    Gaming isn't just for kids. In Japan, some of the famous video game-makers have now started targeting the elderly population.

    At a nursing home in Yokohama, suburban Tokyo, elderly people aged over 85 have gathered for a bit of fun therapy. The nursing home offers complete video-game booths so that senior citizens can spend the whole day playing, having fun, and getting really exhausted before returning home. The games are designed to help elderly people exercise more and thus improve their health-- thanks to the globally famous video game company Namco Bandai.
