Why is the ESRB rating system not respected?

So,the recent shooting is being blamed on Mass Effect. While this is obviosuly bullshit, it's not the first time video games have been blamed for violence. Someone I know who works at a GameStop was badgered, along with his co-workers, by belligerent protested mothers claiming them to be merchants of death.

So, I think we can all agree that the reason so many children get their mitts of violent video games is because their parents buy them for their kids. These same parents would probably cringe in disgust if you let their child watch an R rated movie. the M rating is simply not respected.

Also, have you noticed the stuff in even PG-13 movies now? You used to never here the F word in a PG-13 movie. Now it's ok to say it a couple times and still be PG-13. PG-13 movies are also much more violent now. Still, videogames take the blame.

Mothers are always looking to video games as a scapegoat for these kinds of tragedies, that's nothing new. What they fail to blame is their neglect at their children's activities for either buying the game or not knowing it was in the kids' possession.

As for movies, PG-13 movies are allowed 1 F-word and then I believe once it goes past that, it becomes R. I believe that's how it's always been, just not every movie chooses to use it. I actually think allow even less bad stuff in them than they used to. Wasn't 16 Candles from the 80's PG or PG-13? Movie had a breast shot from a shower scene that was on screen for a considerable time.

I personally never heard anyone say f**k in a PG-13 movie until the early 2000's.

License to Drive starring the Coreys is one off the top of my head from the 80's ("You musn't **** with the Department of Motor Vehicles, Mr. Anderson") Plus there was Kramer vs. Kramer from '79 with Dustin Hoffman where a woman had full frontal and it was PG. Although I would agree there is more violence in them now it seems. Times change. Society in general has less inhibition when it comes to showing sexuality and violence in media, no one wants to look at something corny and campy anymore. In terms of its effect on children, it honestly depends on the individual child. That's not to say a parent should take their kid to see something like say...Watchmen (even though many did just because it was a movie about superheroes even though it was rated R). It comes down to parenting and parents knowing what media their children are viewing.

The fact that parents are blaming video games for a shooting is just stupid and impractical. Do you think that CoD would be blamed for such a gruesome event? No, because there are too many parents that buy the game for their kids and don't give a damn about what's in them.

I think AlphaOmegaSin summed it up nicely


Also as far as violence in movies are concerned, I think PG-13 are still pretty tame compared to the 80s and such where they would pass off melting Nazis as PG

Yes. The fact that Mass Effect is being blamed shows that parents have a general idea of what games their passing off to their kids, but instead of doing the right thing and not buying those kinds of games, they blame the actual game content which is not designed for those children.

It's all sensationalism. A guy goes on a shooting spree and somehow it was media like violent movies and violent video games that pulled the trigger, not the nutcase with the gun.

Yes, because there was no such thing as serial killers long before computers and video games were invented.

Ugh.

Wasn't that Lanza guy autistic or something? I think they just announced he had had some mental disorder.
