Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending May 5th
Today the charts come a little later than usual, thanks to a scorching bank holiday. Now everyone is back at their desks, it’s time to consider what games we might to play when the sun inevitably takes a backseat to clouds and rain.
As with every new week, we’re here to help you choose some of the most popular video game releases for your family. AskAboutGames has poured through the official charts – which cover the previous week of game sales for the UK in its entirety – to create the lists below. They group together the best selling games from the charts by their all-important PEGI age rating category. PEGI ratings are given to games in the UK after analysis by a board of experts at The VSC Rating Board. The idea is that our game lists based on their ratings give you a quick-glance guide to the most popular games within each age category.
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.
