Important Health Warning About Playing Video Games
Photosensitive Seizures
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain
visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games.
Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed
condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” while watching video
games.
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered
vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation,
confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of
consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking
nearby objects.
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these
symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms—
children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures. The
risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by taking the following
precautions: Sit farther from the screen; use a smaller screen; play in a well-lit room;
and do not play when you are drowsy or fatigued.
If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor
before playing.
ESRB Game Ratings
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings are designed to provide
consumers, especially parents, with concise, impartial guidance about the ageappropriateness and content of computer and video games. This information can
help consumers make informed purchase decisions about which games they deem
suitable for their children and families.
ESRB ratings have two equal parts:
•
Rating Symbols suggest age appropriateness for the game. These symbols
appear on the front of virtually every game box available for retail sale or
rental in the United States and Canada.
•
Content Descriptors indicate elements in a game that may have triggered a
particular rating and/or may be of interest or concern. The descriptors appear
on the back of the box next to the rating symbol.
