A video of an 84-year-old grandfather playing Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 with his grandchildren is going viral on YouTube. The candid footage, uploaded only three days ago, has since received over 600,000 views.
"It's frozen, it won't move," Grandpa says at the beginning of the video. Viewers then hear the voice of his grandkids helping out. Later, the adorable grandpa gets into game and proudly faces the camera to say, "I got him!" He is visibly having fun, shrieking and jumping off his seat as he goes on playing.
The video drew varied comments. Some users said they couldn't wipe the smile off their face while watching. Others were concerned about grandpa's health. (Is he fit enough for the thrill of the game?) Some others wished their grandpa is just as "cool" to try out their favorite games, too.
"We invited our 84-year old grandpa to play some Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 with us... we never thought he'd react like this!! Hope you laugh as hard as we did, share with friends and family!!!"

Thats awesome! My grandpa played one of those Wii dance games one time with a younger cousin... I was laughing for days. - acoates101
But look at him! He is so healthy, jumping all over the sofa and celebrating his wins... I don't think a little more jumps would do much harm :) - seusgordo (in reaction to a fears of heart attack by another user)
