ESRB Just as Unhappy as Fans Over L4D2 but for Dumber Reason
The announcement of Left 4 Dead 2 resulted in outrage and even a boycott among fans. The ESRB isn’t too happy either, but not because of the game itself: Apparently the cover art was too gory. (They apparently don’t like the V sign)
It seems that three chewed off fingers is just a little too much for the ESRB. They’ve banned Valve from using the image in any marketing materials and the cover art. One chewed off thumb is okay, though. Maybe it’s because the thumb isn’t actually a finger but an appendage.
Who knows? It’s a little ridiculous to say the least. Luckily the game itself is fine with the guys over at the ESRB, but even something as little as the cover art ban is sure to only put fuel on the boycott fire.
