What PS4 games are appropriate for children?

Determining which games are appropriate for children is the responsibility of parents and guardians. However, there is a guideline thanks to the Entertainment Software Review Board (ESRB) and the official ratings it provides. Every PlayStation game that's released is given a recommended age-of-play rating based on its content and gameplay. This is the equivalent of the ratings issued to films. A game's rating can be found on the lower right-hand corner of its packaging.

The basic video game ratings issued by ESRB are E for Everyone (recommended for play by individuals over the age of 6), Everyone 10-and-Up, T for Teen, and M for Mature (recommended for play by individuals over the age of 17).
