Is a Game Ever Below Your Age Range?

'This is an important point to make; there are good games and bad games in any area of gaming and kids’ games are no different. So what do the good children’s games have to offer us' writes David Howe.

There isn't an age limit, but I believe there is a crap-ness limit. For example, Barbie games can only be for little children and no one else.

Never. Buddy of mine always rags on me for playing games like Rayman origins and super mario galaxy 2 among others, i just think what he is missing out on playing the millionth generic fps.

Skylanders is something i will never get into

However I'll still play Yu Gi Oh games. I know they're aimed at primary school kids, but still find them fun.

Yu Gi Oh? Go to an official tournament, it's filled with grown up men.

Media market Yu Gi Oh as a children's card game (mainly because of the anime that was aimed at kids, much like the Pokemon), but Yu Gi Oh it's as competitive (or even more) than Magic The Gathering and other card games. Yu Gi Oh is even in the Guinness for being the best selling trade card game in the world.

On topic, I think everyone plays whatever they want, being it a child game, a shooter or some casual sholvelware.

Just because grown up men play it, doesnt mean its not a kids game buddy!

Im grown up and I play it, but id be stuffed if i would be bragging about it at the pub. I'd get asked for ID and probably laughed out of the place.

Sorry but there is for me. No matter how good super mario galaxy or lbp are, I just can't get into them cause there content is to little kiddy. Im in my twenties now and I need my entertainment, movies or games to be at least a little mature. Maybe thats just a sign I shouldn't be playing video games anymore.

Blood and guns =/= mature.

In fact most of them are immature

Smartest thing anyone has ever said on N4G.

YoungKingDoran3288d ago

of course...
the two common things that will make a game rated higher is violence (blood) and swearing.
im not a square and enjoy those things, but they are two things alot of games dont require to be fun.
only fools wouldnt play a G or PG game on that merit alone.
Enjoy COD, chumps
