Pan European Game Information (PEGI for short) is a European video game classification organization developed by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe. This rating system is in use in most European countries. In the United Kingdom, the BBFC rates games that would normally get a PEGI 16 or 18 rating. PEGI ratings may also be found on French language games in other places than Europe, specifically Canada.
PEGI self-regulation is composed by five age categories and eight content descriptors that advise the suitability and content of a game for a certain age range based on the games content. The age rating does not indicate the difficulty of the game or the skill required to play it.
