Just curious to see if anybody buys videogames with certain ratings more so than others. The ones I will list are for my ps2 games, my other videogames are in boxes since I am moving next week.

(E)veryone- 7
(T)een - 7
(M)ature - 6

I didn't even know they had the rating system in Canada.

I'd say my games are all over the charts. Mostly E, probably because I have so many sports titles.

heh, for some reason, that gave me a good laugh. Another thing about video games in Canada is that for some of that games that I have bought, I get 2 instruction manuals, one english and one french.

I have 3 kids so almost all of mine are rated E, I picked up several rated T at the CC sale over the weekend though.

I don't even know, I pick up a game based on how well it is made, not by it's rating.

Of my games that are rated by the ESRB, about 70% are rated E (or K-A), 20% are T, and about 10% are M.

I think thats a retarded way to choose which video games to buy unless you're buying for your kids, but thats just my opinion.

I've mostly got E and T games, and a few M ones, but I never even give the rating a second look when I'm looking at which games to buy.

I don't know, but I would imagine 99% E and T. I have GTA, Metal Gear, Halo and Resident Evil, but that is about all the appeals to me from the M side of gaming. Actually I didn't really like Halo that much (came with my console) and I absolutely hated Metal Gear Solid.

Guess I'm a not much for the M rated games.
