Video games and ratings... NIMF vs ESRB

For those interested in game ratings or buying for there kids:

http://www.esrb.com/downloads/nimf_fail.pdf



"In recent years, the report card concept has become increasingly arbitrary, simple-minded, and silly, more of a headline-grabbing tool than a parent-helping tool, and NIMF's 2005 report card continues that disappointing tradition," said ESRB President Patricia Vance. "For years, ESRB respected the work of NIMF, recognizing it as a serious-minded watchdog group sincerely interested in helping parents make smart media decisions, and for this reason we have previously sought to engage them in a cooperative and productive dialogue. But this year NIMF made clear that its real agenda is to undermine parent trust in the ESRB. We will not allow NIMF to mislead parents about the accuracy and effectiveness of ESRB ratings. Accordingly, and reluctantly, we have little choice but to publicly challenge NIMF's numerous inaccurate and misleading claims."



*NIMF is the institute that puts together the yearly list of “what’s good and what’s bad for your child” every Xmas.

I'm just a newb, please go easy on me.
