Rockstar: The House AO Built

It's been a long time coming. Envelopes have been pushed and boundaries have been challenged. Technology has given us the ability not only to depict levels of violence that were unimaginable a decade ago, but to actually flail our arms about in a spastic mimicry of the act; meanwhile, the public sees increasing levels of violence among the young in schools and homes and cries out for something to be done. The biggest surprise is probably that it took this long for it to happen, but nonetheless, the Entertainment Software Rating Board's decision to slap an Adults Only (AO) rating on Rockstar's soon-to-be-released killfest Manhunt 2 has created almost as big a splash as the game itself is expected to.
