...And here I was thinking they had lightened up over this whole "videogame violence" fiasco.

Oblivion goes from "Teen" to "Mature"

I admit, it was pretty rough for a "T" game. Honestly though, I don't believe that Oblivion is bad enough to be "M". Maybe the "T" version will go for more money on eBay.

Also, taking the rating up over mods is idiotic.

Nothing stopping anyone creating a 'naked' mod for any game with characters in... does that automatically make any game X rated?

Online games come with a warning - rating may change during online play or something like that maybe something similar for moddable games?

A game should be rated on its content only - optional mods are just that, optionally added to the game by the user/8 yr old johnny on his dads computer

I know that games warn that experience may change with online play, I think that has to do with the possibility (or certainty) that there is going to be foul language flung around.

As far as warning about content changing with mods, I don't think that there are warnings like that. That doesn't change the fact that the game is rated for the content that it is originally shipped with, and not the possibility of what it could have.

Are the producion companies really responsible for the content that is added by user created mods? This is just going back to the GTA: SA thing last year.

I couldn't agree more. I think the only mods that get rated are ones released over digital purchase. Its rated 13+ here I highly doubt that will change because of this.

The thing with Oblivion and GTA:SA is that the "Adult Content" was already in the game.

With Oblivion all you had to do is remove the underwear texture and the models then became detailed nudes.

The hot coffee "mod" was already in the game and just needed to be unlocked.

I understand that the content was present in the coding, but in order to unlock it, you would need either an action replay or mod to unlock it. This means that steps would need to be taken to unlock said content that could be avoided by PARENTS keeping an eye on what their children are up to (which if there was any, the kid wouldn't have the game to begin with).

It's like with semi-automatic weapons (rifles specifically). I have heard that, in some cases, they can be modified to fire full-auto (I don't know how). If this is true, does this mean that guns shouldn't be sold because someone may make one fully automatic (which is illegal)?

Just because semi-automatic weapons have the capacity to be automatic (it's illegal to modify your guns by the way), does not mean it should be illegal. Same thing for games, in Oblivion you had to do something illegal (mod it) to be able to get the adult material out of it, unlike in San Andreas. The creators of the whole game made that available themselves, you didn't have to go into one of the game's files, change a one to a zero, then play the game and have it work.

Parents need to be more responsible, bottom line.

The people in the rating systems and certian politicians *Cough*Hilary Clinton *Cough* are getting all fussed about the people who made the game, where the parents were dumb enough to give their 10 year olds M rated games.
