This is incredible how sprightly she is at her age, http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/video/news/4099289/Meet-worlds-oldest-gamer.html

Good old Nintendo.

I am 59 and as I am practically housebound I spend a good portion of my days playing games mainly FPS's but I have also logged over 800 hours on user generated maps on Portal 2. I have completed Borderlands 2 and now are trying to discover every area and complete every quest.

I have in the region of 120 games on my PC and regularly play around 30 of them.

Sad I know but I could add this is the first real pastime/hobby I have ever had that and building/repairing PC's.

What's sad about it? It's a great hobby especially if housebound. It keeps you mentally fit but it must be time consuming. I'm not very good at games so that doesn't say much about me :(

These modern games have left me behind but I did handle the old PS1 games quite well.

Then definitely have a look at Portal 1 and 2 on Steam. Puzzle solving which is not usually my thing but these games are great especially 2.

I have created an account with steam just to try out Black Meza. A freebie of course. Got as far as the area with the red lasers in the room but kept being killed. My interest then faded. I sometimes download demos from Gamer's Hell just to see how the graphics are improving in these games. Can't even finish some of them so I'm a lost cause I think.

I`m only a mere pup at 52 , Love playing Crysis 2 , but total rubbish at multiplayer ! Got about 15 games on PC at the moment . Almost finished Crysis 2 and StarCraft 2 , Going to have a crack at Dishonored next I think . I play all my games in 3D .

nickf 51 here. Not long finished Dishonored,and cam honestly say it was one of the best games i've ever played. 3D? Is that on a 3D TV or on a PC? As i've played a few in stereoscopic 3D on PC. Batman Arkham asylum was one. Finished Far cry 3, and am now playing Hitman absolution and The walking dead.

I found Skyrim incredibly boring unfortunately one of the few games I have only played once. I found it very annoying that you had to grind your way to get decent weapons and combat seem to be find entrance fight your way through tunnel fight boss,rinse and repeat. Fallout 3 I did enjoy though towards the end of the DLC I was getting a little tired of it.

Agree about Dishonoured,fantastic game. The first DLC has been a bit of a disappointment though.

Crysis 2, great game especially the second time around. Far cry 3 I am struggling with, just cannot get into it at all.I hope it is not another Max Payne 3 which I did not finish.
