Born before the world's
first television station aired but today, Hilda Knott, who will celebrate her 86th birthday next month,
loves to play a range of PS3 games on her 65-inch HDTV.
You might wonder what would be more surprising
than an octogenarian enjoying the delights of modern triple-A video
games? Well, perhaps the fact that she also plays them with her aunt – a bright young thing at 94. "We have an hilarious time!",
Hilda told the BBC.
Despite having played games for more than
forty years – far longer than most, Hilda enjoys games for what they
are at their core. "I enjoy finding something new in the
game, getting onto the next stage or the next event – and then the achievement
of finishing it," she said.
