They say anything mentally stimulating is healthy for the elderly (crosswords, math/problem solving, etc.). I know Brain Age for DS was a pretty big hit among the older generations

The real test is using "mainstream" games, often these studies use independent games made by research groups and not games most gamers would get their hands on.

Studies and autopsies also have shown that the brain does not age like the body does. I know, because I am 70 and I play games. What kind of games you ask. Skyrim, Bioshock, The Witcher,Farecry3 ect.
