Does HATRED really have an AO rating from the ESRB?

Looking into Twitch's announcement that AO rated games are banned from the site, and the fact that Hatred has been banned for supposedly having an AO rating from the ESRB. So far there has been very little evidence to support the claim that Hatred was rated by the ESRB at all, and if that is true, Twitch is banning the game for no other reason than they just don't like it.

As I'm watching this video, all I hear in the background is violins going off..

So this game can't be on twitch? 😈Good hehe.

its all these people on their moral high horse wanting this game banned that is going to make me buy multiple copies of this game and giving them out on steam

Stuck between a rock and a hard place here. I think the Matt raises some good points about Twitch being a bunch a D-bags and treating their users like trash and the Hatred devs doing what we all knew they were trying to do, which is ride shock value " a la the 90s" all the way to the bank

I feel like they could of handled this differently. Like you must be 18+ to watch this stream or something like other sites do. The average age of a gamer is like 30 so I don't see why they must be so restrictive.

I care only about two things. Will Hatred get ratings above 5,5/10 on websites that did not bash the game and its violence before. And will it be a fun game for myself.

After gameplay videos have been released, there's really nothing in the game that makes it "worse" than any other violent game out there. Just an unnecessary moral panic.


Most likely. The game looked dull from the start and it still does today.

Something like the old Smash T.V or Total Carnage games look pretty dull and stupid too but they can be pretty fun for a lot people. If Hatred is anything like that It might be good on a hard difficulty. Mods might add some really fun ideas too for this game
