Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending October 20th
Picking games that are suitable for your family can prove a difficult business. There are a lot of games out there, and so much information, it can be hard to zero in on the basics. And as the winter evenings draw in, screen time might become increasingly important to your family; as long as the role games play is positive and appropriate.
Lots of games will be ideal for your everyone in your family, but that doesn’t mean all of them will be. 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.
