But when you're living in Germany, PEGI means nothing to you. My copy of Oblivion has a PEGI of 16+ and a USK of 12.

You exactly got out my point

@Kobold: I know I have to wait for USK but since the game won't be sold in Germany there might be a chance that USK won't control or at least won't stick it's +16-mark on it
and btw: Tomb Raider: Legend was PEGI: 12 and USK: 16

I've been looking forward to it too, but it'll never match the fun I had on Battlefield-2142.

Found my answer about Insecticide (the game that looks like Psychonauts):
Quote:
Q: Insecticide’s art style reminds us of Psychonauts and the game has been soaked in film noir, what were some of your influences in making Insecticide?

A: We love Psychonauts. Peter Chan, who worked on it, also worked heavily on Insecticide. But if you look beyond Chrys (the lead character) there is little to no comparison. Psychonauts takes place in a (albeit weird) summer camp – our game is in a dirty, crime ridden city made from evolved insects. When people take a close look at our game and locations, they will see Insecticide really has its own look and feel.

Its always been heavy on the cinematics.
TwinSnakes on the cube was fun enough, but farrr too many/long codex scenes.

I mean in terms of cinematics, MGS2 has more than you can imagine.
But still it's my favorite.

looking forward to fallout 3, The Australian Office of Film and Literature Classification banned it. We need an 18+ rating for video games.
