Old people game? Unlikely

1:26 AM on 04.05.2007 // Zephyr

It's all over this dammed Interblogweb device that one in seven people over the age of a hundred have played video games. Apparently this is exciting news, but let's face it, it's really not, for two reasons:

One: Video games have been around since prehistory. Sega controllers were used to carve pictures of antelope into cave walls back in the days where people were still chewing hides to make them soft and supple for wearing.

Two: These people are OVER A HUNDRED YEARS OLD. They probably think that a video game is where you toss horse shoes at a stick in the ground, or was what happened when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. No study done involving people who have yet to gain, or have lost the ability to control their bodily functions to a reasonable level should ever be taken as valid. Not that I have anything against old people whatsoever, they're aweseome, and you can pick them off with a sniper rifle in the GTA series.
