Active aging is a concept about maintaining and sustaining cognitive and functional abilities during the process of aging and in old age. To ensure that human beings are not detached from life, continue their societal roles, and have an effective and productive life as they age, it is important that human beings keep performing the activities that they enjoy and take pleasure in. However, it was found that no study adequately addressed the importance of the game, which is one of these activities, to active aging. Therefore, the article aims to examine the concepts of active aging and game, the contributions of the game to active aging, and the use of digital games in active aging. Hence, raising awareness about the importance of the game in the process of active aging and spreading the use of the game in this process are targeted.
