Did a search and couldn't quite come up with anything related to this, just wondering if any other people out there have a parent that plays video games still?
My father is 54 years old and got into gaming around 2004 when Half Life 2 was released, after letting him play through it he was hooked and asked me to build him a decent rig to play more games like this. A year later he thought he would go ahead and open an internet cafe as a 'hobby business' on the side I guess, with about 10 decent gaming PC's, at first it was great. Use to hold lock ins on the last Friday of every month which predominantly consisted of 12 hours straight of Battlefield 1942 and Pizza. Couple of years later (Once everyone pretty much had decent internet here in Australia it died down and he was forced to close.
Since then he's pretty much kept up with latest gaming hardware every 2 years or so and playing through most FPS single player campaigns, any tower defence game he can find on steam and Battlefield and Call of Duty online multiplayer. The funny part is he is just 54 year old truck driver that doesn't trust 'the internet' getting his money so he'll give me a call to gift him games on steam and give me cash when ever I catch up with him.
Just wondering if anyone else out there that has parents/parent that still plays video games today? When ever I tell friends about this they find it really weird and I guess growing up with it, it's never really felt all that weird to me.
