Adults Only Rating
One of the age ratings of the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. This rating is aimed at people who are at least 18 years old. This is why it is termed "Adults Only".

You might be confused as to why the top rating is only one year above the second rating. Generally, only games with pornographic content, or at least borderline porn, give a game the AO rating, and it's quite possible the highest rating was made to conform with general pornography laws, when the ESRB otherwise felt that 17 is the true developmental cutoff. An AO rating is a death sentence to a game's financial viability, as every large retailer will refuse to stock AO games, and the current major console makers refuse to license them.
