Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending October 6th

 In Blog, Console, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, PEGI Charts, News, PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Top Game Charts

Making games a positive part of your family’s life starts by picking the most appropriate games for your youngsters.

That can be easier said than done, when there are so many games about, and so much information about them exists. So we’re here to provide a round-up of the current most popular boxed games in the UK, specially tailored so families can select games by their age rating.

We pour through the official UK games sales charts, before creating 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.

Put more simply, below you can see the three best selling games of the week under each age rating.

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.
