    My uncle is in his early seventies, my friend's uncles are in their later seventies, not sure of the exact age though, but I don't think they were 79. :)

    I finally got my 89 year old grandmother to play Wii Sports Bowling... it was quite amusing.:p But she found it fun to play and she wasn't half bad either.

    My dad (70) and my mom (60) played Tennis, Bowling, and Boxing, and only stopped to control their laughing during a couple of hours. They had a blast playing it. It was priceless to watch.

    I think I'm the oldest (21) to play my cousin's so far. I don't think my grandmother has ever been interested in games, she doesn't even want a computer. I'm pretty sure my father prefers to just lounge on the couch and play that way.

    My 75 year old grandfather had a go at bowling and the shooting game in Wii play. It was quite amusing to see!

    At christmas my wife's grandmother (83) struggled to understand how to play a game of bowling and needed constant tuition to even get the ball to go down the lane. She was beaten badly and I felt a little sorry for her. She had one game before retiring saying she was perhaps too old.

    On New Years eve she was back and demanded a rematch. She said that what she needed to do had sunk in over the last couple of days. She bowled a 190+ game and beat all of us :D!

    Yup...it was christmas and he was just sitting in the park...This might be the only time my heart gets soft...he got like 100 bucks from us as well.

    Well we did beat him down and he seem to enjoy every moment of it...ever seen a drunk guy fight...it was so cool.
