Video game ratings in the UK have been a big topic recently after UK officials attempted to ban the game manhunt 2 and ultimately failed to do so. A survey recently conducted by the European Commission has shown that the Pan European Game Information (Pegi) implementation in member states is lacking.

According to the survey 20 states currently use the Pegi system and back up its recommendations on who should be allowed to play certain games. According to the survey only Germany and Lithuania have laws to govern how games are sold.

The survey also reports that Cyprus, Luxembourg, Romania and Slovenia have no laws on the sale of video games. The survey results in a call on member states to integrate the Pegi ratings into national systems and to provide funds to raise awareness of potentially inappropriate video games.
