The Examiner managed to dig up this rating information from the ESRB listing the various things that the player would expect to see in the game. Considering that the ESRB always take on the stance of a prude by proxy, it is always amusing to see the unmistakable nuance of dry humor they pour into every piece of these unintentional comedy gems. So let me get my game face on and join them!
Nooo, reaaaaally? A game that depicts violence as a solution to most problems is going to have foul language and alcoholic references as well? Why, we didn’t expect that at all! Good show, ESRB! Way to catch those filthy, filthy game developers trying to poison our children’s minds and distract them from their Bible Studies! I believe this calls for a celebration! Mary, do be a dear and break out the non-alcoholic cider!
In fairness, the document did cite some parts that might be a tad difficult for people to swallow, such as the trafficking and selling of women to the highest bidders. But hey, that’s why the “M” rating is there: to keep the immature people out. ZING!
