Is Marvel Spiderman PS4 game really a PEGI 16 and is it safe for a 16yr old kid?

Posted 4th Sep 2020
This game was rated PEGI 16 for frequent scenes of moderate violence as per the reviewers. Does this mean it's bad for a 16 year old? Any views on this please?

    Absolutely fine. I don't recall any major violent parts in this game at all...

    You kidding? I’d regularly play and watch 18 cert films/games when I was 10, probably younger.

    The level of violence is always going to be comparable to a Marvel movie. It would be suicidal to make a Spiderman game that isn't suitable for anyone who's watched the films.

    Not a big fan of PEGI's ratings, they're dubious, overly strict and don't have the open-ness that the BBFC do.

    The PEGI 16 age rating confirms that the game is appropriate for players of 16.

    PEGI considers the age suitability of a game and they stated they believe it is suitable for a 16 year old so yes they should be able to handle it.


    You may find this guide helpful were both parents and kids give their opinion on the game and agree it is suitable for 11 plus

    Can't tell whether you're asking what a 16 rating means, or whether you're asking for opinions on whether it's "really" suitable for a 16 year old. If it's the former, then it means it's suitable for ages 16 and above.

    If the latter, It's not GTA type violence. Its not bloody, gory violence.

    A 16 year old can "handle it". It's no more violent than movies of the same type (Marvel). It's probably less violent.

    16 is not that young. Give them more credit. They're young adults. They're not buffoons. It's old enough to leave School. They're pretty astute. If you're worried about what amounts to little more than cartoonesque violence, you'd be horrified about the playground.

    A lot of them could probably run rings round most people on here. I have feeling that if you're having to ask such a daft question, a lot of them could run rings around you too.

    I don't remember any overly violent parts or nudity in it? I am surprised it is a 16. Sure it has a lot of fighting in it but not any more violent than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that we used to play in the arcades when we were kids?

    My 16 year old daughter has just made a start on Ghost of Tsushima, I have no issues with that. She's also made her way through the Game of Thrones box set with my wife. On the other hand we don't like our 8 year old son accidentally watching Big Bang Theory or Brooklyn 99 when we're watching an episode.

    I like how games (and TV/films) are rated and I do find them useful, but in the end it's your child and only you can make the call whether it's suitable.

    The main reason I guess was his first question about it when he did catch an episode... 'daddy, what's coitus?'...

    ah yes of course, that makes sense

    And I assume Brooklyn Nine-Nine for similar reasons, but even more risqué

    Just make sure you don’t forget to let them breathe. And have the confidence to trust their intellect, especially at that age.

    My son played this and he's 5 - There's probably 1 scene in the entire game I thought wasn't appropriate for his age but we talked through it.
