Just like with movie ratings, the ESRB ratings for video games can be quite confusing to follow, but 'An Illustrated Guide to ESRB' breaks it down to such simplistic terms that even a socially awkward 40-something-year-old living in his mother's basement can understand it.
Courtesy of Nerf Now comics, 'An Illustrated Guide to ESRB' is a four-panel illustration with the ESRB ratings on the right side of each panel, and a picture of a women in the rest of the space. The more sensual and revealing bits of the woman invoke higher ESRB ratings, until we reach her feet with several tentacles latching onto it. We'll leave that one to your imagination.
Implications - Consumers enjoy web comics because they offer them a source of humor, which they use to alleviate everyday stress. Corporations may consider creating a Web comic series as a way to covertly disseminate company information to mass audiences.
