I kind of like PEGI system more. No idea why ESRB has a 17+ rating and an 18+ rating. Seem awfully close together as if 1 year makes that much of a difference in person's mentality.

In fact my own opinion about ESRB has steadily lessened. As a children's writer, I think kids can distinguish fact from fantasy more than we give them credit for.

All systems are flawed actually. When I saw Capitalism 2 rated PEGI 3+, I wonder if a 3 years old kid would really enjoy this game...

Its just a blood and violence rating, not whether a 3-year-old would be able to understand the text or not.

I consider all rating systems to be a joke, they're unreliable feel good programs at best to give parents an excuse not to be parents. The only way to know what your kids are being exposed to is to expose yourself to it, whether that means spending a weekend reading about reckless sparkly vampires and werewolves that fall in love with newborn infants or sitting down with your kids and watching movies about materialistic ghosts and monsters to see for yourself what 'lessons' your c...

...child is picking up from our current culture it's a parent's job to be there to provide context and insight and to actually EXPLAIN why these things are wrong instead of just going by a letter that doesn't even do it's job in the first place. If you want your kids to grow up with the right values then that's on you, not a monetizing culture gone wild that thinks letters for violence and bloodshed solve all problems. Kids are smarter than most adults in my generation wan...
