Video Games Parents Googled in February 2021
Author: Andy Robertson
This week we saw searches including "Is Valheim okay for kids", "Adopt Me parents guide", "Rust age rating", "Adopt Me PEGI rating", and "What age players Rogue Company". These searches brought the parent or carer to our pages where, hopefully, they found the information they needed.
The games bubbling up in this list usually come from children watching people online play the games on services like Twitch or YouTube and then asking parents if they can get them too. They also appear here when games have become popular because their friends have been playing them.
Top Googled Games This MonthIt's a good idea to see if your children have heard of these games. Not only might it spark some interesting conversation about video game ratings, but it's also a good way to find appropriate games to play together.
Find Age Appropriate GamesIf these games are rated too old for the age of your children, you can click on the entries above and scroll down to find similar experiences ordered by age rating. Also, because we have been tracking the most popular games over a longer period, the following list offers some good suggestions. They are games that have remained of interest for families over some time.
If you want more game suggestions you can browse the Lists of games or use the Search to pick the age, system and cost of a game that would suit your family. We also keep an up to the minute report of the most Popular games on the site.
