The BBC have posted a rather surprising new video article [uploaded by ReutersExclusiveNews] that discusses the benefits of videogames with a senior female gamer, Hilda Knott.

Ms. Knott discloses, and it makes total sense, that videogames are beneficial to her as they keep her mentally active.

In the report on BBC, the news giant claims:

“It is predicted that by the end of this year, female gamers will outnumber men for the first time.”

Thank you Twitter @Psycho163 for this little gem.
