I guess it depends on your point of view on this one, generally I prefer games that don’t have foul language, nudity or over the top violence unless a filter is available in the options menu to toggle it.
While we wait on a response from Rockstar about the toggle we can take a look at the reasons behind the ESRB giving Red Dead Redemption an M for Mature.
According to the ESRB we can expect to see
- In one sequence, a bloodied and mutilated corpse can be seen hanging from the rafters of a barn.
- The game contains a scene in which two characters have sex on a table
- There is a brief instance of female nudity.
- One sequence depicts a man injecting himself with a syringe filled with cocaine.
- Language such as "f**k," "c*nt," and ‘sh*t" can be heard in the dialogue.
Obviously I am hugely disappointed about the brief part and I honestly did not know they had cocaine in the early 1900’s.
