Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending Oct 7th
With a new week upon us, our regular round-up of the recent best selling games in the UK is here, divided by their age-rating. The ‘mini charts’ below have been presented here to help you choose releases appropriate for the audience playing them. Whether you’re looking for something the whole family can play together, or a game for your adult children, there’ll be something brilliant below.
Here we’ve listed the chart-topping titles for the week ending October 7th, grouped by their PEGI rating.
Despite recent reports of The LEGO Group’s financial struggles of late, games based on their iconic blocks seemingly continue to thrive, with two-out-of-three PEGI 7 chart toppers carrying the Danish toy firm’s logo. Elsewhere not a great deal has changed from last week, perhaps pointing to the fact that the games industry is in a fallow period; all the biggest releases in the coming months are likely waiting for a scheduled release just before Christmas.
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.
