Bradley McQuade : Plastic $2 gun toy for kids Government: I sleep Plastic $2 gun used as a controller for a game Government: *R E A L S H I T*

Boozmerk : Heck, in Australia, ours are freaking COLOUR CODED, and parents still seem to ignore them.

ERUS TV : kids at gamestop: i wanna buy gta 5 employee: it 18+ kids at gamestop: i wanna buy a 50$ gift card

EnricosUt : *Parent looks at game* Oh! It's rated M for "My child can play this!"

Keven And Soki : My mom (and I love her for this) wouldn't let me buy Shovel Knight, because she thought you killed people and buried them, hence, the shovel. She felt a tad embarrassed after I showed her gameplay.

Llama Productions : Arrest me because I played an e10 game at 9

Julian Alf : Fun fact: increasing the size of the logo for the age restriction was exactly what happened in Germany

Chase8080 : It's funny how Super Smash Bros Brawl was rated T (probably because of Snake)

Genesiz : Gal gun 1: Hey dad can I have this cool game? It's rated E Gal gun 2: *well I guess I have to disable parental controls*

AnimeWolfgamer : Reminder that the ERSB is own by EA. Let that sink in.

oyun buzu : how to play gta 5, kids. step 1: wait til you're 18

ggioluzza : They should add red arrows and circles. it works on YouTube,so maybe in real life?

c0nceited : 10:36 S H A K E N U N C H U C K T O R E L O A D

Aqua knight : Yall remember evey death in film Like when mufasa died in a stampede Or when obi wan was killed in front of luke Or the time indiana jones killed his rivals and enemies Or when thanos threw gamora and her dead body sat in her own blood

Joey Bud : Every main Halo game was M up until Halo 5, dropped to T.

Lord Krish23 : Kid: oh yea this m rated Mario game is awesome Mom: what are you playing Kid: it’s Mario Mom: but it’s m rated tho Kid : but it’s Mario tho

NumberOne#1 : No matter what time period it is, one thing remains constant: parents & politicians will always find a scapegoat to blame instead of looking at the mirror & realizing that they're part of the problem, if not the main problem

olivia Magaro : Any game including meta knight is rated 10+ bc his theme is too saxy

Omega Omnik : Video game ratings! Where Shadow the Hedgehog got the same rating as most Kirby games!

Tender Quirky Dragon : 11:00 I like how he slaps it on a Kirby game

Arabella_mc : In my opinion, ESRB tends to rate things a bit too high, which, when parents do pay attention to the labels, restricts kids from things that they can deal with fairly easily. I still have the memory of when I was 7 years old and started playing Wizard101 (with the chat features disabled) and tried my hardest to hide from my mum the fact that it was rated E10+, even though that game was not at all scary in any way to me or my brother (who was 5 at the time), this sort of thing happened a fair amount, trying to avoid my mum from seeing ESRB ratings of games, even though I rarely played anything that would be considered inappropriate for my age by the average person. In contrast, my dad allowed my brother and I to watch him play his own video games, which were not at all for kids, when I was 4-5 I watched my dad play a game with a cutscene where a head was being cut off (which was very gory) and was unphased by it, as well as when my brother and I used to watch my dad play battlefield 2 and were even able to have turns playing it occasionally. That being said, I get why these ratings exist, most young children would be scared by the kind of stuff my dad played, or possibly not understand that what happens in game isn't acceptable irl (which my dad made sure we knew). Anyway, it's sad that these strict ratings are in place stopping kids from playing games they're mature enough to handle, while some parents just allow kids to play games that they aren't at all mature enough to handle, and then complain about how violent video games are ruining society.

ElitePlays : I find it funny when I see a game rated M for blood and violence. Then, I see a game rated T for blood and gore, language,drug use, intense violence. That is just stupid.

MoInfinite : The European rating system is much more specific and is in my opinion used a little more by the general public. Also, whenever I watch a video game advertisement, in the beginning it says, *P E G I 1 8*

Skeletonslasher Again : One time a game was rated M for blood and gore. The game next to it was rated T for blood and gore, drug references, and sexual themes. Uh, wut?

Wammi : Did Howard Lincon now you're supposed to *_save that woman_* in Night Trap

Noral Asiah : Example: Age+ (ESRB equivalant) Description My rating system: 1+ (EC) Games for babies. 3+ (E) Games for Everyone. 10+ (E10+) Games for pre-teens. 13+ (T) Games for teens. 16+ (M) Games for post-teens. 18+ (AO) Games for adults and the elders.

MrAwesome 1704 : Where I live we (UK) we have pegi with these 3 and over (3 in a light green box) 7 and over ( 7 in a light green box) 12 and over ( 12 in an orange box) 16 and over ( 16 in an orange box) 18 and over ( 18 in a red box) We also have little pictures as descriptions to what the game has

Noah K : It is illegal for a 9 yr old to play Kirby squeak squad (e10+). A cute pink blob swallows stars and spits them out at mice and rats. Wuddya think a kid’s gonna do? Spit on mice?

Buzzing Sign Diner : Well at least making the ESRB ratings the size of the case will save companies a bundle on making boxart.

Trvial : By far the biggest shining moment in the ESRB was their description of Scribblenauts for the DS. I quote: "Steak can be attached to a baby to attract lions." Pure gold.

Budling : Me explaining food quality at school 0:21

desposyy : Simpsons hit and run is easily the better of those two games

ChillyRed : Kids: play grand theft auto Me: still plays Smash Bros.

Hype Nyan cat : Hey y’all. RELAXALAX HERE

Frump Luis : Kids should just play splatoon if they want to play a shooter game.

Cannabis Hornliu : Kirby final bosses and finals... Rated E for ETERNAL HELL AND NIGHTMARES. #KirbyLore ;-)

thegreatcarraway : "Most retail chains won't carry products Rated AO" Fry's Electronics be like "Yo dawg I gotchu."

Shanez1215 : Why the hell was Halo rated M?

Cardboard : Kirby games are rated E10+ because of *succual* themes

Kaizir : Well it's confirmed! Vinegar is E for Editable™!

That Kid Called AJ : Scott, did you... Did you 100% Kirby 64? _...Did you play almost any Kirby game before then?_

paco ramon : I prefer the European system 3 green 7 green 12 yellow 16 orange 18 red.

naruho dont : may i just express how much i appreciate that perfectly placed ace attorney soundtrack

Executer 66 : Scott The Woz: Rated U for Underrated

Zachary Pearce : I hate ESRB lol. I remember my mom wouldn’t let me get Dead Island when I was in 7th grade because esrb wrote “sexual themes” on the rating description and the GameStop employee had to inform my mom of that. After begging her to buy it for me, the only sexual thing in this game was walking into a Hut and seeing two zombies in a room, dressed, with a camera facing them, pink lighting, and some porno music. Nothing actually sexual. Just something for the people old enough to understand.

kiddo 3008 : I only have G PG M MA15+ R18+ Is that bad

Nicholas Brown : TJ looks at the AO rating “Ah shit! here we go again”

TonyThatOrc : I am so glad that my parents aren't like "Oh it's T, my son is not playing this!" My parents do their own research instead of listening to the fake news on the media.

Ultra Derp : "How are so many Kirby games rated E10+?" Have you seen the nightmare fuel that is Kirby's final bosses?!
