Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending April 21st
After a stunning weekend in the sunshine, here at AskAboutGames towers the cold has returned, meaning a chance to squeeze in some gaming without the guilty feeling that we should be out in the garden. If you’re in a similar situation, you might be looking for some new games for your family to play.
Fortunately, you’ve found the right place to check out the most popular games of the past week, grouped by their PEGI age-rating so that you can see which is appropriate for your family.
PEGI ratings are granted to games in the UK by a group of specialists at The VSC Rating Board. They might deem a very family-friendly game as suitable for players aged three years old and above… or they might see that a very adult game will only suit an adult audience, meaning it gets and 18-years-plus rating. And physical copies of games cannot be sold in the UK without a PEGI rating. Each week the AskAboutGames team pour through the latest all formats game charts in full – which list the best selling games in the UK – selecting the three highest ranking games from each age category, and gathering them in the categories below.
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.
