    85-year old lady addicted to her Ps3

    Meet the85-Year-Old Who's Addicted to PlayStation 3

    Posted Mon, 21 Jan 2013 | 13:15 GMT by Sammy Barker

    Old school

    While most pensioners keep their minds active with Sudoku and Countdown, Hilda Knott is a touch more adventurous. The 85-year-old is a keen PlayStation 3 gamer, with an enormous library spanning mainstream favourites such as Grand Theft Auto IV and more hardcore hits like Disgaea 4: A Promise Forgotten. She’s even a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

    Knott has been playing video games for over 40 years, but she still gets plenty of pleasure out of finding new things in her favourite titles. “I enjoy getting to the next stage or the next event,” she told BBC News. “I also like having the achievement of finishing the game.”

    Asked whether she thought playing video games kept her mentally active, Knott added: “Definitely, yes. A lot of [games feature] puzzles where you have to work out how to do something and when to do it.”

    The technologically proficient pensioner also enjoys playing games on her iPad, making her officially more hip than us. You can catch the full report through here. Areany of your grandparents keen gamers? Let us know in the comments section below

    Just seen this on the news and she was playing GTA IV

    So cool to see this and a Market that Nintendo started back with Wii, as certainly opened up for all and the cake will be sliced among them

    Hahah that's awesome , instead of knitting a sweater or something she's jacking people's cars or causing a massacre with a tank in grand theft auto.

    Doesn't get any sweeter than that!

    I wonder what other games she plays

    That's pretty cool, also like how she plays on an ipad. Good to see older people accept new technologies.

    Since Nintendo as i said, opened the market for odier people to play games... This means new games and new tech that all can use over time and make it cheaper

    My Grandma use to play the wii with me. She use to kick my a$$ in tennis.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    You know they say that keeping your mind busy and occupied at that age is good for you.

    So I think I'll be playing PS50/Xbox 1080 when the time comes.

    the mind is an amazing engine and as long as you keep it busy always and it can be via gaming like we all do or through memory style things every day

    You can have a healthy mind always and develop skills you never had

    And this lady and others, could actually wipe the floor with us when it comes to gaming in some cases

    Sounds a hell of a lot better than waiting around, staring at the wall and waiting to die.
