Gamer Grandpas Play Fortnite

This is a great story, “Meet The Gamer Grandpas: The Seniors Who Spend Retirement Playing ‘Fortnite'”. It talks about some of the games retirees are spending their time playing. They play a variety of games including Fortnite, Skyrim, and of course Call of Duty.

Six years later, David is as well-versed in gaming as anyone. He even tried his hand at Gen Z’s game of choice, Fortnite, for a few months, but gave up when he realized he “could never devote enough time to it to become good enough to beat the kids and pros I was playing against.”
“I usually play on weekend afternoons if there’s nothing else going on in my house, which is often,” he explains. “If I’m really into a game, I’ll play during weekdays as well.” And while Star Wars: The Old Republic is still his favorite — “It’s like comfort food; I’ve played all factions, characters and expansions, sometimes several times” — he also enjoys trying new games (e.g., World of Warcraft, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt).
