Best video games for people over 55 (Part 1)

If you’ve ever searched for games for people over 50 and then you will be disappointed at the results: lists of board games, brain games and healthy games “for any adult.” which is not much of a challenge. In short, there aren’t a lot of games targeted to old people.

In fact, a recent survey in the Great Britain suggested that more older adults play video games than we might think — 42% of adults age 55 to 64 enjoy playing video games such as strategy games and multiplayer games with their grandchildren.

So, in this list, you will find a good mix of games for old people to enjoy in smartphone, computer or gaming console.

1. Candy Crush

Candy Crush is a very simple puzzle game that can be downloaded on any Apple or Android gadget. With over a trillion levels to playe, Candy Crush is one of the most famous phone games of all time. The target is to match three of the same candies in a row to increase your score and move to new levels. It’s an addicting game, so be careful with the in-app purchases to get more lives and power-ups; it can easily get you out of control. The game is filled with thousands of levels and leaderboards so you can track how good you’re compared to your friends.

2. Backgammon

Backgammon is a classic board game that could be enjoyed in the living room or even by the pool. What a lot of older gaming fans don’t get is this great game can be enjoyed on almost any device. Backgammon can be played on a Mac or a PC.

The best thing about this video game is for anyone that’s played it on a board, doesn’t need to know the rules in advance. Additionally, it can be enjoyed online so you can play with friends and family from any place in the country.
