What Rating Do You Want CU to Have

LawtoweenLawtoween Houston, TXPosts: 103Member

I'm using the movie ratings since I know them much better than the game ratings.  I realize they don't have a 1-to-1 correlation.

Personally I am hoping for no more than PG-13 (and possibly PG depending on whether that's even possible with a game that is based on battles).  The reason I favor this over R is not related to gore or realistic violence (if it can be included without slowing performance more power to ya).  What I'm really asking about is from the nudity/suggestive material side.  I'm not a prude, I have no issue with seeing it, but rather than an R rating discouraging teens from playing a game, I think it draws them to it.  I would much rather have a mature (from a mental consideration, not necessarily actual age) community that is playing the game for the co-operative, strategy and competition aspects, than the opportunity to play a character that is titillating do to some appearance inherent to the character.  I think most MMO games have gone overboard in this respect and truly hope that along with being different in so many other ways, CSE will buck that trend as well.

    the game doesn't need blood spewing from people each time they get hit or women running around in lace tops with nipples showing through. PG is fine, gameplay > all. also being an online game I'm not sure it gets a rating.

    I totally want a G-Rated Camelot Unchained.  When my bolt of thunder strikes an enemy dead, I want his body to explode into swarm of beautiful bunnies and colorful frogs.  When a trebuchet fires upon a structure, it's a rainbow of wonder that obliterates the walls.  Instead of slaying the keep lord, we run in and spam /hug.

    Lol... Sadly any rating they 'want' it to be can not be.  Because its online and interacting with others it does not get assigned a 'static' rating like other games or tv shows.  You cant rate 'real life' experences. :-)

     

    And hi!

    Exactly my thoughts. I liked how DAOC handled both aspects. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    PG-13 or R. I'd be perfectly fine with a more gritty "M for Mature" rating.

    I kinda like the mature theme myself.

    Should it be forced on people? no.

     

    But if two people want to roleplay a relationship inside a game, 2 consenting adults, in their own in game home, and want their characters to be naked, I wouldn't be opposed to that. Adult animations? Fine with me.

    In my oppinion, being able to roleplay relationships, enhances the roleplay experience. Lots of people roleplay as girlfriend/boyfriend and or husband/wife.

     

    Will it happen in this game? I'm sure it won't. Should it happen in this game? Sure, why not?

    It would completely elimate the teenage crowd from the game, given that to access content like that they would have to be verified adults. I guess some parents are dumb enough to allow their kids to play games like that, but hey, thats not our fault.

     

    Just my 2 copper.

    Let's rate it "E" for everyone and then fill it with blood, guts, and beheadings.

    Ok, Ok, just "E" for everyone, and instead of dying, you just get "Bonked" on the head and get taken back to the spawn point by the ambulance.

    That would be taking erotic roleplay to an entire new level.  I would never support a game developer that actually wanted to include something like this in their game.  I lol'd really hard in my head when I read that it would eliminate the teenage crowd, as they usually play off their parent's credit card anyway.

    Credit card yes, though they would have to verify their age, vie social security number or drivers liscense number.

     

    I know a game that alredy does that. And yeah I know, its not going to happen in this game, but in reality I wouldn't see the problem with it myself.

    I am willing to bet it will be rated "T for Teen" in North America and "PEGI 12" in Europe, with the usual disclaimer that "online interactions are not rated," or however that is phrased.

    However, those ratings mean alcohol and tobacco would be out, which is a real shame. I am not a smoker and not much of a drinker, but I like seeing those options in my fantasy games. Who doesn't like some good dwarven ale? Unfortunately, alcohol and tobacco references in video games often bump them up a tier these days, so they are usually cut out.

    Anyway, we will see.

    I don't care, but I want to see some blood. Tasteful blood use naturally.

    Personally, I want to smoke, drink, gamble, and shag. But when I log on I just wanna craft  :P

    I don't know, if this were in DAoC, I can think of some nightmare scenarios involving trolls and lurikeens that probably even adults shouldnt have to see.

    Mature.  I'd hate to see them water down anything to achieve a more kid friendly rating.

    Mature with lots of blood, guts, gore, and boobies.

    And hi!

    Hey Arch, great to see you here!

    I completely forgot about the "Unrated due to on-line interactions" thing.  None-the-less, one of the big reasons I never played AoC was that I had kids in my house and I knew I wouldn't be able to play the game while they were awake.

    Doesn't matter to me, though I lean towards mature.

    I hadn't thought about the controlled substance impact.  That would be a shame if we couldn't get together at an inn (that someone paid $5,000 to get) and could only toast with rootbeer!

    I can just see the internal testing this comment will generate next April 1.
