Grandma Makes Fark.com!
There are a handful of websites Grandma frequents, Fark is one of them. I even had a TotalFark account once before $5.00 a month became too much for this ramen-noodle college dweller. Of all the links we've tracked in the past few days since the AP article surfaced on Christmas, this one is by far the most exciting.
It's not so much about the traffic, we recieved far more taffic from Der Spiegel and Business Week then we are from Fark, it's about the TYPE of folks that read Fark that read about Grandma. They understand. Grandma isn't unique as an elderly gamer, we've said this in the past- at least 19% of gamers are over the age of 50 according to the ESRB. Grandma, however, represents the watershed to the electronic entertainment industry that we've all come to learn was inevitable. The readers of Fark seem to get this immediately; and that's a warm and fuzzy feeling. (The Fark community is also fucking cool as hell; by the way. For the most part they're a groovy bunch of people.)
Thanks, Fark. Grandma loves you too.
