Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending May 12th
Here at AskAboutGames we know that the benefits playing games can bring are only a reality if the audience is served with age-appropriate content.
That’s why, each week, we present the latest UK game sales chart in a way that makes it easy for you to find the most popular titles suitable for the age of the gamers in your family. We go through the official charts to build the lists below. Each groups together the best selling games from the charts by their PEGI age rating category, and lists them by the order they appeared in the full charts. In the UK PEGI certificates are given to games by a board of experts at The VSC Rating Board; we use their ratings to guide our groupings. So if you have, for example, a seven-year-old and a nine-year-old in your family, and you want a popular game for them to play, you could glance at the three-years-plus and seven-years-plus lists below, and ignore the older-age groupings.
Most games below link to their profile over on The VSC Rating Board website, so you can see details of why they were granted the rating they received.
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.
