The Elder Scrolls Online and Thief Each Rated "M"

The Bethesda Softworks Facebook page has word that the ESRB has advised them that The Elder Scrolls Online is getting an "M" rating, designating it for mature audiences only. They say they disagree with the rating, but do not plan on challenging it because they "are unwilling to change the game’s content to achieve a different rating." They note they are in the process of updating the game's marketing materials to reflect this rating. In the meantime, there's this video where three of the game's developers discuss group content in a clip which runs almost eight minutes. The clip does not end with an age-rating, perhaps the last time the game will go commando. Similarly, the ESRB listing for the Thief reboot also shows that game with an "M" rating (thanks Lazygamer). The description suggests violence plays a part in the rating, though, similar to many rock stars, it was the sex and drugs that did the game in:
During the course of the game, players can roam through a brothel environment in which several prostitutes are depicted topless. The central character has the ability to spy on couples engaging in sexual activity (topless characters); suggestive moaning and dialogue can also be heard. Some settings depict opium vats or characters under the influence of the drug. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” can be heard in the dialogue.

Ugh....I love the Elder Scrolls but this just looks....awful...

It won't matter how good or bad it is, the servers will be shut within a year. I think the day of massive subs to any game are over.

I disagree, they will just go full sub to recoup costs faster then switch to F2P.

I do agree with InBlack though, the beta was boring.

These MMO's have become so cookie-cutter (read: boring garbage) when I see it's an MMO I don't give it a second thought. The main problem seems to be if they make the game the way they want, as in tough and requiring a brain to play instead of being a button smasher, nobody will play it. People want mindless shit to play that requires little to no attention span to get into.

Well at least there is enough of us out there to keep Anarchy Online going. If you don't have at least a bachelors degree in nerdology.. don't even try it.

Just did my yearly reactivation of a couple accounts and yeah still awesome. Surprised at the number of people on also. Looks like they are following through with the new engine finally as it is actually getting close to completion. they are also one patch away from releasing a huge new noob starting area with something like 100 new missions.
