Activision Family Game Summit
Another person on the panel that I took a lot away from was Patricia Vance, president of the gaming ratings board, ESRB. The rating system has become even more inclusive recently, especially in an important area everyone's thinking about (or at least I am) before buying a game to give and that's both its content and interactiveness. Now the rating system tells you about how much personal data might be collected or shared about the person playing it, if it allow the player to chat with strangers, buy things and so on. To make this easier to check, especially on the fly while holiday shopping, they now have an ESRB ratings app to download.
