They're not exactly complex tales.

Also, do not underestimate the elderly.

I explained the two games, the 4 parts of the second one, the support conversations, and the stats and weapon triangle.

Some of my grandparents would understand video games, and some of them still struggle to send emails, so wouldn't even begin to grasp it. Some older folks are seriously out of touch with technology.
