ESRB is the acronym for Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Everyone calls it the ESRB and that is how it is written on its ratings.

Video games that developers and publishers actually want to sell need to be rated by the ESRB and post their rating on the game's packaging.

If Sydapedia were a video game that the ESRB had rated, it would be given a rating of AO.
