While reading the same article I found something that categorized games. “In 1994, the video game industry established the Educational Software Rating Board (ESRB) as a voluntary system where video games could be rated according to violence or other inappropriate material. Rating video games according to age-appropriate categories was intended to prevent underage children from playing games considered too intense for them”. While this isn’t a restriction on inappropriate material in video games, it is a step in the right direction because it gives the average parent the necessary information needed to decide if a particular game is inappropriate for their child.
