Games the ESRB Has Rated Incorrectly


The Top TenXW

1Super Smash Bros. Brawl

What? This game isn't even the slightest amount of inappropriateness. Ok, the most inappropriate thing in it is wario farting while flying, which had me cracking up laughing when I was a kid. The most violent thing is attacking an opponent with a red plasma sword. No blood either. Frankly, even if there were any blood, it would be NOTHING compared to mortal kombat games and Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty

What's so inappropriate? I was like 5 and my brothers were like 10 when we got this game. Our parents bought it. I played it, expecting mature stuff, and there was NOTHING bad about it. It should be at least E10. I think it was because Solid Snake is in the game. - Discord

There's nothing inappropriate in this game

I think it has something to do with samus aran

2Bombing Bastards

E10+ for Language isn't too uneasonable. Anything with damn, hell, or bastard (and aren't used properly) gets the E10+ rating automatically.

I actually disagree. Just because it has a bad word on the title doesn't mean it should be rated M. - randomuser2525

3The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Ocarina of Time had actual blood. What is Ocarina of Time rated? E. For everyone. ITS Zelda, PEOPLE! THIS IS FINE FOR KIDS! - Discord

Same reason as Melee, this game got some spooky things going on. - Metts

This game should be rated E10, or even E. It's actually less dark and gritty than Wind Waker despite the art style.

4Super Smash Bros Melee

Melee's rating isn't that far off if you know that E10+ didn't exist in 2001. It was either E or T, and the ESRB decided to play it safe (Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS are both rated E10)

Why Is The Original Super Smash Bros Game Rated E If The Other Are Rated T - MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER

I'm guessing Giga Bowser is the primary reason for SSBM being rated T. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

5Mario and Luigi: Dream Team

This game should be rated E. England rated it for 3+. Maybe the 3D graphics pulled tge ESRB toward E10+

V1 Comment

The sequel was worse, it should be E10+. maybe it is because it came packaged with 4 M rated games and had blood

7Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
8The Typing of the Dead

Is this game about zombies showing you how to type? What the heck is this?! - RiverClanRocks

I think all adults know how to type... - N64Dude

9Donkey Kong Jungle Beat
10The Simpsons: Virtual Springfield

Should be E10+ or pegi 11 because just because there is an little bit of hell,damn,ass does not mean only teens should play this game.

The Contenders

11Donkey Konga 2

Rated T for Teen for Bad Lyrics. Who cares? It's just a stupid song. - N64Dude

12Pikmin 2

Should be E10+ there is a boss that shoots you with a gun and don't get me started on the final boss the titan dewevil - ikerevievs

13Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders
14The Incredibles

A game based off of The Incredibles was given a T rating. enough said.

15ShrekV2 Comments

I can understand the Japanese version being rated M: do you know how much they censored this game before it was released in the USA? - FernandoLemon

The ESRB rates it T for Teen for blood? Other than a tiny bit coming out of one of the enemies mouths, there is no blood. E10+ at most - N64Dude

18Tom and Jerry: War of the Whiskers

However kids can play online, which can be very inappropriate. Some Minecraft skins( or avatars, for few of those unfamiliar with the game) can be inappropriate and sexual.

Why e10+ there's no major violence in this game - ikerevievs

Violence in this game includes: killing zombies, spiders and wolves, lighting animals on fire, killing animals with swords, axes, and bows, exploding TNT, and killing other players with objects and weapons. E10+ is the correct rating, if you ask me. - Extractinator04

Maybe because you kill animals. I hate this anyway - Therandom
