Video Game Charts by PEGI Age Rating – Week Ending September 29th
Each week at AskAboutGames we publish our own version of the latest UK video game sales charts, tailored for families. We do that to provide an at-a-glance guide the most popular titles suitable for the age of the gamers in your family.
Ultimately the lists below detail the three best selling games of each age rating category. How do we get to those lists? We go through the official charts, picking the top sellers of each PEGI age category, and then list them in the order they appeared in the full charts. The PEGI age ratings are the main rating system used in the UK. The UK PEGI certificates are given to games by a board of experts at The VSC Rating Board; we use their ratings to guide our groupings. So if you have, for example, a seven-year-old and a nine-year-old in your family, and you want a popular game for them to play, you could glance at the three-years-plus and seven-years-plus lists below, and ignore the older-age groupings.
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.
