Researchers asked 65 players, ages 13 to 50, to list their favorite games and recall how many of these depicted tobacco use. Participants remembered playing 118 different games that are evaluated by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB), an industry group in the U.S. that provides voluntary content warnings designed to flag themes that may not be appropriate for younger players.
