There are no laws in this country governing the games people play in their own home, rather legislation looks to restrict the access of minors to higher-rated material.
Even then, it rather depends where in the world you live. In the UK we have two ratings systems. PEGI - the pan-European system - is much more widespread but not yet enforceable by law. BBFC ratings on games are somewhat less common these days, but are still legally enforceable, resulting in fines for retailers if there's proof of selling 15/18 rated games to those under age. There were rumblings of plans to have PEGI replace the system entirely, with legislation slated to pass later this year.
