Skyrim Officially Gets ‘M’ Rating


Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim gets an ‘M’ for Mature rating from the ESRB in the US, indicating the game features “blood and gore, intense violence, sexual themes and use of alcohol.” Alright!!

Here’s the official word from the listing:

“This is a fantasy role-playing game in which players assume the role of
Dovakin, a prophesied figure with the power to combat dragons in the fictional
world of Skyrim.”

“As players traverse through mountainous open-world environments, they complete
missions and quests that impact the eventual fate of their character. Players
use swords, bows and arrows, axes, and magic attacks (e.g., fireballs, ice
shards) to kill various enemies (e.g., wolves, dragons, human bandits and
soldiers).”

“As players engage in melee-style combat, some sequences are highlighted
by slow-motion effects, particularly for decapitations. Large blood-splatter
effects also occur during combat, and some environments are stained with blood
or body parts (e.g., heads impaled on spikes).”

What? No mention of cock-slapping marital bondage?
