Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending August 13th
After something of a delay, finally this week the UK video game sales charts are available to the public, so we’ve compiled our regular list helping you pick the most popular age-appropriate games for you family.
Regular readers will know this update usually arrives every Monday. While we at AskAboutGames don’t know the exact reason for the hold up, we do know that the charts need games retailers across the country to provide sales data on each game they’ve sold. Gathering and compiling all that data is a wildly complex task, and now it is done.
So why do we provide these charts?
There are a lot of video games available, and not all of them will be suitable for your family. For that reason, here at AskAboutGames we pour through the latest all formats video game charts. Then we pull out the three best-selling games under each PEGI age-rating category. That gives you a quick-glance round-up of the most popular video games suitable under each age-rating: 3-plus, 7-plus, 12-plus, 16-plus and 18-plus. Those PEGI ratings are given to games in the UK after careful analysis by a group of specialists at The VSC Rating Board.
Many 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, and get more detail on the type of content in the game.
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.
