There are "Baby Boomers" that play this game, they were born between 1945 and 1964 and even older. For those who may not know why they are called "Baby Boomers" it is because of the many men who went to War. Many were killed during WWII and after that the population took a big hit in numbers.

 

Baby Boomers are aging and in different health situations and even though that is so, they still think young even when their bodies are deteriorating, just as others will as they age. This game is a good thing for them, because it sharpens up their reaction skills/strategy and can only  benefit them as drivers on the highways and their critical thinking skills. It is a win-win for them and for some as an added bonus of making online contacts if they live alone.

 

These folks are helpful and are wise due to their years of life. They have formed a group called "Gray Wolf" where they can come together online and discuss the game. The Gray Wolf, is what it is, Gray and aging.

 

Today, the U.S. government is experimenting with those Veterans who suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from combat operations. Immersing them in intense combat games followed by clinical therapies in order to help them recover from it, the same popular games that many play today; it's working.

 

My mother's uncle, my grandfather's brother went through WWII and Korea in combat operations without being wounded. However, after all was over he drank himself to death, no doubt from PTSD that no one at the time was aware of. It is good today we know more about the devastating effects of PTSD.
