I was given the opportunity to do a TEDx talk titled “How games are changing the way we age”. During this 8-minute talk, I discuss how video games can make a difference when we are growing old, and I will try to convince you to look differently at both games and ageing, and how one is related to the other. I argue that this shift in perception is important and quite urgent. Our society is ageing rapidly and games can be of great help in overcoming the socio-economic issues caused by this phenomenon, but their enormous potential is currently undermined by ageism in a myriad a forms.
