Rating System Wiki

M (Mature 17+)

Mature 17+ games are suitable for people 17 or older. An M-rated game may contain strong violence (with blood and gore), sexual content, nudity, frequent strong language, or depictions of drug use.


In Canada, provincial laws make it illegal to sell an M-rated video game to a person under 17 years of age. In the United States, however, there are no federal or state laws related to the ESRB ratings in force, so it is up to the retailers to enforce age restrictions on purchasing M-rated video games. However, many retailers can vary with minors under 17. Some requiring proof of age and sometimes they can allow to buy a game with an adult and even sometimes they don’t need an adult.
