My son played Aveyond 3 when he was age 7-9 years old, but he has since moved onto console games Halo, Dark Souls, GTA now that he's 17. He really enjoyed it and got pretty good at it like me. Of course I had to help him soon initially. He tried Av 1, but he had trouble playing it knowing where to go next what to do, all the side quests. I have played that game so many times I know all the side quests by heart I have the walkthrough memorized. I still love it so much, always will. I absolutely love the story love Rhen she's my girl favorite Aveyond character. I love Mel too, but Rhen will always be my favorite. I did just fine with Ahriman's Prophecy of course the battles are a little different to get used to, but I was able to handle that too. But boy does your spacebar take a beating lol especially the end battle lol. It's fun though to get to meet Alicia, Devin, Talia and even Cinderella side quest so cool.
