PostSubject: FFXIV ~ ESRB Rating "T"– for Teen –   Mon Jul 26, 2010 4:25 am

Like anyone really cares about a Teen rating, or what the ESRB has to say most times. However they have a new description block to better describe what each game contains, that was added last year I believe, and its quite humorous; to say the least...


ESRB wrote:
Titles rated T (Teen) have content that may be suitable for ages 13 and older. Titles in this category may contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood, simulated gambling, and/or infrequent use of strong language.

ESRB wrote:
This is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) in which players navigate a large cast of characters that engage in missions and fight the forces of evil. Players explore environments (e.g., cities, plains, caves) and battle human and fantasy creatures. Players use swords, spears, axes, firearms, and magic spells (e.g., fire balls, energy beams) to defeat enemies in real-time combat. Cutscenes depict a man being stabbed from behind, and creatures emitting splashes of purple or yellow blood when struck. Some female characters are depicted from low camera angles, with lingering camera views of their buttocks (i.e., up-skirt shots). Dialogue contains suggestive references; for example, “The netmaster’s probably up in his office polishing the mast just thinking about her,” “stick yer manhood in the forge,” and “You cheating little whore!” Several characters are referred to as drunk or drunken, while others sometimes talk about wine, rum, and grog. The word “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.

Typical and expected of anything coming from Japan...rofl

Hurray for lingerie covered buttocks. Many a teen is likely to polish his mast to images of his Miqo'te I suspect.

Yeah, I imagine the little Japanese boys won't be the only ones doing that. I don't really see the need for a larger panel explaining the elements of the rating system to parents. Most parents aren't even aware that there is a rating system, they don't look at it now, and they certainly won't look at a massive wall of text. Anyone likely to read it would already know what it meant.

I guess it could absolve them in some legal sense though.



'I think therefore I am'? No, it would be more accurate to say, 'You think, therefore we are.'

I'm no expert on Japanese culture, but I'm fairly sure the average 13 year old has seen his share of tentacle rape videos.

I don't think seeing a pair of bloomers on a cat girl is going to mentally scar those kids.

They will if your parents are of the wacky religious the US is chock full of, that think everything is bad...

Heck for the longest time, the internet was banned in my home, so I had to sneak it and hide it from my mother. Finally after a few years she learned how great it was and doesn't mind it anymore...hehe

Oh boy... Having parents who were completely uninterested in computers and totally clueless was a Godsend for me when I was 11 or so. I tell ya my 14.4k was constantly beeping and booping to fill my image folders. lol

Oh the days where it took 5 minutes to see a girl's face downloaded before your eyes... I don't miss them.

Naw, they've seen far worse. No need to worry about them, I think most would agree. the only place people are worried about that would be the US, and most of these kids have seen worse too. They've grown up with internet porn readily available, they've probably seen much more than their parents ever have. But that's what you get from prudish Americans.



Premature burial works just fine as a cure for adolescence.

Growing up my parents use to hover over my shoulders and say "Oo her name is cute talk to her." or "Quick quick ask her to become your girlfriend.. aw that's so cute." Yea my parents were internet pimps. Good old yahoo chat.

"There are some things that can beat smartness and foresight? Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot."  -Mark Twain
