I'm pretty sure that they needed the game to be rated by the ESRB to get onto shelves in the shops.

Out of curiosity - how many of those who are screaming "OMGZ! CENS0RSHIP!!!!elventyone" actually LOOKED at the linked picture?
Don't just go "I know the quafe girl, so I don't have to look at the picture."
Look at it. Then tell me why you think this is suitable for eve or any game not specifically designed with adult content.

Suggestive poses and text which leaves a lot to the imagination is fine - but this doesn't leave much to the imagination.


This. Although I disagree, I see no problem with adult content in EVE. The average player is 25 or older I believe. Even if seedy bars were implemented with Ambulation, you could still choose to not go into them.

I disagree since everytime you sign on the ESRB says content online differs. It's kind of a big joke really, since theres no Single player content to rate!

ESRB ratings have always been off for MMOs since theres no way to fully regulate the behavoir of humans who have privacy and the freedom to say and do things they normally would not.

While the post that caused this red scare was bogus, and an excellent troll I might add, the issue of Censorship is null here. So stop getting scared people. CCP has shown no signs of making this a kiddy game. Yet.

Dunno if it has been posted before, but this guy thinks EVEs online experience is not good for kids.

To sum it up:

- people in EVE talk about sex and drugs all the time
- CCP are perverts
- SA has manager positions in CCP

Actually, the 14-18 age bracket (at least in the US) is one of the most lucrative for any kind of gamin because they have the largest percentage of disposable income - that is, all of it. They don't pay bills, they don't have mortgages, and they don't (hopefully) have kids to feed and clothe. So they're free to spend their money on whatever strikes their fancy, be it EVE, WoW, or iTunes downloads. My 14 year old routinely spends his allowance/birthday/holiday money on cellphone cards and iTunes downloads cards.


There's REALLY people in US that actually CHECK that kind of stuff before purchasing a game? O.o We have PEGI ratings in EU, but no one I ever heard of would decide if a game is worth its money by age ratings... kids that want to play GTA4 will buy GTA4 regardless of what's written on the box...

And BTW... Eve is totally NOT a teen-friendly environment... the best way to have parents associations beating the crap out of CCP on the media is having low age requirements (other way kids will buy the game regardless if they want to, and parents won't be able to complain)...

QFT. Your average 15 year old will neither have the maturity nor intelligence to cope with the game, and will more than likely end up just spreading rumours about how terrible EVE is after he loses his first ship to pirates. The solution isn't to make EVE safer or change the game in any way, but it is simply to accept that EVE's target audience is primarily the 18+ bracket. If the game is marketed as having adult content, then the people who buy it will be prepared for a cold harsh world with occasional 'nudity' (BTW, skin =/= nudity) rather than expecting another WOW-clone with more grind than skill.
