There are/have been, but you won't ever see them on a console. Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft take it upon themselves not to publish games with that rating on their systems.

AWESOME


The axis of entertainment (Nin. SONY, MS) has agreed to not let games of that rating be released for their systems. Its basically a death note for a game to get that rating.


Are you serious... that is one of the stupidest things i have ever heard...

Rated A movies and music can be released but not videogames!?!?

ARE YOU SERIOUS?!

Yes, im serious...although music is limited to language..so, thats not really relevant. But I see your point. And movies and music and games have 3 different rating systems and panels all together.

What do you mean music is limited to language...

But they make really gruesome movies and rated X movies if you know what i mean but not videogames... They censor videogames way too much. Take Manhunt 2 for example.

Obviously im against it. I think it ranks pretty much synonymous with freedom of speech, and it doesnt offend people because they are free purchase it or not. But I came accross this article, which I dont think I need to post, it was relatively short. It was about the new Fire emblem DLC being censored for western markets. Now, its common knowledge that europe is much less prudish than America. We get offended by naughty parts, while the european releases of games frequently come under fire for violence, its essentially flip-flopped culturally. 

 

so, heres the image, what do you guys think?

Well, like I said, "they" there really is no "they" because the movie and music industry has their own ratings, and so do games. The same people arent even involved.
