    Google won't ban your site for focusing on another niche, your rankings might suffer a bit though.

    You will retain the authority the site has which may be able to rank for a few gaming keywords alone. Changing to gaming content + general authority will get you into the top 100 or so I'd guess.

    Registering this type of domain will cut out a lot of the time required to build up the "authority" aspect of a site but you aren't going to be slaying the gaming niche SERPs without anchor text optimized backlinks.

    Like he already said it won't hurt it will just help coz of the authority. But u need anchored links from the new niche to rank those gaming ones
    I do things like that almost with every domain

    You will still get the benefit of an "aged" site, and the trust (and some link juice) of those links.

    I always prefer making them at least somewhat similar - traveling gamers - going around the world on competition and enjoying nature in their free time - stuff like that.
