last of us esrb rating

I see the rating says 17+. My nephew is 14 and we both liked all the Uncharteds and Arkham. Is Last of Us unsuitable if they were ok?

This is probably inappropriate. Lots of cursing and violence... and some stuff that's controversial.

I'd say no, there is a lot of bad langauge (ie lots of use of the F-word), Lots of gore (limbs blowing off, smashing faces in, bleeding out, ect, as well as an extremely dark and sad story line.

I'd say no in my opinion, however I'm unaware as to the level of maturity he is at.  It's your call.
