    Gaming Gaps


    Hi as a long time gamer. I would like to hear your stories about difficulties you have had examining gaming to an older audience. With Gaming being used as a tool to help combat mental illness it may be more important now to help our elders get into gaming
    as a leisure activity. What have been your struggles?

    :)

    Even just trying to teach my dad how to control a FPS game was hard. He couldn't get the hang of how left stick moves the character and right stick looks around, he kept going from looking up to the ceiling to down at the floor while spinning around. This
    was one of the longest 4 hours of my life.

    I tried to teach my grandma once how to play crash bandicoot but she didnt understand why a bandicoot was able to spin so fast it could make humans fly off

    Well, I have a relative who I keep bugging to try playing videogames because she is afraid of having Alzheimer like a great grandmother had. I have read that because of the required focus and constant change of the level attention, gaming is a good way
    to keep the mind active. She does read a lot, so I guess that also works for her.

    Older Audience gaming was the cornerstone of the rise of the Nintendo Wii. It gave adults an outlet with family friendly games and the ability to now move around with some mental and physical exercise. No one ever thought retirement homes would ever want
    or need consoles until the kids of the Atari 2600 generation (like me) got to their 60s a few decades from now.

    I feel it helps you being engaged and it helps older generation.

    My parents find video games amazing and my mother thinks I watching a movie because she can't believe the way make games.

    This a interesting topic.

    I always believe that gaming is entertainment just film and TV.
