I've heard of rating creep, but this is ridiculous!

The video says the ESRB is "... taken very seriously." When I was working retail as a teenager I treated it as seriously as parental advisory warning stickers on CDs and NC-17 ratings on movies. If your parents dropped your 12 year old ass at the mall on your own with 20 bucks, I'm selling you a copy of 2 Live Crew's Nasty As I Wanna Be no questions asked.

People like you are why I was able to get the tapes and CDs that my parents didn't know about when I was a kid... thanks!

It's actually quite a good RPG.

But yeah, when genocide enters the fray it's probably an M game.

Erm... the action elements are okay, sure, but it's just so lazily implemented as far as everything else.  All the factions' towns share the same architecture (eg: Islamic-themed culture w/ the game's standard Brit architecture) and the natives' villages suffer from the same lazy design, the characters' accents are wacky, the "bad guy" pivots from your bestest bud to pure ebil in the blink of an eye w/ no foreshadowing or lampshading, its armor/weapons suffer from the Borderlands effect (Islamic pants and native shirt w/ a colonial hat?  Sure, why not?), crafting and inventory menus are haphazard and very non-intuitive, crafting itself isn't very useful except for sticking non-transferrable stat-boosting badges to non-hat armors (Why non-hat?  Because!), etc, etc, etc.

I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not hot garbage, but "quite good" is stretching it. :P

One thing I learned from the video is that the ESRB retired the EC rating. I'm surprised with this since though the "E for Everyone" on paper should cover this, there is an arguable large range between some action/adventure games aimed at young kids and titles aimed at preschoolers.

If any rating should be retired, it is the AO rating. No games have had that rating for years, and any game which may qualify for it are sold on Steam where unlike brick and mortar stores, does not require games to have an ESRB rating before being sold. The only reason why it may serve a purpose is if a game from a mainstream publisher or large indie puts forward a game which the ESRB feels is too much, they can threaten it with an AO rating unless they tone down the content.

Agreed that the combat is absurdly easy.

But, the chain of moral choices has direct impact on the ending.

And since you have an actual title, and aren't the simple nameless hero, you get to make the decisions.

For Constantin's change from sick to evil? Depends on how much you paid attention to his blather. He was always a twit.

Despite their claims, most of these kids' parents haven't finished Genesis, much less the really fun bits in the historic texts.

/Nailing a tyrant's head to the floor with a tent stake is always fun.
