The Parents

Parents argue all the time that the video games their children are playing are making them violent, but they never stop to think how their kid got a hold of the game. Parents usually buy their children games because they want them and don't look at the rating and then they blame the game for making them violent.

ESRB Ratings

ESRB ratings were introduced to rate games into age groups so people know what age you have to be in order to purchase the game. It also tells the buyer what kind of content the game will have.
