Report: Parents aren't too bright on ESRB ratings

parents and gamingThe National Media Organization’s 12th Annual Video Game Report Card had some interesting and not so surprising results to announce.

With all the coverage and controversy over ESRB ratings of games, it turns out that most parents don’t even understand what the ratings represent.

The study also shows that the main cause of friction concerning video games in households is how much gaming time kids can have-especially children between the ages of 8 to 12 years old, although some of us would argue over that finding about the age categories.
