A Chinese grandfather, aged 68, beats the record of age and achievements in the most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game- World of Warcraft (WoW).

The retired guy has been playing for eight years, reaching six level-90 WoW characters. Moreover, the World of Warcraft grandpa is reported to have an additional (to the six characters) another four characters above level 80.

Experts say that a result like that is not easily achieved and one needs to dedicate a considerable amount of one’s spare time, in order to reach that many high level characters.

According to TechWeb, the WoW 68-year-old player plays regularly with his grandson and even starts playing the famous game first thing in the day, immediately after waking up.

Interestingly enough, the previous occupation of the gamer is unknown. However, what is reported is that it had nothing to do with video games.
