History

Proto-Semitic T Phoenician
taw
Etruscan T Greek
Tau
Proto-semiticT-01.png PhoenicianT-01.png EtruscanT-01.svg Tau uc lc.svg

Taw was the last letter of the Western Semitic and Hebrew alphabets, and probably represented a cross. The sound value of Semitic Taw, Greek alphabet Tαυ (Tau), Old Italic and Latin T has remained fairly constant, representing IPA: [/t/] in each of these; and it has also kept its original basic shape in all of these alphabets.

Usage

In English, ‹t› often denotes the voiceless alveolar plosive (International Phonetic Alphabet and X-SAMPA: /t/), as in tea.

ESRB logo

The ESRB was established in 1994 by the Entertainment Software Association. It is a self-regulatory body for the interactive entertainment software industry which applies and enforces ratings, advertising guidelines, and online privacy principles adopted by the computer and video game industry. It's typically the responsibility of the publisher to make the ESRB aware of any game content that may affect its rating.

Contents

Online Rating Notice

Online games that include user-generated content (e.g., chat, maps, skins) carry the notice Game Experience May Change During Online Play to warn consumers that content created by players of the game has not been rated by the ESRB. This is used to describe the fact that players online may speak in inappropriate manners, or use foul language (which cannot be effectively rated by ESRB).

Game Ratings

Rating pending

Titles displaying RP (ESRB: RP) have not yet received a final rating. This rating is reserved for game art created before the game's rating is finalised.

Early childhood

Titles rated EC (ESRB: EC) have content that may be suitable for ages 3 and older. Contains no material that parents would find inappropriate.

Everyone

Titles rated E (ESRB: E) have content that may be suitable for ages 6 and older. Titles in this category may contain minimal cartoon, fantasy or mild violence and/or infrequent use of mild language. Added to the ESRB ratings icons in 1997 as a replacement for the K-A rating.

Everyone 10+

Titles rated E10+ (ESRB: E10+) have content that may be suitable for ages 10 and older. Titles in this category may contain more cartoon, fantasy or mild violence, mild language, and/or minimal suggestive themes. Added to the ESRB ratings icons on March 2, 2005.

Teen

Titles rated T (ESRB: T) have content that may be suitable for ages 13 and older. Titles in this category may contain violence, suggestive themes, crude humor, minimal blood and/or infrequent use of strong language.

Mature

Titles rated M (ESRB: M) have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older. Titles in this category may contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content, and/or strong language.

Adults only

Titles rated AO (ESRB: AO) are games that should only be played by persons 18 years and older. Titles in this category may include prolonged scenes of intense violence and/or graphic sexual content and nudity. Additionally, Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony will not authorise any AO-rated game for publication on their consoles.

Most games are rated between the Everyone and Mature ratings. The AO rating is currently treated very harshly as the majority of video game retailers refuse to carry any games with an AO rating.

Outdated Game Ratings

Certain Game Ratings have been dropped in favor of newer ratings.

Kids to Adults

ESRB's Kids to Adults rating icon

Titles rated K-A (ESRB: K-A) have content suitable for persons ages 6 and older. Titles in this category may contain minimal violence and some comic mischief or crude language. This rating was ended in favor of the Everyone rating in 1997 because the K-A Rating was too much of the same as the E rating.
