At the end of the day the ratings don't create a force field around the game that stops people with intentions of giving it to minors from picking it up. The government needs to belt up and try and invest in ways to have kids with educated parents. No offense but around here with the teenage pregnancies and stuff, the kids don't end up with full guidance, they're obviously going to get in the wrong frame of mind or wrong friends and eventually get involved with crime and stuff. Games don't have any effect in this, and even if they do, it's only the already warped they're influencing.
Our government should really try and reach out to these problems, and not give themselves a payrise whilst no-one else gets one, just so they can afford their second house abroad, and be able to go on fucking holiday every month.
