The 99 Year old gamer

I love when people only consider video gaming to be a kids hobby, well tell that to 99 year old Umeji Narisawa.  She started playing on the NES at the young age of 73 and still continues to play on it. Her favorite game happens to be Bomberman and she credits it to keeping her mind and fingers strong as she still like to sew.  I can only hope that I am still gaming at the ripe age of 99.

I would like to say that I came out of the womb with a controller in hand, but it wasn't until the age of 3 that I would receive my first console, the Atari 2600. From that moment on, games have not only a hobby of mine but a passion as well. Owning the majority of gaming platforms out there, I try to play as many different types of games that I can.
