Digital games are still to a great degree considered a medium mainly for young boys. However, available statistics on Western media use show that this is far from the case. Increasingly, people of all ages and genders play digital games, also older adults in their early 60s and beyond. The aim of the book is to examine, analyse and discuss:
1) What older adults do with digital games and what meanings the use of digital games take on in the everyday life of older adults;
2) How older adults are perceived by society in relation to digital games;
3) How play and games can be used both as a disciplining force and as a means of empowerment in relation to older adults and more generally.
