View Full Version : I just realized over half of my 85 game collection is M-rated (17+).

I realize there are a lot of European users here, and many may or may not be familiar with America's rating system. Basically, M (for Mature) is is to only be bought by those 17 or older, often containg realistic violence, blood and gore, and heavy amounts of profanity.

I just turned 17 a week ago, but over half of my game collection (85 games) are all M-rated anyway. Just thought it was kind of funny.

My tomb raider 3+4 double CD is rated 11+, but 'The Movies' is 16+ !

tomb raider is much scarier and gory than the movies!

The ratings system seems strange in the UK, all my games seem to use a different system of rating.

I know i dont get it.... in the UK we have certificates like movies 15 AND 18 in them red circles... yet 16+ is just displayed normally on the front... how silly is that!

just out of curiosity are any fellow Americans following the whole game violence controversy going on here?

I don't know about games, but most of my DVD's are 18-rated. :D

Most of my games are 11+, but a few are 3+ and some are 16+, I just can't understand, like Mattster said, why is The Movies rated 16+? I would think it's fine if it only were a "Make Horror Movies" game! Since I creeped out when I made the monster for the movie I have posted here in the fan-work forum! That's MO (My Opinion]
