What we are doing to support the SID 2022 theme of "Together for a better internet"...
We recommend parents, caregivers, and educators follow these tips to manage responsible gameplay
Check the game’s PEGI rating and use parental controls
The regularly updated PEGI age rating and content descriptors are best-in-class examples of co- and self-regulation that enable measures for the protection of minors to keep up with the fast-moving industry and game innovations.
All video games consoles, handheld devices, and PC and Mac operating systems include parental control systems, and there are additional apps available to help parents manage online interaction, playtime, spending, and access to age-appropriate video games. See relevant links below.
Play games with your children and start a conversation
In an ever-evolving digital environment, it is crucial that parents talk to their children and take an interest in their online activities. The video games industry actively encourages this because we know from research that families who play together and/or take the time to discuss video gameplay with their children have the fewest arguments and reap the greatest benefits from play.
Be fully informed in your language
Please take a look at the many easy-to-use resources provided by national video games trade associations and their partners around Europe for information in your language on how to manage responsible gameplay, as well as for tips and guidance on which games to play with your family and information on the most popular video games.
ISFE represents the video games industry in Europe and is based in Brussels, Belgium. Our membership comprises national trade associations in 18 countries across Europe which represent in turn thousands of developers and publishers at national level. ISFE also has as direct members the leading European and international video game companies.
