Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Weeks Ending December 23rd and 30th

 In Uncategorized, Homepage, Console, PEGI, PEGI Charts, PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Top Game Charts

With the festive period behind us, and the taste of leftover mince pies growing less appealing by the day, here at AskAboutGames we’re poised to seize the New Year. And what better way to start than with a look back at what is arguably the most important sales period for the games industry; the Christmas present buying era?

As with or regular game charts, the below looks at the official UK games all-format charts – which covers console, PC and handheld – and groups together the best selling games of each category. This week, however, the below includes charts from the past two weeks. That means one for the week ending the 23rd of December – giving an impression of the most popular games bought for Christmas – and one for the week ending the 30th of December – perhaps showing us what gamers themselves bought for newly received gaming systems, or with cash tucked inside Christmas cards. There’s very little difference, perhaps demonstrating that gift buyers got it right in 2017.

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.
