(re: Software Ratings)
this is an interesting piece of history!
the ratings didn’t affect me much because the system wasn’t in place until i was a teenager… i might feel differently if they’d kept me from playing games i wanted to play. i vaguely remember a store clerk at Egghead trying to keep me from buying a game with a mature rating — my dad was along, but i don’t remember if he made me put the game back or if he let me buy it. don’t even remember what game it was… i guess i wasn’t too upset about it!
