I lol'd. But really, most games are violent enough, so I'd like to see what this "really, really violent" stuff is.

Fun stuff. But to my understanding, the ESRB does not nicessarily play a games before rating it.

I heard they just get details of the game (and the kind of stuff in it).

They don't. The devs. show them the worst scenes and they assign a rating based on that.

Awesome example. :D I possibly couldn't add to what's already been said on this matter. i know every person varies, but I, and I'm sure I'm not alone here on SW, have absolutely no desire to go out, drag a person from a car, curb stomp them, before driving away after playing a session of GTA4. There should definitely be a limit to the violence, and obviously if it's in bad taste, ie, racist, sexist, ect, then ofcourse it should be censored, but Left 4 Dead, really? The uninformed need to realize that videogames are not all aimed at 8 yearold kids.
