            PEGI is not identical to the ESRB is, they don't use the same criteria. (Typically, PEGI is more sensitive to violence, and the Mr. Scratch stuff pushed up to 18.)

              PEGI are more sensitive all together, BBFC (The other ratings board that is used in the UK) gave Mass Effect 1 a 12 while PEGI gave it 18 for a certain scene in the game.

                In a way, I do like PEGI more. Although the law is a little silly with PEGI. Did you guys know that you can actually buy an 18 PEGI game at 12? It's not a BBFC rated game, so theres no law in it.

                But then I dont get the BBFC too. Its BBFC... the F stands for Films :/

                  I like BBFC better because their ratings seem fairer, another thing to point out is that no digital distribution game needs an age rating hence why most games on services like Steam don't have one.
                  The Law was going to change so that the PEGI ratings were legal and BBFC was no longer involved in games but that has yet to happen for some reason. Currently if a game gets rated 12 or higher by PEGI then the game gets sent to BBFC to be rated which is also why these ratings are more seen on cases (possibly).

                    Honestly, everything in this game would have cleared U.S. tv at this point - interesting how PEGI is more sensitive to violence in their ratings.

                    Its the classic: sex no problem, violence = no way
                    Looking forward to more Alan Wake

                      Wasn't it always the other way round?

                      Don't educate kids about sex, show them violent cartoons!

                          This is what got Mortal Kombat banned in Australia.

                          Well not PEGI, it was their rating system, but it doesn't go past 15. So if a game is not okay for 15 year olds to play, it can't be sold in Australia.

                          Australia got and has been getting a lot of hate for this kind of thing, so they said they would be fixing it in the next few years, so other rating systems have been looking into adjusting to something a little more like the ESRB as well.

                          Thought it was semi relevant in this thread, and we've been discussing this for months on the Mortal Kombat Online forums, so I thought I would just leave this here

                            Well, the strangling, stomping and slashing people to death has more to do with it, really -- it's not super graphic, but Mr. Scratch does get up to nasty things.

                              People say sh** a few times, one darkness-touched-lady tries to seduce Wake (again, with just talk). As Mikki said, it's more what Mr. Scratch does, though it all happens on those T.V.'s Alan finds, so the strangling etc. is never up-close, or even totally on screen.
