Welcome to AskAboutGames. We answer questions parents and players have about video game age ratings, provide advice on how to play games safely and responsibly, and offer families helpful tips to ensure they get the most out of the games they enjoy together.
AskAboutGames is a joint venture between the VSC Rating Board and games trade body Ukie, run with input and advice from across the games industry.
Games are played by people of all ages, and are now a mainstream daily activity for millions across the world, just like music and films. That is why every game published in the UK has a PEGI age rating clearly displayed on the packaging – to help ensure that the right games are enjoyed by the right players.
AskAboutGames is supported by video game publishers and retailers in the UK – who are keen to ensure their products are enjoyed by suitable audiences.
If you have a question about age ratings, are looking for tips about safe and beneficial play, or want to discover the best games to play yourself or with your family, AskAboutGames is here to help.
