Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending May 26th
After a bank holiday weekend where the sun stayed out at AskAboutGames towers – despite the forecasts – we didn’t get around to playing half as many games as we expected. But making the most of games in a healthy, positive way is about knowing when to put the controller down as well as when to pick it up.
But now the week has started proper, there’s new game charts to take in, to see what we might play next time the sun goes into hiding.
So we’ve gone through the latest all formats video game charts, and pulled out the three best-selling games under each PEGI age-rating category. PEGI ratings are given to games in the UK after careful analysis by a group of specialists at The VSC Rating Board. The team there apply a rating between three-years-plus at the lowest end, and 18-years-plus at the other side of the spectrum, having explored a given game’s content in detail. You can use the lists below to see which popular games best suit your family’s respective ages.
Many 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.
