‚ÄúThis plan will help families get better ideas about selecting games for their children and can set a good example for cinematic and television productions. It also helps support our domestic producers and gives better assistance to the distributors.” - Behruz Minaii, managing director of the National Foundation for Computer Games

I often wonder if the game industry should work together to form one, unified game rating system. That way, developers wouldn’t have to fact in multiple ratings boards when creating games. While a nice idea, I just don’t think it would be possible. There are too many countries that think the ESRB is too lenient with their ratings. On the flip side, the ESRB blocks some stuff that other rating systems aren’t so tough on.
