Anyone else think it seems easier (and more attractive to marketing teams) for a game to get an M rating than it is for a film to get an R rating? Most of the big summer blockbusters wind up rated PG-13. Those companies aren't worried that they have to get an R rating to appeal to teenagers. You look at a movie like The Dark Knight, which has plenty of violence and dark themes, and it's rated PG-13. Is Arkham Knight actually more mature than that film, or is it just easier for games to get that rating?
