John Bates of Onalaska Wisconsin has proven that video games are not just for kids anymore. At 87 years young he has put his bowling skills to the test and is now a record holder in Wii bowling 3 years in a row.

Granted many hard core gamers would love nothing more than to be able to sit at home everyday and hone their skills, but hey give him a break he is 87 and deserves to play Wii all day If he wants.

The video below is a few years old, when John first broke the world record, but you get the just of just how passionate he is. I say good for you, he bowls in real life and at home, It keeps him active and obviously helps him keep his competitive edge too.
