    I'm 15, and I got Early bird tickets for my birthday. I'm just wondering if I'll only be able to see/play the games rated 15 and below? I'll obviously have a parent with me at the time.

    Another question is, could you give an insight of what games will be at the expo?

    Thanks for reading!

    You won't be able to play 18-rated games I'm afraid.

    What about 16 rated games?
  • Deleted user 14 July 2013 11:46:56
    Ok let me rephrase that. You won't be able to play any games rated older than your age.

    I was actually impressed with how strict they are at the expo. A lot of people (*cough* parents *cough*) still see age ratings as not really being a big deal, so to see them enforced at an expo, where developers want as many people as possible to see and play their games is great.

    Now if only more devs would grow up a bit and realise that swearing is neither cool nor particularly 'realistic', there would be less need for high ratings. Same for gratuitous violence.

    I agree with jonsaan. I was making exactly that point earlier today in another thread vis a vis Mass Effect 2 and, in particular, Jack.

    So there.

    The way it works is that there's a walled-off area where the 18 rated games are displayed. You have to present ID to get in.

    I totally called it.

    Not really. Whilst there is the odd exception, it's rare that supposedly 'adult' content brings anything to the core gameplay experience. My opinion of course.

    See also, the entire history of: film, literature and art

    It's nothing to do with "devs growing up".

    I was talking about swearing and graphic content layered onto a game that doesn't need it.

    Of course there are very well made exceptions, but quite often a game could work just as well without all that stuff and it brings absolutely nothing to the core experience bar an age rating.
