(re: re: Software Ratings)
I agree – the slider bars would have been better. Or, a simple list of what is in the game. This would give more information than “just a rating” and might be a little trickier for the retailers to ban software based on.
I think I chose the ratings system that we used because at that time I was trying to send a message to the world that computer games deserved to be taken seriously as an entertainment medium. I always wanted to do everything I could to “link” Sierra, and the computer game industry, to Hollywood. Copying their ratings system I thought was a move in that direction.
