What rating is the game going to get

Postby dance1211 » Sun May 03, 2015 7:42 pm

We the Pegi rating system which says how mature the contents of a game. Obviously this game isn't going to get an 18 or mature rating but what is the consensus? Should this game aim for a 3 (U) or higher? Given that the game is influenced by the BK games and everyone who played those are much more mature, I would expect this game to get a 7 or 12 because that's what happens when you have cartoon violence in a game. With the team also, I wouldn't be suprised if they throw a few "hell" s into the dialog.

Anyway, what rating should the game have/aim for?

Can't speak for PEGI, but ESRB rating is likely to be "E for Everyone", I'm pretty sure Playtonic are going to be aiming not only for those of us who grew up with the N64 Banjo games but also our kids (should we have any, many of us would be of an age where such is likely).

There will probably be some jokes/innuendo that flies right over the heads of kids that we adults will get a chuckle from, but nothing that would warrant a higher rating.

Expecting T. Any amount of crude humor is T in these Puritan times.
Make the forum great again.

I'm personally thinking E-10 via the ESRB. Cartoon violence and possible crude humor place it there for me.

Actually, does E-10 still exist? I haven't looked at ESRB's in a while now...

I really hope it's nothing over E10 because there really isn't a need for that far.(this isn't Conker after all!) In fact I find it funnier when they have hidden joked in kids have because they have to be sneakier and they have that surprise factor!

Very likely E, but E10+ is possible, it's likely what the Banjo games would have gotten today with a modern release.

It'll be conker's bad fur day all over again.
Early development: quirky cute little game. And when you get your parents to buy the final game for you, your innocent childhood gets a sick roundhouse kick in the face. Thanks Rare! :lol:
sooo.. 16+
