In 1993, Sega of America created the Video Game Rating Council to rate all video games released for the Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Sega Game Gear, and Sega 32X. The policy was created in response to public criticism of the Digital Picture's Sega CD 1992 game titled Night Trap and the announcement that the Sega Genesis version of ultra-violent arcade game Mortal Kombat would be uncensored. Depending on a game's content, the Video Game Rating Council would give a game one of the following ratings:

  • GA (General Audience)
  • MA-13 (Mature Audiences 13+)
  • MA-17 (Mature Audiences 17+)
