More Detail...

An ESRB rating "T" means a game is suitable for teenagers and above. Games rated "T" often include moderate amounts of violence (with some blood), moderate language and sexually suggestive terms, mild sexual content, and crude humor. The Entertainment Software Rating Board is a US-based, self-regulatory organization that assigns age and content ratings to video games. The ESRB ratings give information about a game's content to help parents, guardians, and consumers make informed choices about the suitability of games. In addition to its assessment of age suitability, ESRB ratings also incorporate "content descriptors," which provide information about games such as violence levels, gambling, profanity, sexual content, use of alcohol or drugs, and suitability of humor.
