Does playing video games make you a happier person? If you are a senior age 63 or older, the answer is probably yes, according to a new study released by North Carolina State University.
Lots of gamers bemoaned the Senior invasion on their pass time- BUT I thought it was Great. I hope that their continues to be games developed that senior citizens and all ages can enjoy. I am glad gaming makes them smile. I also hope WiiU Sports is one of those titles. The more people in this Gaming-Ship the more money will be flowing in the Industry for More INNOVATIONS or/and just keeping Console Gaming Healthy.
Gaming can make a person feel young again lol, If I was 80 crippled in my wheel chair and you gave me bioshock to play then I would not even care about my old age because I will be using plasmids.
I don't think I will ever play video games at this age. I won't play video games after 60.
Not only does it make them smile. It's been proven to help brain activity and hand eye coordination. The American government spends $1.2 million a year for such research. which i think is great. For both the gaming community and the elderly. To bad republicans are demonizing the research. I think they honestly would sell out there own mother for there political gains. Sad. http://www.politifact.com/v...
ill be a happy senior playing games one day.
As much as the "younger" generation wants to hate on the "old" people for playing video games, I think this is actually pretty damn cool.
Playing games is good for the elderly. It keeps their minds off their impending doom.
Anything that takes your mind off the dull reality of life will do that.
Anything that exercises the brain is especially good for the elderly.
