Early Childhood 1994 Games with this rating contain content which the ESRB believes is suitable for young children ages 3 and older. Games that fall under this rating are typically educational games intended for a nursery school audience, and do not contain any inappropriate or objectionable content.
E
Everyone 1998 Games with this rating contain content which the ESRB believes is suitable for a general audience; they can contain infrequent use of mild/cartoon violence and mild language. Until January 1, 1998, when it was renamed "Everyone", this rating was known as Kids to Adults (K-A). LMMCU Crossy Road, Lego Mighty Micros
E10+
Everyone 10 and Older March 2005 Games with this rating contain content which the ESRB

believes is suitable for those aged 10 years and older. They can contain a great amount of violence, mild language, crude humor, or innuendo content than the standard "Everyone" rating can accommodate, but not to the same extent as the "Teen" rating.

AO
Adults Only 1994 Games with this rating contain content which the ESRB believes is unsuitable for those under 18 years of age; they can contain strong sexual themes and content, graphic nudity, or extreme portrayals of violence—morseo high than the "Mature" rating can accommodate. The majority of AO-rated games are "sex and nudity" video games with porn content: the ESRB has seldom issued the AO rating solely for violence.
