Part of the problem, atleast form what I've heard, is that some parents just don't care. Their kids whine and plead until the parent gives in and just buy the game to shut their kids up. It's like they want the entertainment center, TV, game systems, yadda, yadda, to "watch" their kids for them.

I also think some parents just don't get it. One example I heard on the news. A grantmother bought her 13 year old grandson GTA because it was rated teen. When she found out that the rating had been changed to "M" she said she wouldn't have bought it then.

People need to read the reasons on the back of the box to see WHY it's rated whatever.
