interesting, where do you cross the line? Or should there even be a line? Video Games really attract kids, will the rating system really work? Oh and Leisure Suit Larry, Woo Hoo!

Fuck, let them do whatever they want. It's not like you can't buy worse over the internet as a DVD.

Yeesh, NOW what's going to happen? ...

Video games, like moves are a form of art and a form of free expression. While the ratings system doesn't work now, with some education and enforcement, it might begin to work. Hell, make sure the guy at EB cards some kid before selling them a game with a "Mature" rating.

I think it is great
Yes kids play games but the adult gaming market is huge..

All us kids that grew up with atari and nintendo.. well we are adults now and i think we shoudl be able to play adult themed games if we want

People in stores should just be sure they are not selling these games to kids.. and even if a parent is buying it be sure they understand what the rating means.. because kids will often just ask their parents for a game and of course the parents don't even look to see what it is..

Well, since kids can't get their hands on regular pornos, get into R-rated movies, or buy cigarettes or beer I don't see why making games with "AO" ratings wouldn't work...

I don't think they should have adult games. It has nothing to do with the children, but I suck at video games and it would be yet another medium for me not to score.

Nice guys finish allright after all

Oh, Eve, you're so unamerican. Yes to violence! No to the human body!

I was just thinking that this is typically American. Sure fighting games, various RPG-style, and action games get T or M ratings, they're still don't raise nearly the amount of criticism that these racy titles are getting. Even with things like GTA, one of the main sticking points on there was "Oh my goodness! You can pick up a prostitute, have sexual intercourse with her, then kill her and take her money!" Sure, shooting RPGs at incoming planes is fine, but pick up a hooker!
