The Sims 4 is rated 18+ in Russia

Next instalment of favourite game of young girls and housewives, The Sims 4 was rated 18+ “Not suitable for children” in Russia.


As I wrote earlier there is no official rating entity in Russia and all rating are issued by local publisher. In this case – Electronic Arts Russia.

Supposedly the game was rated 18+ because it features gay and lesbian relationships between characters.

    They said that it had been rated 18+ in accordance with the Federal Law no. 436-FZ of 2010-12-23 “On Protection of Children from Information Harmful to Their Health and Development” and it was only valid on the territory of Russia.

    Russian authorities are complete pussies, they should have banned this game instantly on RF territory.
    That’s not what their grand fathers has died for at WWII, one would say.
