Games are becoming more common than ever, but the time-consuming and expensive methods to rate them for mature content haven't grown along with them. Small games, especially indie games, cannot afford the fee charged by organizations like the ESRB or PEGI for a full rating which requires someone to review the game's content and mark it by hand. Allowing developers to submit their own games which are then subject to consumer review for accuracy would make it possible even for small games to get content ratings, however platforms such as Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, and even the App Store would need to encourage developers to use the system.
