66 Years Old and Still Gaming Strong

What happens when a 66 year old man comes onto a video games message board looking for a challenge? You get the story of MaddenMania's poundtherock. Check out the article, 66 Years Old and Still Gaming Strong, to read up on poundtherock's unique story.

"Most gamers hope they will still be alive to enjoy life at 66-years-old much less feel chipper enough to still play video games in their spare time. For MaddenMania user poundtherock, this is the story of his life."

Interesting story....but the last part of how he wants to be buried is kind of bizarre.

Thanks for the kind words, Chris and Steve. Hope that it will help many to continue gaming in their "elderly" years.

I hope so too man, I'm probably going to print out this article and whenever I feel like I am getting too old I'll just look at the headline and suck it up

i'm at 43 and am probably part of the elder video gaming class, but pound has me feeling young again! that's pretty cool that he still plays Madden. it's become my hobby (vs. woodworking, painting, cars, etc...). it's something i like to do after my wife and kids have gone to bed(and yes, before they've gone to bed at times as well!!). exlusively sports games for me, too.

keep it going, pound!
