Mature-rated titles only make up 5% of games published last year

Boobs and blood might get all the press, but mature-rated titles only comprised 5% all games rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board and published last year, according to a recent news release.

Of the 1,638 ratings handed out by the board in 2010, 1 percent were rated EC, 18 percent were rated E10+, 21 percent were rated T and more than half, at a whopping 55 percent, were rated an all-ages friendly E. That leaves only 5 percent falling into the 17+ category, despite the media’s apparent assertion that most videogames are rape training simulators. Yeah, you’re never gonna live that down Carole.
