Re: California Deems Video Game Laws Unconstitutional

GTA4 is rated M. Some of Rockstar's previous games received an AO and were then toned down to get an M instead.

I'm not hugely familiar with the BBFC's rating system, but a quick glance seems to suggest that AO is equivalent to Restricted 18, whereas M is equivalent to 18... technically I believe M is 17+, most stores will only sell to minors if a parent is present (which is the real problem... parents buying M rated games for their kids without paying attention and then complaining about it afterwards).
