Percentage of M-Rated Games Declining Rapidly
ESRB assigned 1,563 ratings in 2007, the largest amount in our 13-year history. While a handful of M-rated titles tend to garner a majority of media attention, the E (Everyone 6+) rating category continues to dominate. The E category saw the largest increase over last year, accounting for nearly 60% of ratings assigned overall. The M (Mature 17+) category represented 6% of the overall ratings assigned, down from 8% in 2006 and 12% in 2005. The E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) and T (Teen 13+) categories accounted for 15% and 20% respectively.
