The Entertainment Software Ratings Board has posted up a lovely pie chart which provides a look the ratings received by games in the US during 2010.

The “M” rating was only applied to 5 percent of the 1,638 games released and rated by the ESRB last year, with 55 percent of games released handed an “E” for Everyone rating.

Looking over the colorful pie, 18 percent of games were given an “E 10+” rating and 21 percent were given a “T” for Teen.

You can look over the chart here.

    I’d be interested to see this chart compared to a chart for overall sales within each of those categories. Wouldn’t surprise me if M rated games garner a higher per unit sales ratio as compared to per unit sales ratio in the other categories

    No thats actually not the case E and T rating actually have the most sales compared to rated M games. It just like PG13 movies sell more than rated R.
