Chat: Do you have gaming grandparents?
- 24 January 2013
An 85-year-old pensioner says she loves playing video games with her aunt who is 94!
Hilda Knott has been playing video games for 40 years, but says she still loves all the latest releases.
The gaming granny said: "I enjoy finding something new. I also like having the achievement of finishing the game."
Do you play video games with older relatives?
Do you enjoy playing against your parents, grandparents or even great-grandparents? How different is it to playing on your own or with your mates?
