The lights are on
Last year, when watching the E3 2012 press conferences, for almost every game that could have a T rating, I crossed my fingers and prayed that it would be T. Ironicly, i think that some games aren't always given an M for blood/gore/intense violence, i think sometimes, they're rated M for something that the developers could have had an even easier time avoiding, language. I was watching a Watchdogs preview, and when Aiden Pierce went into a club, there was this guy saying F@#@ left and right. They could have easily NOT had that in and voilá, you have a T suitible game
And it's getting old really quick. I can handle swearing, but I hate it when a game has a character cursing for no reason. Saint Row is a example of the kind of game I cannot force my self to play because of how annoying it gets. Skyrim and Oblivion, great games, minimal swearing. Heck, Red Dead Redemption had less swearing than most movies, it was a wonderful game. Games that have a character cussing all the time is just annoying and immature.
Is this a problem because you are too young to play "M" rated games? I too had to deal with that when I was younger, so I can certainly understand why you are frustrated. Might I suggest purchasing a Ninetendo console if you already haven't? Nintendo has plenty of games rated "T" or under and could easily satisfy your desire to play games in the meantime.
As for your Watch Dogs example, I don't think the reason why it is rated "M" is because of fowl (a pun in response to your avatar) language. Watch Dogs appears to contain violence not suited for all audiences. It might also touch on mature topics, potentially terrorism, which ESRB would not approve a "T" rating for.
I doubt it is language. Mainly I think it is the severity of the violence and the amount of damage/blood/gore that is produced. I mean, yeah, Mortal Combat has you smashing skulls and ripping out spines, and Halo is just shooting aliens and other spartians with a little blood, but they both manage to get M ratings. It's up to the discrecion of the ESRB, but some developers should avoid using too much violence and gore, but I guess whatever sells, and tells the story.
I like video games.
I used to be in the same situation as you, just chill out and play as many games as you can right now. You'll be seventeen before you know it.
Me thinks you just don't like curse words that much. Games like Saints Row use language because it's what their characters would do. Yeah, the game play is ridiculous (and fun) but the way their characters speak is pretty spot on. I work at a fast food place with drug dealers and gang bangers holding down a day job...it's mind numbingly stupid and the salty language is pretty much every word. Different things get different check marks on the ESRB list. I don't think Watch Dogs is just for language...its for violence, terrorism, gore, language, and probably sexual references, drug references, and partial nudity. If you don't like curse words, then maybe playing games related to criminals and their wrong doings is not for you.
Long live play.
