Buying Memory Games for Seniors

I'm interested in possibly purchasing some sort of gaming system for improving memory and keeping me alert. I just saw something online called Brain Games that requires Nintendo DS. Do you use any type gaming system for this sort of thing? I don't use a smart phone. Any suggestion from you other seniors? Thanks.

Games are made specifically for particular gaming systems. A game for a Nintendo will not play on a Sega or Playstation or any other. Some games come in versions for different systems. If you are interested in something like this, find some young person who actually plays games with gaming systems to help you out.

However, I think you would be better finding games to play online that are free. You already have a computer, so use it instead. If you are interested in improving your memory and staving off dementia, I just heard program on the radio (CBC) this morning discussing this. The doctor interviewed regarding prevention of dementia said that likely going for a daily walk of 45 minutes would do more good than doing crosswords or suduko. Being physically fit seems to be a better preventative than anything else, according to the latest research.
