Do any of your parents/grandparents play video games?

I know I'm going to be a gamer when I'm a grandpa, and will game until I die. That being said, do you have any elderly family members who are already gaming often? My mom used to game on the NES, but hasn't touched video games in years. Maybe you're an elderly person who games?

Nope, they were born during the war, and didn't really have much of a childhood. They're used to play board games at most. My mom is struggling to figure out how to use the iPad, but she loves FaceTime. If only she enjoyed something like Minecraft. haha

Your question is interesting because my father is about 80 year old and he is spending retired life at home. As he is not free after his retirement because he help the family entirely in domestic work. Beside this he gets the free time and plays three games: 1. Candy crush 2. Bubble shooter 3.Jewels Classic ;)

My parents hate video games, and always call me out on playing them because they'll "Rot your brain" or "Aren't you too old to play video games?", "Aren't they for kids", "Why not find something more productive to do" etc.

But yeah, I'll for sure grow up old and gaming until I die.

LOL I can't imagine my parents playing games. They are all in their 70's now so missed the gaming generation really.
