  • A 93-year-old grandfather from Japan has gone viral on YouTube for his gaming videos.
  • Apparently, the elderly man loves playing racing games and often chooses his favorite classic vehicles.
  • He discovered his love for gaming after seeing his grandson play Forza 7.

This old man from Japan is not your typical grandfather. Case in point, he’s already 93 years old but is a massive video game fan! Yes, this elderly man loves racing games and has even built a following on YouTube after his videos went viral online.

Apparently, this cool granddad has always been fascinated with vehicles. In the 1960s, he worked as a Tokyo taxi driver. From the 1970s to the 1990s, he was a dump truck driver. He also got to drive a Mazda Savana RX7 back in the days.

In one of his videos, we can see him reuniting with the classic car – at least through a game – and he’s obviously pretty thrilled about the whole experience.

According to reports, the car-loving senior saw his grandson Olivin Corp playing Forza 7. He later asked if he could try the game. He was amazed that the game had a lot of classic vehicles to choose from, including the Mazda RX-7 so he picked that and even customized its color to metallic silver to match his old car.

Olivin started filming and not surprisingly, the footage later gained a lot of attention on YouTube.

Now watch him drive a Lamborghini!

Olivin shared that his grandfather had stopped driving years ago after he surrendered his license. His old age was already making it difficult for him to drive. Thanks to gaming, he’s now back to driving his favorite cars and enjoying the road.

Whoever said video games are just for kids is clearly wrong.
