not important here, but i was really really wondering.... on my guild wars and factions boxes, it says these are rated 'teen' for suggestive themes, alcohol, and violence. in that order. which is whacked... but anyway!
violence, obviously. alcohol use, yes i know about that. but suggestive themes? what the heck are they talking about, there? (well, yeah, i presume sex, but...??? the only thing remotely related to that i've seen was rurik and althea being engaged.)

Or it could be the fact that idiotic people make female characters, take off their armor and dance. I would go with that one.

In pretty much any MMO, you can hotchat (sad enough as it is). That's why I'd imagine it'd get that tag.

Yes, the armors and ability to see the female avatars highly revealing undergarments would definitely qualify as suggestive. Not to mention that they put a lot of time into making the females "move" very authetically, if you understand what I mean.|||Quintus Antonius Adepphius Philologus Tyrianicus Canthacus Elonacus Durheimus|||

Quintus is right on the money

Suggestive Themes - Mild provocative references or materials
Its all the skimpy clothing and panty shots

That's the answer, but it is also wrong.
Nudity is not suggestive. You know those fountains with the little cherub boy peeing? That's a-ok, but if it were in a video game it would be "child pornography"
The funniest thing is that while all these politicians are screaming about nudity in video games there are statues of bare chested women right outside the building where they debate the issue.
The entire ratings process is "voluntary" but the biggest retailers (now with monopolized Gamestop/EBGames!) refuse to sell games that have not gone through the ratings system...so how voluntary is it really?
I may have gone off topic, but this stuff makes me really mad

Look at the Female Ritualist's dance.
If the encoded boob-jiggle is not suggestive, I don't know what is. :P
