ESRB statement on anti-tobacco groups
Has the ESRB received any pressure from anti-tobacco groups regarding the rating of games and the use of tobacco in videogames? Spokesman Eliot Mizrachi says that "[the] ESRB has not experienced 'pressure' with respect to this issue, and this may be due in part to precisely what you pointed out - that ESRB's content descriptors do a good job of identifying content that parents would be interested in knowing about given the rating category assigned." You might recall that the data I collected showed that games with a rating below M were more likely to note tobacco use or references.
