The booming global gaming industry is dominated by young people. But five pensioners who call themselves the “Silver Snipers”are proof of gaming’s wider appeal. Trending follows the team as they head to DreamHack, a professional eSports tournament in Sweden. Not only is gaming a hobby that connects them with their grandchildren’s generation, but it’s also helped them through some tough times in life. They’re keen to shoot their virtual enemies, and they have plenty of young fans, but can the Silver Snipers take down their arch rivals from Finland, the Grey Gunners?
