AskAboutGames On The Road: BBC Healthy Gaming Advice

We were invited to talk about healthy video games on BBC Radio recently. The topic on the table was how to get the most from video games for your family.

We discussed the steps you can take to ensure things are safe. Why playing games together as a family is a good idea and how playing games in shared family spaces can also increase the fun to be had.

Other topics that came up included questions about finding games with appropriate content. How to move from just saying no to offering guidance on how to find games they will love.

We finished off by talking through the PEGI ratings to explain how they work and help guide parents.
