I don't know many over 65 that have a shy problem. I've been Minecraftin' with my grandsons for the last 6 years. They, of course, have jumped light years ahead. I'm still trying to master Minecraft 101. They are about 50/50 creative and survival. My preference is creative.

I guess it depends what you mean by granparent gamers..... because if parents had children at 18... a 40 year old could be a grandparent... I can imagine there being a few of those. But if you mean like, 75 year old really elderly kinds of people, most of them didn't grow up with the same kind of technology and they never got into gaming. Some of them I know barely know how to work phones. Which is a shame :( I personally think that when I'm 70, I'll still be gaming! :D

I registered just now and this is my first post. Its great to find other believers who also game.
I've been computer gaming since 1982 (when I was 28). Three of my grandchildren ( Nyasia 8, Arianna 12, and Kenneth 8 ) will be visiting in August - each for their very own week with Gramma and Grampa Dave. I know I will be spending plenty of time gaming with them.
