The future of video games is going to be an interesting thing to see play out. As the medium gets older, so will its audience, and I'm certain we will get to the point where it's not rare for retirees to be playing away on video games.
Well, it seems that might not even be too far into the future. Here is Shirley Curry, a 79 year old who has started a Let's Play series for Skyrim. It's lovely, and it's pretty awesome seeing someone her age be so fascinated in the moment to moment play.
Take a look at the first episode here, which has nearly gotten half a million views so far! I hope to see more in the future.
Thanks for the heads up Destructoid!
