I honestly believe ratings have their place. Not all parents can know about every game coming out and what all is going on it. Ratings give a semi-accurate understanding of the content. Game ratings also are given in a very different manner than movie ratings. Movie ratings are bullshit and the process is veiled in secrecy and lies. I suggest watching This Film is Not Yet Rated to understand the bullshit behind it all.
I'll have to look that film up: I've never seen it. Sounds very interesting.
Actually, as a bit of an amatuer game developer myself, here's a few question for those of you who are gamers: what sort of content do you like to see? Do the games at the top of the Tim list take it too far? Is one type of content (eg. violence) more acceptable than another (eg. sexual themes)? How far should the developers take it?
