Lightbulb Game Ratings?

I was sitting around, jumping between Abandonia and Wikipedia, checking game ratings (because I don't play M games) when I thought "Hey, wouldn't it be great if reviews had the various different game ratings for ESRB,RSAC, and so forth?" And I was wondering if this could be incorporated in for any games that apply(as in, have a rating, sometimes they're too old.)

I could even help out with the process if you wanted me to!

There's not enough games that have ratings. Right now, only Mortal Kombat comes to my mind. That started the whole rating thing, and majority of games here are older than that.

Different countries use different ratings system.

Here in the UK, we use age ratings (12, 15, 18), and I have no idea what M games is.

Which is why I said that it could be like a table of ratings

It could have ESRB, RSAC, the british thing, that silly thermometer, and wherever else the game is rated!

@TheChosen: I've found several games with ratings:
Jazz Jackrabbit 1 and 2
Blood
Bloodnet
Abuse
Command & Conquer

the list goes on and on...

This might be useful, but will require changes in the site modules (ie will have to be ddone by Studentis).

I don't think it will be useful in any way.
