This again captured my attention with Arche Age being rated "M" for mature.
Everyone is negatevly impacted by this. Companies are forced between making games that are less "original" or gaining more revenue. The younger audience also has less freedom and more restriction as well as our games becoming worse quality. And just think about how much extra time you've spent bothering to "sign up" or clicking to put some age to view material on the internet.
I am surprised this ESRB thing still exist in todays society. It is a direct example of how primitive mankind is still in comprehending the law. If all is certain the longer this remains it will do far more damage to the image and state of the justice system and on top far more people will get hurt and suffer because of this law than without it.
And for those who will try to argue with me why this ESRB system should remain, I'll just silence you right now.
I was between 6-8 year old when I got my hands on some pornographic magazines. It was a huge benefit and privilege to be raised in a country where I could experience all possible games since my early childhood and have parents that didn't mind that. By having access to "adult" type material if all I was far more aware than anything else.
I was in no way anyway "harmed" so that itself proves that there cannot be a law about it. You just wait and watch what happens to all those who try to limit our freedoms and add more unnecessary restrictions as time goes by.
