I am really starting to get pissed, just as soon as I think that the community is starting to show hope, BF:V comes along and blows that thought out of the water.I was kinda wondering why most games with successful communities have ESRB ratings of M. The bad part about it is that the only reason I can come up with is the fact that the pre-teen's aren't involved in it at any degree as they are in this. I have always been annoyed at people who make posts like this but now I suddenly find myself agreeing with them.

At this rate I am almost wishing that they add decapitation and other forms of mutilation as well as a curse word or 2 to make sure BF:V gets a M rating.

its ea's fault

there gready as hell. they should be proud that more people are making and playing mods then buying there crappy expantion packs(which btw have about as much stuff as a alpha mod in them) they just want 2 hog the spot light. why do u think they wanted 2 ban all mods in the 1.4 patch????? because people were cheating???. so they cant ban mods so they make a game 2 wipe em out.. real mature.

take this ea:spank: :moon:

They're trying to control the modding community, not destroy it. Thats stupid even for EA -- IIRC they were giving advice to mod teams on how to get there mods working with 1.4..... 1.4 slowed down the modding community though, and destroyed Texturesets.

The rating of the game has absolutely no affect what so ever on the gaming community whats Counterstrike Rated? In New Zealand atleast its R16 I think, that hasn't stoped the servers being filled with noob 13 year olds with l33t skillz.

BF: Vietnam will likely get a T rating (or whatever the equivalent is in other countries) simply because they can sell more copies of a T-rated game than an M-rated one. It's now illegal in some areas for minors to purchase Mature-rated games, and that means lost sales to EA. I don't think we can expect to see a lot of blood or gore, just as in '42.

What we CAN expect is an invation of stupid n00b morons WhO tAlK lIkE tHiS 0r 7H15 who think they're all that and a bag of chips. Sadly they'll never go away.

Yea but those people have always been around Maybe i've missed something, as I said. Ratings have nothing to do with it -- as far as I know its always been iliegal for shops to sell kids restricted games, its just now they're being a little more strict on it. It doesn't matter though, regardless of the rating there will always be kiddies.

I dident get why battlefield was rated M for mature. When it came out there was no blood and killing each other wasent that graphic, well at least in my opinon.
