Here's a shocker (but not really): Grand Theft Auto 5 received a "Mature" rating from the ESRB. Of course, for a game revolves around criminal activities, that's to be expected.

"In this open-world action game, players assume the role of three criminals whose storylines intersect within the fictional city of Los Santos.
