Video game ratings in the UK may be in for an overhaul. Psychologist Dr. Tanya Byron says that more games need to be rated by the regulating body BBFC. Currently only games found to have human sexual activity or gross violence have to be reviewed by actual people at the BBFC.

Reports say that 250 games are submitted for review each year currently. Byron says that she believes all games intended for age 12 and over should receive an actual review by the BBFC.
The problem is that adapting these new standards will mean a dramatically increased workload for the BBFC. Byron says that the overhaul is needed to empower parents. Personally, I don’t think a new ratings system will make much of a difference, parents simply don’t pay attention to what kids are doing far too often.
