Question 20

Are the existing classification categories understood in the community? Which classification categories, if any, cause confusion? 

The clusters of respone to this question indicate that existing classification categories were considered to be well understood in the  community. The main concern raised was the lack of an R18+ classification for games, and the confusion that raised about what games are suitable for adults but not for children. One issue raised was lack of clarity between the ‘M’ and ‘MA15+’ classification categories (bottom left of infograph). Another was the absence of clear age-based criteria around the ‘PG’ category, again shown at the bottom left of the infograph.
