Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Sept 23rd
It’s the time of week where we give you a guide to the recent best selling games in the UK, divided by their age-rating. We do this to help you choose releases appropriate for the audience playing them. Maybe you’re after a game for your entire family to enjoy as one, or a title for your kids, whatever their age.
Below we’ve listed the chart-topping titles for the week ending September 23rd. No – we don’t know how this year has passed so quickly. But we do know that these charts are specially grouped by their respective PEGI age ratings.
The past week marks a return for iconic and long lasting children’s titles. Originally released for the Game Boy Color in Japan in 1999, and pivotal to the series’ ongoing success, Pokémon Gold Version is back for 3DS, and selling well. And recognising the more recent monster pocketing games, Pokémon Tournament DX has charted rather well too. If one kids’ IP is more iconic than Pokémon, though, it might be LEGO. And thanks perhaps to its recent release on the Nintendo Switch, building and exploring game LEGO Worlds is back in the charts. Meanwhile, the best selling game of any age group continues to be Destiny 2, which does offer an alternative to its often 18-rated genre mates.
It’s worth noting that the ratings below denote content that is appropriate in theme and tone. They don’t always indicate the ability or age required to necessarily get the most from the game. A three-years-plus rated football management game, for example, won’t contain content that would be disturbing for a four-year old, but it may be too complex for a youngster of that age.
