Game Grid 4

age appropriate gaming

While we recommend E-Sports for ages 8 and up, we use gaming certification to restrict what games are available to players at log in. 

For example, if you are aged between 13-14,  games certified for ages 15+ won't be visible to you.

Games List and Classifications:

Games with the classification ‘Unknown’ have no age classification information in the New Zealand database, and no age restrictions in the Australian database. 

'Unknown' games are not age gated and may be played by any players. Parental discretion is still advised for minors even where there are no restrictions,  especially for games with combat play.
