Do you know that mind stimulation games can make your brain sharp? Video games can be useful for living a long healthy life. Brain Age, NES and good ol' Bomberman work great in keeping players’ brain sharp. Umeji Narisawa, 99 years old lady from Sendai, has been playing NES (technically the Famicon, the Japanese version of the system) from 26-years when her grand kids brought her action/puzzle classic Bomberman for the NES. At the tender age of 73, her activity of playing game became her hobby.
Umeji Narisawa decided to play the game for several hours a day and believed that her brain becomes sharp by playing game. Now, she clears all 50 levels and sometimes even plays the game several times in one day. She has become master in Bomberman game after twenty-six years’ practice. Her daily Bomberman sessions are useful for her health as she recognized the challenging puzzles of game to keep her brain focused, and she presses the buttons to exercise the fingers.
Umeji Narisawa proves that people do not stop to try new things in any age of their life. People do not need to think that they are old as it is only a state of mind and if they keep their mind young, they would not get old.
