Game certification guidelines

Post  gio_in.the.house on Sat Aug 29, 2009 2:00 pm

Early Childhood (eC)
Contains content that is considered suitable for children 3 years of age and older. Games with this rating contain no material that parents or educators would find inappropriate. Games that fall under this rating are specifically intended for young children and are usually educational in nature.


Everyone (E)
Contains content that might be considered unsuitable for children under 6 years of age. Titles in this category may contain minimal fantasy violence.


Everyone 10 and older (E10+)
Contains content that might be considered unsuitable for children under 10 years of age. Titles in this category may contain more fantasy/mild violence, mild language, animated blood and/or minimal suggestive themes. The ESRB introduced the E10+ rating on March 2, 2005.


Teen (T)
Contains content that might be considered unsuitable for children under 13 years of age. Titles in this category may contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood, simulated gambling, and/or infrequent use of moderate language. This rating was often given to games which would have been rated E10+ had they not been released at a time when the E10+ rating did not exist.


Mature (M)
Contains content that might be considered unsuitable for people under 17 years of age. Titles in this category may contain intense violence (more so than in the Teen category), blood and gore, sexual themes/content, use of alcohol/drugs, and frequent use of strong language.


Adults Only (AO)
Contains content that is considered unsuitable for people under 18 years of age. These may include adult video games that depict sex and nudity and/or extreme depictions of violence that include blood and gore. Games from major publishers that receive an AO rating are often 'toned down' in order to gain the lesser rating of M.


Rating Pending (RP)
Game has been submitted to the ESRB and is awaiting final rating. This symbol appears only in advertising prior to a game's release.
