Grand Theft Auto IV Rated M by the ESRB

Well, nearly a month before it's release, the Entertainment Software Rating Board has given Grand Theft Auto IV an M for Mature rating. It was rated Mature for "Partial Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs and Alcohol, Blood, and Intense Violence." By record, this is the most amount of "bad things" included in a Grand Theft Auto game since the first one came out on the PSone.

I guess they held off on an Adults Only rating considering the Manhunt 2 controversy and the Hot Coffee modification for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
