This 90 year old granny may be the oldest player to play Grand Theft Auto


“Gamer Grandma” 90-year-old granny from Japan likes to play GTA, Call of Duty, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim games

Somebody had said age is just a number! This proves right when you meet the “Gamer Grandma” from Japan. Gamer Grandma is a 90-year-old Japanese Hamako Mori and she is good at games she plays. Maám Mori is a pensioner and lives in a suburb in Tokyo. She has her own YouTube channel called Gamer Grandma after whom she is named affectionately by the gaming community.

Her YouTube channel has nearly 300,000 subscribers who follow her every video. Mori says that she took to gaming to pass time but later it became a hobby. “I’m passionate about playing games every day,” the white-haired widow told AFP in an online interview.

Since starting to play, Mori has played nearly 200 game titles but her favorites are action-adventure series Grand Theft Auto and popular fantasy role-playing game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Mori begins the videos she posts on her YouTube channel with a friendly “Konnichiwa” and a bow.

However, during gameplay, she is as vicious as they get when she wields the guns in Call Of Duty or a sword-wielding android in NieR: Automata. You will be happy to note that Grandma Mori holds a Guinness World Record certifying her as the world’s oldest gaming YouTuber.

She says her first gaming console was a Cassette Vision, which she bought in 1981. You were probably not even born when this gaming console was launched by Epoch Co and was a serious competitor to the Atari 2600 gaming consoles.

She has played most of the gaming world’s smash hits including Super Mario Brothers, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Call Of Duty, and admits to sometimes staying up until 2 am when she is challenged in a game.

Here is a video of her receiving the Guinness world record for world’s oldest gaming YouTuber

You can only bow and salute the enthusiasm of Gamer Grandma.
