With games getting more challenging, and there are not many out there that consist of pure fun, Do you think there is an age limit to gaming ? What age do you think that be ?

No, there isn't.

Next question: Is there an age limit on eating sandwiches?

Games getting more challenging....lol (so wish we had emotes) Games are a joke challenge wise compared to when I was a kid. You are too old when you can no longer pick up and hold a controller.

What do you mean ? Back in the day my parents i'm sure can play PacMan, or Donkey Kong, or Popeye. These days there is no way they can play Halo, or Call of Duty ? Ya know what i mean ..

Nope, don't let society tell you what to do and think!

Are you referring to the age of the sandwich itself, or the age of the person eating it? There are very different answers here.

Let me know when you can beat the old Ninja Gaiden games, old Contra games, and old Megaman games as easy as you can games like CoD or Halo. I find it sad that you think of games like CoD and Halo as hard.

How would such an age limit even be enforced?

According to system wars, only if the video game has colors.

Yes, 14.

When you can shoot torpedoes in the Silent Hunter series of games (except 5) using manual targeting (meaning finding the firing solution yourself), then you can say that games are not challenging. Doing so requires the use of trigonometry. I do not see many youngens playing said series of games and while active on the Ubi forums way back when, the average age of those who played said games was pushing 40+.

Another game that tends to draw an older crowd is MS Flight Simulator due to the fact that it attracts many pilots as well as those who have more disposable income than kids who rely on parents to buy the games that are wanted. Such people tend to follow the procedures to start an aircraft from cold and dark then fly following ATC procedures as well as creating proper flight plans, something that kids who just want to play CoD do not want to do.
