With our new website we're re-launching our age-rated game charts.
These distinct charts give you a guide to the best selling games in the UK, divided by their age-rating. That lets you choose releases appropriate for the audience playing them, whether you're looking for a game for the kids, or a title for the whole family to enjoy as one.
Below you'll find the chart-topping titles for the week ending September 16th, grouped by their respective PEGI age ratings.
As with last week's charts, the seven-years-plus category stands out, though this time it's because it is packed entirely with returns by classic gaming character icons. Gamers young, old and nostalgic have plenty fun to discover through the new outings for Metroid's Samus, the iconic Crash Bandicoot and the beloved Rayman. Meanwhile the 12-rated Overwatch continues to thrive as an online shooter without the usual 16-plus or 18-plus age rating, and NHL 18 brings some energetic sporting action to the same age grouping.
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.
