Hatred Earns AO Rating

Controversial isometric shooter Hatred is being rated AO (Adults Only) in the U.S. reports Polygon, saying they have confirmed this with the ESRB. AO ratings are very unusual, and this case seems even more so, as the rating was apparently prompted by the game's language and violence, while the AO rating is typically triggered by sexual content. "Well, I'm not quite convinced why Hatred got AO rating while it lacks any sexual content, but it's still some kind of achievement to have the second game in history getting AO rating for violence and harsh language only. Even if this violence isn't really that bad and this harsh language isn't overused," writes one of the developers on their registration-required forums. "I would prefer to get a standard M+ rating, because with AO we will have problems to to get to consoles in the future, but on the other hand I think you guys (our fans) would be disappointed with it."

These devs are real pieces of shit. I hope this comes back to bite them in the ass in every way, shape, and form possible.

I wonder what the Australian-equivalent to an American AO rating would be if such a thing were to exist.

I love how, in the US, having sex is the ultimate evil whereas slaughtering children only shows maturity.

Heh, came to say the same thing.

Pixelated sex = adults only!
Pixelated murder = kids okay!
