Grandparent Heroes Games for 14 Year-Olds and Over

Video games are often considered to be a young person's pastime. These days though, people of all ages play games. The average age of a video game player is late 30's and 31% of 45-64-year-olds in Europe play games regularly.

It's therefore, no surprise that games are made to appeal to a wide range of ages and address topics that are important at different stages of life. There are some games that specifically star older characters as the main protagonist.

This may be because of the stage of life they are at, or because of a role they play in the game's narrative. Either way, these games offer a chance to step into the shoes of a senior character.

This includes games where an older character has a heroic role, like Joel in The Last of Us or Corvo Attano from Dishonored 2. There are other games where the character has a mythic quality that disguises old game, like Geralt in Witcher 3 or Kratos in God of War.

There are other games where you create your own character and it enables you to choose someone who looks older. Games like Watchdogs 3, Red Dead Redemption, Sea of Thieves and Fallout.

This list includes 6 games from the last 13 years, with 296 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to play as an older hero.
