    Mild violence and scary themes with the mobs and all, but in all other aspects it's suitable for any ages.

    Edited:

    And the fact that you can't use a microphone is probably the deciding factor.

    E for violence.

    Fear and horror elements aren't listed as content descriptors.

    Not only the factors mentioned, but a child under 10 would probably have some trouble getting into the game and it might be a bit too complicated.

    Or that a certain country uses to pretend that it never went through the ESRB rating process so they can prevent it from being released as they're a bunch of dumb old farts with too much power in their hands and therefor despise things that are exciting.

    I think it should be E, because smaller kids could just set it on Peaceful.
    Hell, my 4 year old brother plays it, and he's damn good at it.

    Unrated because it's probably never going to be a retail game.

    Peaceful mode and Classic: Suitable for everyone
    Easy mode and up: 10+ due to enemy mobs, scary caves, the Nether and for being much more complicated.

    E. It'd probably have "cartoon violence" or something on the rating.

    But you can't rate games based on features you can turn-off. You have to go with the highest factor possible.

    Judging by how other games are rated, I'd say this would definitely be E10.

    If it had a rating, it should say this at the beginning:

    "Online interaction, mods, and players' creations not rated by the ESRB."

    It would be E10. If Portal 2, which has less violence, gets E10, so should Minecraft.

    EC because you can disable mobs, and it teaches cooperation and design.

    When has a game ever gotten a higher rating for being complicated?

    It can be scary for younger kids, and they have the "Multiplayer" Feature.

    E10, I accidentally picked E because I was thinking about the pre-E10 ESRB ratings.

    At least I didn't try to look for a K-A option.
