I would like your honest answers about what kind of content is in this game.

I have younger siblings that play on my computer and watch what I play as well so I don't want to get this game if it contains too much ''stuff''.

What profanities are used? Do they say F*** or any variant off of it?

How much sexual content and nudity is in here as well? I read about the re-rating of this game and I thought it was stupid to give it an ''M'' because of 3'rd party mods.

I am not too worried about violence in this game as all the vids I watched of it didn't look to bad. What's the goriest part in this game?

As for all the magic it didn't look too bad. Do they go into any heavy duty witchcraft?

I realize that everyone has different opinions on what is inappropriate and what is not. But I'm not trying to say what is right or wrong here I simply would like to know what this game contains.

Well, going by the rating guide, the game contains:

Blood and Gore - Depictions of blood or the mutilation of body parts
Language - Mild to moderate use of profanity
Nudity - Graphic or prolonged depictions of nudity
Sexual Themes - References to sex or sexuality
Use of Alcohol - The consumption of alcoholic beverages
Violence - Scenes involving aggressive conflict. May contain bloodless dismemberment

The "Nudity" descriptor is only due to the mod though, so as long as you won't be using the mod you don't have to worry about that one.

Also, I typically find that if a game uses the word you speak of, it receives a "Strong Language" descriptor, so I wouldn't be too worried about that either.

Keep in mind that the game was also re-rated in part due to more gore found in the game than was originally revealed to the ESRB. This gore includes detailed, mutilated, bloody corpses.

Harry Potter games are rated E or E10+, so I don't think the ESRB factors the use of magic into their ratings. Why would they?

Hope that helps.

I don't mind the use of some magic but just as long as they don't go into any really freaky witchcraft or anything like that. But shooting fireballs and lighting and such is cool with me :)
