Did you know the X rating wasn't supposed to be used for porn at all originally? The first few movies that had an X rating were intense car-crash movies and things like that, it was just adopted to only be applied to the naked ones. But should the original concept come back?

Doing that would basically be overkill at this point. They have the "R" rating for movies and they have "M" and "AO" ratings for games.

There is actually NC-17 rating for movies, it's higher than R. It replaced X because X started to be viewed as porn. NC-17 is not necissarily porn. It's barely used because movies try to be just under NC-17 to avoid decreased box office revenue. "Showgirls" is one. "Requiem for a dream" was actually rated NC-17, but decided to go unrated instead.

Back on the video game subject. Ao is pretty much like X. If a game has intense hardcore nudity, gore and constant heavy swearing in a dark mature context... it'll be Ao. No need for X.

No, because then the kids would not be able to buy most R rated movies when they turn 18, instead they would have to wait another 3 years to see great movies, involving the action, extreme comedies and disaster movies.

Ratings just rate what content is involved in the game / movie. That does not mean it will stop people from buying it.

The problem with giving gory, violent movies with an X rating is pointless because that is exactly what R movies are. I think X should be used to describe just porn movies and that is it or you might as well just stick to one rating and call it R.

I don't think they should. Theres really not a high demand for it for one, it's really not needed, and it'll just take away from the gaming industry, and what it's about. If you want X-Rated material go watch porn or play a computer game on the net tht offers it. bringing it to consoles is just a poor idea in my mind.

PS- I think this thread is a dupe, I remember posting to a thread like this before.

Man, I don't want to get in trouble again. What thread was there before? Or better yet, am I able to simply ask for this thread to be closed before anything happens? Would that be better than having it closed by force?

I wish to request that one of the members of the board close this thread under suspicion of copied material and impression of spam...

P.S. I think I spelled suspicion wrong (twice now Lol)
