Video games are widespread forms of entertainment that will become increasingly common to encounter as a hobby as the group who grew up with video games age. According to the Entertainment Software Association in a 2020 report, 15% of video game players are above 55 years old, with numbers only expected to rise. As clinicians asked to evaluate for cognitive changes, video game engagement can be a window into someone’s cognition, and may even be the initial sign of cognitive decline. Neurologists should recognize the rich cognitive landscape that video games engage and be able to consider these tasks as a window into everyday cognition.
