Jack Davis, 86-year-old resident of the Hearth & Home assisted living community in Vandalia, Ohio, can beat you at video games. Specifically, Davis can be considered a legend at Wii Sports Bowling, a game he can boast 40 perfect games in.
I could totally bowl a bunch of perfect games if that's all I did every day.
Yeah I'm sure you could, but your not 86 are you. Frankly, if I reach that age, I'll be happy if I know what the hells going on, let alone own on a game.
Perfectly said. I was joking, of course. I've played Wii Sports a ton, and I've never gotten a single perfect game that I can remember.
@FishFingers Best comment ever. Hahaha That is so true, you almost can't just look at these seemingly amazing stats on its face value, you have to consider the fact he is 86-years-old too. Just imagine if this guy was in his 20's or 30's, bowling prime.
Great reply Fishy, bubs for you.
I remember hearing of some friend's mom's bowing perfect games when it first game out, and I was shocked. Anyone here get perfect games, and if so, how many?
There you go more proof that moton control is needed. Thses guys in the photo don't play God of War nor Halo. But they sure seem to be gaming and having fun.
I'm pretty sure I haven't gotten even one perfect game. But that's where this comes in:
Natal say's high granny grandpa.
STFU Muppet not only are you jealous of the PS3 your jealous of an 86yr old man.. pathetic tool
So this is what you do when you are retired. Good thing because at this rate I won't be able to retire til I am 75+ anyways...
Certainly is a lot cheaper than paying to bowl 4000+ real rounds.
Sorry, this is supposed to be in response to #2. Whenever I visit my parents, Pops and I bust out Wii-Sports or Tiger Woods and we're always trying to outdo one another. A few months ago, I was one strike away from a perfect game. So, naturally I wanted to gloat... I paused the game and yelled for my dad to "Come behold my miracle!" Well, I choked... finished with a damn 299.... garbage. The moral is, like real bowling, pool, darts, etc; it's all about being in your groove. If you bowl 29 consecutive strikes, you're in your groove. Don't break that groove just to show off... F'ing 299... I haven't played Wii-Sports since... that's right, I rage quit Wii-Sports. Maybe someday I'll try again.
what the hell do grandpas and grandmas playing Wii have to do with "Natal"?
I think he's talking about motion controls in general. You're still right, doesn't have much to do with it.
Fair play to him, at least he can get it up. The wiimote that is.
Great, you're the MAN, well the Grandpa...
The GRANDman? Maybe? Anyone? No?
YOU RULE LOL!!! :D
I think getting a perfect score is pretty difficult in Wii Sports bowling. We all know that if it were just buttons, we could dial it up to be perfect almost every time. But motion controls aren't that precise. So it takes a lot of practice to get that precision down, which gramps here seems to be doing good at.
I wonder how much bowling would change if they used MotionPlus?
They have MotionPlus Bowling in Wii Sports Resort. It's certainly hard to master.
Good on him. I want to still be gaming when I'm his age (If i get that age) lol.
As much as nintendo fans hate to admit. The wii is mostly for people that haven't really considered gaming before as a hobby, specifically very young children and old people. Its not a bad thing at all. In fact i take off my hat to nintendo for reinventing themselves. Despite what haters say. Wii is good for the industry. Hardcore fans like me has nothing to worry about. I knew the wii was something else when my sister that i used to game with when we were little pick up using the wii in 30 mins which is something she couldn't do since the SNES era because she said games were to complex by then.
That's one hardcore dude.;) No, but seriously... wow, that's quite a feat.
Very impressive. He must have worked out a rhythm that just almost always works for him. Sometimes I feel like I'm into a rhythm like that with Wii Bowling, but then I inevitably find myself losing control of my spin, like what used to work doesn't work anymore. I think I over-think my swing and cause that to happen. I'll have like 3 games in a row where I bowl over 200, and then 3 games where I barely hit 130. Haha. My all-time high is about 230, I forget the actual score, but it's aroud there. I've had a ton of 200+ games, but never anywhere near a perfect 300.
WOW, I can't even get a prefect game in High Velocity Bowling on the PS3. The most I ever got was 8 strikes in a row. I wonder which one is harder to bowl on the Wii, or the PS3. I know I can bearly get 2 stirkes in a real game of bowling.
Few buddies of mine do a Wii night where Yagerbombs and 32 packs are involved. On one of these nights I bowled my first 300 WiiBowling game, it was a paparazzi moment with everyone taking pictures. On topic, I would not challenge that feat because that could be achieved by any skilled Wii player. Congrats none the less. @GodsHand- its all about angling your shot and how much force you are releasing the ball.
Two things: 1) I can't imagine a drunken 86 year-old getting a perfect score in Wii Sports bowling. 2) Are you "the best in the world at what you do?" I dig the pic.
That old man has the waggle DOWN. Played wii bowling a million times and still have yet to get a perfect game... of course i'm usually drunk and in a room full of people... that might have something to do with it.
i wish i have a grandpa like that...
