Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending August 25th
This week’s data is finally in, meaning we’re here to share our specially curated version of the UK games sales charts, designed to help you pick to most popular age-appropriate games for your family.
Choosing games – or even understanding which exact games youngsters in your family are keen to play – is a tricky business when there are so many. Many games will be perfect for your everyone in your family, but that doesn’t mean all of them will be suitable. Recognising that challenge, the AskAboutGames team go through the latest all formats video game charts each week (though there have been some problems with securing the data these past two weeks). With that done, we select the three best-selling games under each PEGI age-rating category and share them below. 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.
