ELSPA proposes traffic-light games ratings

Hang on, have we not seen these somewhere before?

Rival ratings body the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) unsurprisingly dismissed ELSPA's suggestion, stressing that its own colour-coded logo system is already well-established and well-understood, particularly by game-buying parents.

"Rival ratings body the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) unsurprisingly dismissed ELSPA's suggestion, stressing that its own colour-coded logo system is already well-established and well-understood, particularly by game-buying parents."

How so?

You only have Green for U, Yellow for PG, Light Red for 12 and 15 and Dark Red for 18!

Na, I'll pass on the BBFC.

*sigh*

Just fall under the PEGI system, that way, their jobs are made easier and everybody's a winner.

whose jobs are made easier?

PEGI is not understood by non-gamers (parents that buy games, particularly) and is not legally enforceable - it is utterly useless unless it is given a MASSIVE marketing push and legal teeth.

Wish they'd just stop f*cking squabbling and agree so that we can finally move on from this and get back to talking about games.
