you hear some random guy scream "trash the f*****!!!" you know it'll be m haha

Most likely it was because of the blood. BC1 was rated T and didn't have blood at all.

I'm gonna guess and say the language if the early gameplay trailer was any indication. Still, rather disappointed.

it contains violence, blood, and strong language
This sounds like my kinda game. This is not made for little Timmy.
shutupandplay  +   2142d ago
Trust me, Little Timmy will find a way to get it.
MiloGarret  +   2142d ago
And little Timmy will make you know this by calling you a fág, nïgger, motherfücker, noob etc through the mic. Also little Timmy is likely to have slept with your mom, sister, and sometimes even your dad (yeah, I've heard little Timmy say that).

I hate little Timmy.

I haven`t even looked at a rating since I was like 12, back when I thought it was cool to own M rated games.

Kind of expected when I heard a NPC yell "Kill that mother ***ker" during the beta.

i thought it will be teen rating. but now its mature rating? i dont understand what's going on with this. is strong language help the sales?
(facepalm) uncharted 2 have alot of blood but it was teen rating, then why not mature rating. there is a pointless! anyways, i ll see about that.
