The lesson to be learned from this is that a censorship and certification system must reflect reality, or it risks becoming meaningless. I am an adult gamer (32 years old) and I have played many MA rated games that I think should definitely have been rated R there is no way a twelve year old should be allowed to play Quake 4, Kingpin, or the Grand Theft Auto series.
