User Summary

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) was founded and started rating games in the year 1994. It is a self-regulatory organization that assigns age and content ratings and enforces industry-adopted advertising guidelines for computer and video games in the United States and Canada.

M for Mature: Games that contain content that is considered unsuitable for people under 17 years of age. The content is strong in impact and may contain mature humor, intense violence, sexual themes, strong language, nudity, and/or more gambling, blood, and gore than the Teen rating would accommodate.

In addition to the letter-based rankings, official ESRB ratings include an appropriate Content descriptor of potentially objectionable content. Those associated with a M rating are:
