Here is this weeks tip…

“PEGI Ratings – Age ratings ensure that entertainment content – such as films, DVDs, and games are clearly labelled for the minimum age group for which it is suitable. The PEGI rating on a game confirms that it contains content suitable for a certain age group and above.  So a 7-rated game is suitable for everyone who is seven or older, while an 18-rated game is deemed suitable for adults only. It is not, a measure of who will enjoy the game or how difficult that game is.”
