This month’s IGDA Culture Clash article calls for a reform of the ESRB rating system. Amongst Sakey’s reccommendations are:
- Don’t hold publishers responsible for the actions of modders
- Don’t re-rate games so quickly
- Content descriptors should be more prominent than the ratings
- Don’t separate sex and violence
- Enforce the ratings
- Enforce policy wisely
In other words, “demonstrate that the industry can police itself”.
