He mastered the multi-phone technique
Once I’m well into retirement age, will I still keep up with video games (whatever they might look like by then)? Will I live in the countryside with four large dogs and spend my afternoons on jigsaw puzzles? I don’t know what the future holds, but stories like this keep me thinking positive thoughts.
As reported by EBC News, a 70-year-old man in Taiwan has become a real-life Pokémon Go master.
This warms my heart. He’s staying active, he’s genuinely dedicated to a hobby he enjoys, and he’s bolstering other players’ enjoyment in the process. Yep, he is absolutely out there living his best life.
Young, old, or middle-aged, I don’t care — this setup is impressive. I can barely get Spotify to cooperate with me while riding my bike. Meanwhile, this guy’s out here with upwards of nine devices.
Our own Chris Carter says that during the height of Pokémon Go fever, his town had a local legend: a retiree in his 70s who “drove a Ferrari to gyms and boasted that he ‘never spent a dollar on the game.’”
I live for this stuff. Have any similar warm-‘n’-fuzzy stories of elderly gaming?
