Established in 2012 by the Casual Games Association, the Family Friendly Rating Council (FFRC) provides an easy-to-use rating system to assist parents and educators in selecting video game content appropriate for children of different ages and maturity levels.
The FFRC is administered by the Casual Games Association. Founded in 2005, the Casual Games Association is a professional international trade organization providing educational resources and community support for those involved in creating games for the mass market consumer. Casual games are found on a myriad of platforms including personal computers, video game consoles, mobile phones and handheld devises. Because of their ease of distribution, varied monetization methods and mass appeal, casual games are distributed in a wide variety of locations including retail stores, major online portals, social networks, and specialty online retailers.
