The Oklahoma Attorney General is teaming up with the Electronic Software Rating Board to educate parents on the content of video games.

A new public service announcement from Attorney General Scott Pruitt is starting today about the ESRB’s video game rating system.

Pruitt says the system is essential to deciding what is appropriate for children.

“What you don’t want as a parent is to be surprised. What you don’t want is to go buy a game that on the cover looks different than what it is as far as content, just like a movie.”

The rating system runs from Early Childhood for kids three and older to adults only as well as content descriptors like violence and sexual content.

More information can be found at esrb.org and there’s a free app which can give information on the game just by taking a picture of it.
