Alan Wake Receives T Rating

Remedy’s long awaited atmospheric thriller Alan Wake will finally see the light of day in a few months, and, like a lot of people, I honestly can’t wait to get my hands of it. (As you’d expect, I kind of hate Andrew Pfister just a little bit since he had the chance to check out the game for a recent preview, which you can read right here.)

And while I’m expecting the game to be an intense and terrifying experience, I wasn’t expecting to hear Microsoft announce today that the game actually received a T rating from the ESRB.

For a game heavily inspired by Stephen King and David Lynch, I was preparing for a solid bit of skillfully handled mature content from Mr. Wake, a best-selling thriller-writing novelist. Don't get me wrong. I still think the game is going to be intense and terrifying as hell (after all terror isn’t about gore), but it’s still a little surprising to hear.

Plus, a Mature rating doesn’t necessarily just mean tons of bloody violence. Heavy Rain is a testament to that. So it’s going to be very interesting to see what Remedy has done within the “limitations” of a T rating, besides probably sell a lot more copies than they would had the game carried an M rating.
