Motto: winning since day one
The bomber jackets keep them warm in the air conditioning.
They fucked my _grandma_ last night.
Git gud, sonny.
Ramping up the crowd:
“Whose excited for the Silver Snipers?!”
“They can’t hear you!”
(Crowd roars louder)
“No guys, see as you age, blood flow to the cochlea declines, usually leading to a loss in auditory acuity….so anyway…”
I’m absolutely convinced that video games can dramatically improve health for seniors. I mean, video games must be absolutely magnificent for demetia prevention. It’s social (or, it can be). Great for motor skills, problem solving, creativity, and it’s just so damn fun too.
This repost is so old, i wonder which ones are still alive.
They’re not seniors anymore. They’re hardened working class until they’re 73.
“Goddamn it, Hank. I told you to watch my six. How many times are you going to let me down? I swear it’s like being in ‘Nam all over again!”
“We were in Korea you senile asshole!”
“Son, I was stacking bodies 5 foot high before your mom was even thought about.”
“Oh, you wanna bang my mom? Here’s a shovel, she’s been dead 23 years.”
They’ve been waiting on Counter Strike 2 for about 50 years now.
nobody will ever be as cool as they are. we all need to just give up. that’s the most badass thing I’ve ever seen
This is really cool not going to lie.
The boys and I in the nursing home 50 years from now.
This is fuckin legit 🔥
They’re probably better than me…
Life goals. Not Counterstike, I’ not good enough at shooters…but still! Haha
Can they compete with younger gamers? I always heard that no one can match the reaction speed of youth. (I’m asking this as a non-modern-gamer)
I read “The Sliver Spiners” bro I can’t ironically pretend I have dyslexia anymore
“Frank is down, Frank is down?”
“But the round just started!”
“I’m not talking shout the game!”
“…who the fuck is Frank?”
Are these guys still around?
“Trust me bro. I’ve been playing CS since I was 60.”
[Silver Snipers are Swedish and they had an official match against the Finnish senior team Grey Gunners](https://i.imgur.com/pdgtB2h.jpg)
I’ve never in my life been interested in esports, I want to watch them play.
Oh my goodness it’s “The End” but they succeeded in the SSS project!
Metal Gear fans that’s for you
That does bring up some interesting thoughts, as the first of the gaming generations start to age. What will retirement, and gaming look like in the future for seniors?
Loneliness is an absolutely devastating thing for elderly, it can be heartbreaking to see. I wonder what future games will consciously kept accessible for older folks, and accommodate for reflex, vision loss etc. It could allow some incredible communities and friendships to flourish.
20 years ago I was in a clan called the “o35s”, or “the over thirty-fives”.
It would have to be the o55s today…
When Counter-Strike first came out they would’ve been in their 30s and 40s
