Keep in mind that a lot of games as well as video streaming use UDP-based application protocols.

Because transmit throttling is not built into UDP, the application must deal with it by reducing its transmit speed to a level which the link can support. Otherwise, if apps transmits UDP data at LAN speeds, a high percentage of packets will end up being dropped at the local VPN gateway.

I dont' know whether this will affect voice quality with VoIP software like Skype communicate over OpenVPN.
