Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending December 9th
Game charts can often quieten down as Christmas nears, as the most mainstream titles enjoy shopper’s attention, while releases with less marketing budget avoid clashing with the likes of festive favourites like Call of Duty.
That had been the case in recent weeks, but – although Call of Duty: WWII is still the overall best seller of the previous seven days – there’s plenty of change all of a sudden. For starters, PlayStation VR Worlds’ return (again) points to a good number of PlayStation VR headsets being bought for Christmas; the game being bundled with the hardware.
Christmas 2017 might well be won by Nintendo, however, with Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda: Breath of the Wind and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe each taking a high place chart spot.
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.
