Want to know one of the fastest-growing markets in voice-overs? That’s right, it’s seniors! Before you stop and say ‘OK, Boomer,‘ hear us out; it turns out that as older folk break free from ageist stereotypes, they go after new careers with renewed zest. As things stand, being a freelance voice artist is a pretty sweet deal, and ever-growing industries such as gaming call for more and more seniors. What better, then, than to whet your appetite for the subject with some sample video game senior female scripts?
Who Wants Video Game Senior Female Scripts Anyway?
Well, before you get so curmudgeonly with us, you should know that things have changed. While we may not be in the future envisioned by science-fiction authors of the 50s, technology is very much a part and parcel of our everyday lives. As it is, many older folk (in their 70s and beyond) grew up in a world with video games and evolved alongside the medium. As a 2019 study by the AARP attests, 50.9 million older adults are playing video games.
So, what does that mean, then? For one, it’s that people like being spoken to on their own terms. While it’s great to see hip young characters hogging the limelight, sometimes it’s time to let the grayheads shine. With such a huge audience, you can bet that seniors will love to hear a familiar voice instead of something out of the “key” target demographic of 18-35.
So, if we had to make a few points about seniors in video games, they’re:
- Seniors love hearing familiar voices in video games. Those are voices that represent their own demographics, interests, and identities.
- If seniors still sorely lack representation in video games, imagine female older adults. Writing great video game senior female scripts increases inclusivity and equality, and that can’t be a bad thing.
- It’s not just about demographics. Sometimes, the classic stereotypes and TV tropes are there for a reason. When you need a mature character to be the voice of wisdom, why not go with a senior? Older female voices can add plenty of zest to characters like martial arts masters, wise old generals, and mentor types.

Olga is a lonely, introverted widow who enjoys spending her afternoons reading a good book by the window. She is often immersed in thought and rarely has contact with the outside world except for the occasional walk. One day, an unexpected event gets her tangled into a mystery, and she has to clear her daughter’s name before it’s too late.

English – North America
*Olga is sitting by the window in her living room. She’s immersed in a book, deep in thought. Her old rotary phone rings and she’s woken up from her trance. She walks up to the phone with a surprising pep in her step. She picks up.*
*A muffled voice can be heard on the other side of the phone*
Olga: What do you mean she’s in custody? For what, exactly? *A pause* Well, I tell you that can’t be, because she was with me when that happened. *Pause* Yes, that’s right, officer. We were having dinner together when what you’re describing took place. Unless my daughter has the power to duplicate herself, I think you’ve got the wrong person, and I can prove it. *Pause* What do you mean you’re holding her anyway? Well, that simply will not do. I’m coming down to the precinct right now! You’d better let my Audrey go right now or I’m going to let you have it!
*Olga hangs up, quickly grabs her purse and car keys, deftly changes her loafers to shoes, and walks right out into the street*
*Olga is sitting down at a comfortable couch in the police precinct. A perplexed officer is taking her statement.*
Olga: That’s correct, officer. Even if you don’t believe me and I’m the only witness, let me go over it again. Audrey and I had dinner at my place from 6:30 pm until 9 pm yesterday. I even made dessert, for crying out loud! How could she have possibly been at the other end of the city if she was with me?
*The officer scratches his head and seems lost in thought.*
*After waiting for hours during her improvised stakeout, Olga finally watches a shadowy figure emerge from the building.*
Olga: Hey, you! Stop! I need to ask you a few questions! *The figure stops, turns, and starts running down the street. Olga starts her car and gives chase* Hey! I’m one of the good guys, and I can prove it! You don’t have to run!
