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.
