Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending January 27th
As the days start to get noticeably longer, dreams of summer and being outside have started to occupy our minds here at AskAboutGames. However, there’s a good few months to get there yet, and games are, of course, a great way to share time together as a family when the nights remain long and the weather insists on being dreary.
And it being Monday, as ever we’re here to help you choose some of the best games for your family. At AskAboutGames we’ve gone through the official charts – which cover the previous week of game sales here in the UK – to create the lists below. They group together the biggest selling games from the charts by their PEGI age rating category. That gives you a quick-glance guide to the most popular games that are age appropriate for your family members.
And as if to prove the the post-Christmas release lull is starting to pass, this week two new games take the number one and number two all-format chart positions: Monster Hunter: World and Dragon Balls Fighterz respectively. And there’s a scattering of other new games in our list below. Enough, in fact, to inspire us to now mark newly charting games with an asterisk, as seen here.
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
