So we know now that boomers are online doing a lot of the same things that younger people do. Why would gaming be any different? Well, in fact it isn’t. In a nod to changing trends in gaming, AARP’s website will include a gaming platform. Turns out boomers spend 100 minutes of their leisure time each week playing video or computer games. I wonder how much of that “leisure time” takes place in the office?
Maybe boomers are spending so much more time playing video games because they are trying to forget about the economy. Between high gas prices, a tight credit market, and bad housing market, we are far from out of the woods here.
