Contrary to popular belief, video gaming is a growing hobby enjoyed by every demographic in our society; men and women, young and old. To illustrate this point, the BBC has done a wonderful video interview with Hilda Knott, an 85-year-old gamer who will be turning 86 next month. During the interview Knott explains why she still loves to play video games: “Finding something new in the game. Getting on to the next stage or the next event, and then having the achievement of finishing it. Because a lot of them, as well as adventures and fighting, are puzzles, working out how to do something and when to do it.” (via Meet the 85-year-old lady who plays Grand Theft Auto IV on a PlayStation 3 and 65″ TV - The Next Web)
