GameTrailers has had a bit of a rant about an ESRB order to remove Fallout 3 trailers, with staffers blasted the organisation in the site’s latest video podcast.

“They are a body made up of unqualified nincompoops,” said one. “Unfortunately, they’re taking the nanny state to the nth degree. They make the FCC look like a bunch of broad-minded, non-censorship individuals.”

GameTrailers editor-in-chief Shane Satterfield, likens the ESRB to “the frickin’ Mafia,” saying that the ratings board’s actions are part of a “power trip.”
