    She raped the men as cruelly as Bal had ravished her.

    So Skyrim is officially rated M. Right off the bat this time! Didn't need modded titties or anything.
     
    Here is the ESRB summary:
     

    This is a fantasy role-playing game in which players assume the role of Dovakin, a prophesied figure with the power to combat dragons in the fictional world of Skyrim. As players traverse through mountainous open-world environments, they complete missions and quests that impact the eventual fate of their character. Players use swords, bows and arrows, axes, and magic attacks (e.g., fireballs, ice shards) to kill various enemies (e.g., wolves, dragons, human bandits and soldiers). As players engage in melee-style combat, some sequences are highlighted by slow-motion effects, particularly for decapitations. Large blood-splatter effects also occur during combat, and some environments are stained with blood or body parts (e.g., heads impaled on spikes). Some sequences allow players to injure/kill nonadversary characters, including prisoners chained to a wall; they scream in pain amid splashes of blood or fire. As the game progresses, the dialogue and on-screen text contains references to sexual material (e.g., “. . . all the whores your heart, or any other organ, desires,” “She . . . raped the men as cruelly as Bal had ravished her,” and “Remember when you thought [he] was . . . intent on making you . . . into his personal sex slave?”). Alcohol such as wine, mead, and ale can be purchased and consumed by players' character throughout the game; and in one sequence, players can engage in a drinking contest with another character, which eventually results in slurred speech (e.g., “One more. No problemsh . . . Thash grape!”).

    Yeah, ok, would have been weird at any other rating I think. Kind of surprised the others were rated anything else.

    Oblivion was never that violent. Nothing graphic or explicit. Definitely not any chained prisoners screaming in pain as you torture them.

    I would think the new kill animations alone would be enough to kick it up to M. The ones they've shown so far are pretty brutal.

    These series has always been like that, here is an oblivion example

    "Life is short. If you have not made love recently, please, put down this book, and take care of that with all haste. Find a wanton lass or a frisky lad, or several, in whatever combination your wise loins direct, and do not under any circumstances play hard to get. Our struggle against the colossal forces of oppression can wait."

    From @DCDeacon (Pete Hines) "Yeah, it's part of a one-handed perk you can pick that there's a small chance you can decap. Honestly, it was news to me too." So don't expect to be lopping off heads all the time.

    The zombies in Oblivion are pretty gruesome if you actually look at them. Mort flesh's model is a dismembered zombie arm (leg?). There's a rotten, decapitated head in the Anvil lighthouse basement with pools of blood around it.

    Oblivion has enough gore to get an M rating, I think, even if it's tamer than what typically passes for gore in games.

    If I remember correctly, one of Malog Bal's actual titles is "The King of Rape."

    So yeah, he's really not that subtle about it. You probably shouldn't trust him if he invites you over for coffee or whatever.

    No problemsh! I guess that's the closest I'll get to my dream spell: one that makes everyone in the game talk like Sean Connery.

    Need to make my quota of Lifts-Her-Tail references for this month, so I hope this confirms her appearance in the game.

    Or would that make it AO?
