    Based on a quck look at my M-rated PS2 games, I think I have figured out the difference between "Violence" and "Intense Violence." Games with just plain old vanilla "Violence" (MGS2, Silent Hill 2, and Mafia) only contain gun/explosion violence. Games that carry the "Intense Violence" warning (God of War, MGS3, GTA: San Andreas), all include knives and swords. So there you have it, slitting somebodys throat is more intensely violent than just shooting them.

    Aren't all those games rated M? So what difference does it make?
