A 99-year-old Japanese woman may yet offer the best proof of regular video gaming being good for the health.

Umeji Narisawa started playing “Bomberman” for the original 1980s Nintendo Entertainment System console when she saw her grandchildren had fun playing it, Japan Probe reported.

Narisawa said playing the game daily has kept her mind sharp, and credits the daily pressing of controller buttons for her dexterity – she can still thread a needle to this day, the report said.

The report indicated Narisawa started taking up the game in 1985, becoming an expert and clearing all 50 levels of the game.
