As gaming is not just restricted to consoles with children and young people accessing games on smartphones and tablets and also through social networking sites, it is important to keep an eye on the age ratings of all games.
Every computer game is given an age rating based on the content of the game. For primary age children, games rated PEGI 3 and PEGI 7 are suitable in terms of game play content.
