I remember some of my most magical moments with video games came from getting my grandparents, who were staunch non-gamers, and sitting them around the living room TV and playing Street Fighter 2 on my SNES. I tell you, watching a bunch of 70-year olds whoop and holler after beating the shit out of their muscular avatars is an image that will never leave my mind.

But trying to explain some games to the generations passed was difficult in itself at times. Like imagine trying to describe VR to someone who played with sticks for fun?

With that being said the gap of knowledge is swiftly thinning with there being more elders enjoying video games and the world of information to be found on the internet. But there still are some games out there that may spark a total "wtf" moment. So how would you explain these games to your grandparents?

Well here's my attempt!

1. Dark Souls 3

Fighty game where you roll around with a massive sword. You will die and you will curse.

2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

It's about a really shouty guy or lady that battles dragons with fireballs. Sometimes a sword if you're feeling mighty.

3. Super Mario Bros.

This is all about a tiny plumber with a giant mustache who eats mushrooms, gets really big and jumps on turtles and something that looks like the turd emoji. Oh and he has to save a useless princess from a giant, evil turtle over and over again.

4. Fallout 4

America is destroyed by nuclear war and humanity gets thrown into underground vaults for safekeeping. Centuries later you emerge and everything tries to kill you, but not as much as the game's glitches.

5. Uncharted 4

You play as a sociopath with a sense of humor who's pretty good at climbing and shoots a lot of people for treasure.

6. DOOM

I, umm, don't think you'll like it.

7. Overwatch

It's like bridge but with guns.

8. Far Cry Primal

The latest in a long line of Far Cry games has you running around and shooting things and people. But this time...you use spears! And ride mammoths.

9. Sonic the Hedgehog

It's a little blue hedgehog that runs really fast, destroys robots to free little animals and fights a dude in a mustache that floats around. No not that mustachioed guy.

10. Football Manager 2016

It's just the greatest game ever made. Period.
