Arkham Knight: What’s Up With the Rating?

IM PLAYIN discuss the 18/mature rating given to the latest Batman game.

"Developer Rocksteady has forever established their legacy by creating what are the greatest Batman games of all time. Regardless of which way you look at it, the Arkham series is unmatched in creating an incredible Batman experience. However, that doesn’t just involve beating up thugs and gliding around. It also comes with the dark, gritty atmosphere that made Batman what he is today."

Awesome! Simply awesome. Comic books and video games are intended for all people of all ages. I hate when narrative is gimped to meet a teen audience.

There is enough space for games for adults.

Yep Im glad they didnt mess with their original vision after hearing it got the M rating. As much Im looking forward to Rocksteady's final Batman I cant wait to see what they do next.

i have always been a fan of over the top animations in videogames. However, not really a fan of that on the silverscreen. Gow ascension's only good element was the detailed brutality, Dead space's loud over the top leg stomp are only a few of the things that i remember made the experience better.

I am a huge fan of the arkham games, adding an adult rating is the cherry on top for me. bone fracturing, dislocating and gritty brutality could be the best decision Rocksteady have decided to go with.
Can't wait for this.

Bloodborne MGS Batman maybe in that order are hopefully gonna be highlights of this gen,will be for me at least.

I'm curious as to how Arkham Knight earned it's M rating as well, but I doubt it'll take it's M rating over the top. The developers were shooting for a T rating from what it sounds like and were surprised when it came back as Mature so it's really anyone's guess at this point.
