North American Movie & Video Game Ratings Guides

Ratings for movies and video games are determined and pre-issued based on a title's content to help inform the consumer about the product they are buying or renting, as well as informing those who are making the product available to the public. 

The following databases not only show how the ratings systems work, but also have extensive search engines that will allow you to find the ratings for movies or games you are searching for.
