NINTENDO  HELPS  GAMER!
I hope the ESRB hears about this...
According to the Entertainment Software Association, the average gamer is 37 years old. Kids born the day the original Nintendo was released are entering their late 20s, while geeks who whiled away the days with a Pong machine are storming past 40 (That would be my category!).  But compared to Umeji Narisawa, we're all just a bunch of babies.

Japanprobe caught up with the 99-year-old gamer, who got hooked on the hobby at the tender age of 73 when her grandkids brought home a copy of the action/puzzle classic Bomberman for the NES (technically the Famicon, the Japanese version of the system.) Narisawa was intrigued, gave it a shot, and has been playing it for several hours a day since.

Actually, I've seen  something like this several years ago in Meridian, Mississippi where I met this lady whose mother (not as elderly as Ms. Narisawa) played  Ms. Pac-Man on her Nintendo every other day and played very well, too!
