Esports players retire extremely young compared to traditional athletes. But for the older generations who missed out on the gaming craze, here’s your chance to step into the gaming world.
Although the industry generally targets younger generations, older players make up a significant portion of its consumers.
Data from esports analyst firm NewZoo has found that 42% of baby boomers play video games. That’s according to its Gamer Consumer Insights research, which also found that gaming takes up 10% of free entertainment time for baby boomers, and that 53% of baby boomer gamers are female, the highest proportion of any generation.
The NewZoo Generations Report, which analyzed more than 72,000 people aged 10 to 65 in 33 countries, “Gaming isn’t just for younger generations. While Gen Z and millennials are far more likely to spend their free time playing games than any other form of entertainment, there are a growing number of older consumers who are engaging with games.”
The report found that older gamers are more motivated for casual reasons to play, such as kicking back and relaxing. Therefore, they prefer single player experiences because multiplayer games tend to be more competitive and stressful.

According to research presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference, some forms of cognitive stimulation can delay the onset of degenerative neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Other research found that a combination of playing a specially designed video game and regular telemedicine visits can help people who have had a stroke regain function in their affected limbs as well as traditional physical therapy.
NewZoo found that 14% of baby boomers prefer to play with a traditional gamepad, 27% prefer a PC, and 34% prefer to play on their mobile phone. However, as technology becomes more sophisticated, so do boomers.
Virtual reality is rapidly becoming more common in the home and senior center market as experts recognize the potential of virtual reality for physical therapy and addressing a variety of mental health challenges.
