    Well I feel better. He's old enough to be my father and I play COD! Ha! Ain't going to make me grow up!

    Not only is it always great to see older folks connecting with something generally considered of the younger generation, I think there's growing evidence to support the idea that mind-stimulating activities–reading, music both listening and playing, and even video games–might play a part in preventing Alzheimer's.

    Game on, granddad.

    This is great! I wish my dad, in his 70s would do this. He's just sitting around being grumpy as hell, drinking and waiting to die….he should at least do something. This guy is still alive and it's awesome to see!

  • Canucks_Rule

    are we sure he wasn't having a stroke?

  • JustMe

    To be honest i don't care what he plays next, as long as he keeps playing. Best vid i've watched in a long time. Enjoy life F everything else.

    I make the same sounds during sex.

  • @AetherMcLoud

    We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.

  • Pants

    Is he having fun or having a seizure?

  • Izabye

    I am jealous. Both my grandfathers were complete cranky old assholes. I wish he was my Grandpa. He is definitely winner of the "Most Awesome Grandpa Ever" award. This just made my day.

    My father and I play video games together quite often. He will be 74 next month.
    We also hunt, fish, hike and go camping together several times per year.
    He was never given the opportunity to do these things with his father as the old man was just an old grouch.

    I am happy having the opportunity of spending a large amount of quality time with him.
