The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings are designed to provide concise and impartial information about the content in computer and video games so parents and caregivers can make informed purchase decisions. ESRB ratings have two equal parts: rating symbols (on the front of the video game box) that suggest age appropriateness for the game and content descriptors (on the back) that indicate elements in a game that may be of interest or concern.
The ESRB also offers "rating summaries," a supplementary source of information about game content that parents can use when considering which games to purchase for their children. Rating summaries are accessible via the ESRB Web site at www.esrb.org, its rating search widget, and even right from the store using ESRB’s free mobile app or mobile Web site at m.esrb.org.
The Get Game Smart program is designed to help families enjoy video games and online media in ways that are safer, healthier and more balanced.
