Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending October 27th
Are you looking for the most popular video games that are age-appropriate for your family?
Then you’ve found the right place. Here you can find our specially curated guide to the best selling games of the past week, grouped by their PEGI age-rating.
PEGI ratings are given to games in the UK by a group of experts at The VSC Rating Board. They pour through games before applying an age rating based on the content they find, granting either a 3-years-plus, 7-plus, 12-years-plus, 16-years-plus or 18-years-plus rating. Physical copies of games cannot be sold in the UK without a PEGI rating. Each week the AskAboutGames team pull apart the latest all formats game charts – which list the best selling games in the UK – before selecting the three highest ranking games from each age category, and gathering them below.
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.
