My Recommended Age ratings explained:


My detailed age rating:

You will see the above format on the upper part of every of review page that has been recommended age of 10 under. This expands on my overall recommended age button in the upper right, and gives you more detail—you can roll over each category, then click to display a box underneath, giving a full explanation. More info below:


Content-wise:
This tells you what age the game's overall content is approriate for, meaning even if the difficulty gets a higher rating, a younger age group could still play elements of the game—just expect to help them with it.


Difficulty-wise:
This means the difficulty in the game is suited best to the age group I recommend, as this age group is most equipped to complete that game control and complexity-wise.


Fun for:
If it says "Kids" it means the game is only appealing to kids; parents and adults won't get much out of playing it. If it says "Kids & Adults" it means kids and adults will enjoy most and/or all aspects of the game equally.


Overall age recommendations:

The round recommended age button pictured in the upper part of this page, gives you a quick glance regarding what I think the game is suited for age-wise, and will be the only age rating present for any game I rate 13+ (each of the buttons are linked to this page, so click on them for fast reference to this page). More info below:


Ages 13+:
This means content and difficulty-wise I think it's appropriate for ages 13+. However, sometimes I may approve it for ages 10+, for certain gameplay elements, so be sure to check "Content sum up" box at the top of each review page (or the last paragraph in the "Violence or Intense Violence" category) for clarification.


Ages 14+:
This means content and difficulty-wise I think it's only appropriate for ages 14+, and I'll most often not recommend it for a younger age group—but still be sure to check the "Content sum up" box at the top of each review page (or the last paragraph in the "Violence or Intense Violence" category) for clarification.


Ages 17+:
This means content and difficulty-wise I think it's only appropriate for ages 17+, and I'll almost never recommend it for a younger age group—but check "Content sum up" box at the top of each review page (or the last paragraph in the "Violence or Intense Violence" category) for clarification.
