    It's 3+ so they don't choke on small parts like Pinky.

    Terraria is probably rated 13+

    It would be 10+ if it wasn't for the "Blood and Gore"

    It would be 1+ if it was just a building game that didn't include monsters or fighting.

    I'd say, umm actually agree with the E10+
    For:

    Animated Blood and Gore
    May cause confusion in people under 10 and over 80

    You think a 12 year old will get scared by red pixels?
    So red pixels are inappropriate for anyone who is not a teenager?

    What?

    Please show me one E10 game that actually has "Animated Blood and Gore". E10 can't even have blood. Any type of blood, the game has to be at least rated T. Any type of gore, the game is likely to be M unless it's a top down camera view, or 2D.

    The game would either be T or M. If it was a 3D game it would be M (no doubts about it), but since it's 2D they would likely push it to T since it's less "realistic". Gore is only labelled under M, but i've seen some T games with gore, however it's usually because the game's graphics are lacking (like Terraria).

    I personally find rating useless. Parenting is key. I've seen many kids play Mature games at a very young age, and have no problems. If anything the kids that aren't exposed to violence at a young age get curious about it at a older age and are more likely to do bad things.

    Titles rated M (Mature) have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older. Titles in this category may contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content and/or strong language.

    Decapitations counts as "Blood and Gore" accroding to the ESRB and since bunnies, zombies, and even your charector gets decapitated on death, it counts as blood and gore. Of course 10 year olds could probably play this and be fine but many parents would find it to be rather offensive.

    I'd guess, thinking of ESRB it would get E10+ for:

    • Mild/Fantasy violence
    • Suggestive themes, mild provocative references and/or material
    • References to violence

    We playing the same game? Gibs, gore, and blood are all over my screen when I play. During a goblin invasion or a blood moon my entire house is pretty much full of blood/body parts.
