I was watching a report on tv earlier about an 83 year old lady playing PS games,

"It is predicted that by the end of this year, female gamers will outnumber men for the first time." BBC

Do you play, and if so what type of game, do you feel it's a 'waste of time' or that it's keeping your brain, hand eye co-ordination working?

EDIT sorry edited title lol, it read a bit 'off topic'.

I play FB games, bejewelled etc, but I play against other people on wordz on ipad and sadly play algebra games too. I'll play scrabble and any lexicon ganes.

I have a couple of mystery solving ganes like Myst and Riven on ipad too. Oh and of course the dreaded angry birds.

I really coveted her TV.

Own a DS and play 'mind' games. Do not like the shoot 'em up type games.

So I play cards, tetris, scrabble and similar type games.

Have own a DS and still have an original Gameboy upstairs somewhere along with a Sinclair Spectrum.

I am 59.

I play a few Facebook games when I have nothing else to do.

Pet Society
Gardens of Time

We are also board game addicts and play all the Ticket to Ride and other Games of Wonder games.

Ah, the joys of part time work and retirement.

I'm 66, have a ds xl (screen is a bit bigger than normal one) and love playing all the games especially card games. My hubbie had one for xmas this year and he is 72. I think it keeps your mind alert. Thats my excuse anyway. I also love some of the games on f/book. :-D :-D :-D
