E means "Everyone" (Game Classification) and "Ecstasy" (Drug). Here is more information about each of these definitions E, with examples of use.


The letter E is a rating used by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) to indicate that a game is considered suitable for "Everyone" (i.e., for all ages).

According to the ESRB, an E rating indicates that the game may contain minimal cartoon, fantasy or mild violence and/or infrequent use of mild language. For example:
  • Jo: Do you know a good E-rated game I could get my nephew for his birthday?
  • Ali: Forget the E rating! You can't go wrong with Donkey Kong!


The letter E is also used in speech and text to refer to the recreational synthetic drug ecstasy. For example:
  • Sam: Can you get me some E?
