It’s Not Beer Pong, It’s Now “Pong Toss”

Posted by Dave On July - 19 - 2008

You may remember back in May we discovetred that video game developers were coming up with a version of beer pong to be played on your Nintendo Wii.  Pretty cool, right? Well, apparently the name had to be changed and all references to alcohol ripped out of the game in order to get an “E” rating by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB). The ESRB is basically the governing body that rates video games much like movies get a PG-13 or R rating. According to the ESRB, any reference to alcohol in a game automatically garners an AO (Adults Only) rating. An E rating means everyone can play this game.

Now the game has been watered down (excuse the pun) to depict virtual players tossing ping pong balls into plastic cups.  Gee, I guess the nation’s underage drinking problem can’t be blamed on kids playing a video game anymore. Political correctness wins again!

    Playing beer pong on a video game is like bringing a picture of a keg to a party. Without the drinking you have no game anyway.
