    A strange thought occurred to me - most games feature men or women between 15-40 years of age as playable characters, but you can occasionally get games (usually RPGs) where you can also control little girls and boys and old men.

    But I cannot think of a single game where you have an old woman as a playable character - any suggestions? Sorceresses who are 700 years old but look 25 don't count.

    I thought Fable briefly, mainly because of the visible age on your character as you play. Then I realized you can only be a guy in that game.

    Oblivion. You can make some crazy old characters in that game. I also have a professional 100 year old golfer named Shirley in Tiger Woods 05.

    Yeah, Oblivion was my first thought.

    I also believe it is possible to pose as a kinky old woman in most MMOs.

    Your best bets would probably be games type Oblivion and Morrorwind where you can create yourself such a character. Or some sports seriest where you can creat old people to kick ass. :p :D

    So they're all customisable characters rather than pre-set characters?

    Old Woman - Weapon in the Worms series. You can't control her, but she has a 5-second fuse, and she complains about the price of tea.

    Heihachi - Not an old woman, but damn old anyways.

    And if there's a Yu Yu Hakusho game, I imagine you could play as the short old lady. I forget her name.

    And in Tekken 4, he wore a thong. That should count for something...

    Oh. In Paper Mario TYD, one of the characters that joins you is an old ghost-lady.

    There's a game that came with my computer called Super Granny and you're this old ass lady and you like climb up ladders and save cats and plant flowers. It's hardcore.

    What's with the old lady fascination? Are you into granny panties or something?

    ^^ How did I know someone would ask that? :p

    No, it was just a random discussion I was having with someone about whether game developers were ageist and/or sexist.

    I've just thought of one myself - Granny in Paradise on MSN games.

    Crono Cross had tons of characters, i know there was a lady with a frying pan, and she was fairly old. I think she meets the criteria.

    I have play suikoden I and II and i don't remember an old lady in my castle but maybe there was, or maybe she is in one of the later Suikodens, i mean c'mon 150 characters and not 1 old lady?

    True, but in Fable 2 you'll be able to choose to play as a chick...which means by the end of it you'll be an old women.
