Shocking: Left 4 Dead Rated M by ESRB

Well, shockingly, Left 4 Dead was rated "M" by the ESRB for PC and Xbox 360. Apparently, the projectile vomiting, exploding corpses, undead prehensile tongues, disembowelings, decapitations, blood, gore, and general mayhem warranted the harsh rating.

Honestly, "Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Language"? The ESRB can be so moralistic and exclusive - this is a perfect game for kids. It teaches them how to survive a zombie apocalypse. Letting them play is actually a civic duty.

Are you looking forward to this sweet, casual education game?


[The British Board of Film Classification has given Left 4 Dead a rating of 18.]

I thought they were being sarcastic.

The gore in the game absolutely warrants the Mature Ratings.

Is this really news? Anyone who has seen the vids could have drawn that conclusion. I am so looking forward to this title.

in my opinion, in a perfect world, the most intense gore would be rated PG13. And same for plain nudity.

(btw I know the title is a joke. Just saying)
