Eh, i disagree. I don't think an M rating should be explicitly targeted, but sometimes 'tasteful' isn't enough. Half the fun of Django Unchained (a movie yes, but it applies to the story/message part of the discussion) is how it revels in its own violent absurdity. That quality is a big part of why people like Tarantino in general :p

There are two types of people who like Tarantino movies: those who like the dialogue and absurdity...and those who just like seeing people get scalped.  I hope you're in the first category.  Unfortunately when you sell a product primarily to kids the kids will want to watch (or play) someone getting scalped (or doing the scalping) for no other reason than that it is "cool."

I can't say i'm personally there explicitly to see violence outside of the amusing frame Tarantino uses to present it, but who cares if some people are? Even ignoring your oversimplification, shaming people for having a fascination with violence, sex, etc, doesn't accomplish much, and the former group alone justifies the existence of Django in its current form. You might find it distasteful (and that's fine), but that doesn't mean others can't appreciate the value something unpleasant can add to the experience. 

I'm not going to discuss the general 'think of the children' angle. I think it largely just deflects responsibility away from parents, so we'll inevitably end up going round in circles until one of us gets bored :p

Eternal darkness is one i can think off top of my head? Zelda could potentially cross over to an M rating.

Considering its a medieval setting, they can go darker - not specifically to sexual themes though.

Rated M for Metroid

Kid Icarus.
Can you imagine? *-*



village boy learns to jump.

Zelda definitely could, but it doesnt really need to. Breath of the Wild might not have blood, gore, or vulgar language, but i would still call it a mature game. It requires a lot of thinking and quick reflexes if you want to avoid dying too much, which is what I would expect from a game targeted at an older audience.

Metroid however could really shine with a higher rating. It deals with bounty hunters, intergalactic parasites, the main villain in the game is a giant demon-like dragon. If they made an M-rated Metroid game and had the privilege of dialing up the gore and possibly even horror aspects of the game, I think people would be thrilled

M-rated Kid Icarus already exists - it is called God of War.

I think the Wario games could go for an M rating. An M rated 3D Wario Land like Conker's Bad Fur Day would be cool. An M rated Wario Ware would also be pretty entertaining.

Yeah, and it helps since he's basically the anti-Mario. :)

^This.



Some days I just blow up.

Metroid I want my aliens to be in agonising and visible pain when I shoot high energy plasma balls and rockets at them. Also imagine the psycho horror elements that a M Rated Metro I'd could provide. Also a mature audience should be able to solve harder puzzles. So a Metroid aimed at an 18+ audience would be nice.
