"While the typical assumption is that video games are for children, it's becoming more and more obvious over the years that this simply isn't the case. There are games for a younger audience, that's for sure, but with the average age of gamers being 35 years old (according to the Entertainment Software Association) and Mature games outselling all others, the stigma of "games are for kids" is losing steam. Strangely enough, it appears as though many within the industry are ignoring that fact, especially retailers and console makers. Proof is in the AO rating, which is still a death note for games.
