The community of senior video-game players is growing, as many have proven that engaging in games helped in motivating them to stay physically and mentally fit.

Moreso now that a number of senior citizens have become popular across gaming communities and in video-streaming channels like YouTube, where they are called Gaming Grandma or Gaming Grandpa.

90-Year Old Japanese Lady Officially Listed as Oldest Video Gaming YouTuber
In Guinness World Records

The most recent Gaming Grandma to have achieved a level of stardom is a nonagenarian who lives in Japan and goes by the name of Hamako Mori. The Guiness Book of World Records has officially listed Grandma Mori as the “Oldest Video Game YouTuber,” since the 90-year old Japanese lady is quite active not only in playing video games but also in uploading clips of her video games at YouTube.

According to Grand Lady Mori, Grand Theft Auto is one of her favorites but her “Dauntless” games have earned as many as 3 million YouTube viewers. Grandma Mori admits to having played video games since she was 39 years old. At her current age and with the feats she achieved as a gamer, including the Guinness World Record, she commented:

“Now more than ever, I feel that playing video games for this long was a right choice because I am genuinely enjoying my life.”

 

Helping Senior Gaming Citizens Gain Confidence and Cope with Frustrations

A potential barrier in getting senior citizens to become more involved in video gaming are the toxic behaviors experienced by many video game players; especially in competitive esports titles. Even the younger generation of newbies and those who do not exhibit gaming skills considered as acceptable by popular standards, are the most common recipients of toxic behaviors. Harassments and profanities tend to push less skilled players out of a match, forcing them to leave a game as it no longer brings feelings of enjoyment.

 

Apparently, senior citizens who have stayed on, have learned to take toxic behaviors in stride, Perhaps years of experience in dealing with toxic people in different environments enabled them to feel less affected. After all, most boomers have repeatedly heard the adage “Sticks and stones could break my bones, but words alone will not harm me,” when needing to deal with toxic coworkers in their younger years.

Zaros, a rank-boosting group can help video gamers build confidence by providing them with highly-ranked video game players to act as their level boosters. At the same time boosters can give mentoring while playing games on a client’s behalf. At Zaros, clients are not only provided with updates on the progress achieved by boosters, they can also view while their designated booster is currently engaged in game matches using their respective game account.

That way, video game players have actual and real-time demonstrations on how to react in certain scenarios, as well as have clear examples on how to optimize their weapons and/or protective gadgets. The Zaros website also has a Member’s Area, which clients can use in communicating with their account-booster. The group of boosters have the capability to tone down their gaming skills in ways commensurate to the rank level of the Zaros client.

Senior citizens looking forward to become part of “Valorant” once Riot Games releases in the summer of 2020, and who, at the same time, interested in engaging the services of a Zaros booster, can join the community by registering as member at https://zarosboosting.com/valorant-boosting.
