A PS Vita Christmas Story

[ Edited ]
27 replies 456 views Edited Dec 11, 2012

Since the middle of November, I've been thinking of what I could get my 74 year old Mother.  Once I found out the Wii U released, I thought, wow.. she might like that, she's always been a NES fan.  So I phoned her up and told her I was thinking about getting her a Wii U, I told her to do some research on it by going to certain sites.

 

Towards the end of the day, I get a text message from her saying "I think I'd rather have a hand held".  I sighed, because I thought this would be a good thing for her.  So anyway, I texted her back and said okay, here are your choices as far as handhelds.  I told her about the 3DS XL and of course the PS Vita.  I said now, go look at the games available for each and see what you might like.

 

I have both units, and I let her try out the PS Vita, with rayman being her game (yes, she likes rayman).  The whole time playing it, she kept saying, "I like this, I like this".  Needless to say, she never got to play with the 3DS XL, her mind was made up.

 

So, my 74 year old mother is now playing with her PS Vita that she got as an early Christmas gift.

 

Christmas day, she can open up her other two gifts, Rayman and of course LittleBigPlanet.  She always loved the littlebigplanet commercials.  And while she was trying out the Rayman on the PS Vita, she made a comment about playing that sack person game on it. LOL

 

74 and she still likes gaming.  Right now she is playing Zen Pinball 2..

 

Well that's my Christmas story Smiley Happy

Good story BUT you forgot to give her Ragnarok Odyssey a truly great game for anyone.

Yes, they are, and I'd be totally ok with getting owned by a 74 year old, but it's the close-minded gamers with inflated egos that can't handle it and I find it very comical. lol

It's a great rpg game. If you get stuck somewhere in the game give us gamers a holla and we'll help you.
