Happy 15th Birthday, ESRB

Fifteen years ago today, the game industry got on the same page for one shining moment to propose the video game ratings organization, the ESRB, to Congress.

Holy craps, has it really been 15 years since they started rating video games?  I remember when it all started and I thought to myself “hey, that’s going to be pointless” and check it out, the ESRB is one of the most pointless ratings organizations out there.  When was the last time you stopped to look at the ratings on a video game?

  1. Wait what is a ESRB rating? I’ve ignored them all my life. Especially since I’ve been a hardcore GTA fanatic for ever. I love playing games that piss off your local congressman. America Fuck Yeah!

  2. It may seem pointless, but it’s one of the most successful examples of an industry’s attempt at self-regulation. I’d rather have the ESRB than something Tipper Gore would propose.
