Yes the Americans seem to draw quite a distinction between AO and M in games and R and NC-17. Its similar to the difference between the old 15 and new 15PG certs in this country. The US rating system for games is abit ridiclous, 1 year isnt going to reduce any potential damage a game would do to a teenager…

Looking at the film industry over there however, directors are always scared witless of a NC-17 cert and regard it as “commerically devestating” and will often make significant cuts to their films to obtain an R rating…how strange. I assume its only the stigma attached to the NC-17 rating rather than alienating all those 17 year olds who want to see the movie. :D
