Video and Computer Game Software Rating Information
Video and Computer Game Software Rating
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings are designed to provide information about video and computer game
content, so you can make informed purchasing decisions. ESRB ratings have two parts: rating symbols suggest age appropriateness
for the game, and content descriptors indicate elements in a game that may have triggered a particular rating and/or may be of
interest or concern.
To take full advantage of the ESRB rating system, it’s important to check both the rating symbol (found on the front of the game box)
and the content descriptor (found on the back of the game box). Go to www.esrb.org for a complete list of these content descriptors.
The ESRB rating system is designed to provide information about a computer or video game. The ratings are not meant to recom-
mend which games consumers should buy or rent or to serve as the only basis for choosing a product. Rather, individuals should use
the ESRB ratings together with personal tastes and standards when deciding what is best to purchase.
For more information on the ESRB and its video game ratings, go to the ESRB web site at www.esrb.org. For Nintendo 3DS packaged
games, the Brazilian game rating issued by the Departamento de Justiça, Classicação, Título e Qualicação (DJCTQ) will also be
provided. For more information on the DJCTQ and its video game ratings, please visit www.mj.gov.br/classicacao.
