Rated “T” For Teen

It seems that Connecticut’s attorney general isn’t happy that a video game called “Frat Party Games: Beer Pong” was rated suitable for children as young as 13.

“Beer Pong” is a downloadable game for the world’s newest cult gaming platform the Nintendo Wii.

This is one of the few “alcohol” related complaints I actually agree with, although I do feel ratings on video games are futile at best. I know that when I was a child video game ratings were never paid attention to by my parents. If they didn’t want me playing a game, as in Mortal Kombat (I think this was the only game they didn’t want me playing), they just wouldn’t let me have it. The rating had absolutely nothing to do for it.

The onus of responsibility when it comes to these things SHOULD lie with the parents rather than the video game developers, although I cannot fathom how a game entitled “Beer Pong” can be rated “T” for Teen when the drinking age is 21, seems like pure stupidity! Clearly whoever rated this game lacks some serious common sense.

Hopefully they re-rate and re-release this game though – I’d sure like to play!
