There’s no age limit when it comes to gaming and a 90-year-old Japanese grandma proves just that!
Having built a cult following online over the years, 90-year-old Hamako Mori has been recognised by the Guinness World Record as the oldest gaming YouTuber!
Hamako started gaming 39 years ago and launched her YouTube channel in 2015. Posting up to four videos a month, the “Gaming Grandma” now has over 250,000 subscribers!
The Japanese gamer does everything from unboxing new consoles to broadcasting her gaming clips, and revealed that “Grand Theft Auto” series was among her favourites!
"It looked so much fun, and I thought it's not fair if only children played it," she said. "I thought life would be more fun if I knew how to play it. So I started playing, at first while no one was watching."
Fans love her sense of humour in her videos too, with funny video titles like “elder plays Elder Scrolls V Skyrim” and she plays a wide array of games from Call of Duty to Dark Souls!
"After living for this long, I feel more than ever that playing games for this long was the right choice. I am truly enjoying my life — it's rosy,” she said.
Hamako collected many consoles and software ever since her first console, Cassette Vision back in 1981, and revealed that she didn’t get into modern games until recently.
"I didn't touch it until recently because it's difficult to play. But recent action games are visually spectacular, and they often use actors for characters. So I'm really obsessed with it now," she said, revealing that her current favourite is Grand Theft Auto 5.
"It's like watching a film. I like it the best because it has age restrictions, so children can't play it.”
She said that she’s happy to share her experience with others and said, “it’s such a waste if I’m the only one enjoying it.”
People are loving her gaming energy, with many praising her for still playing games at the age of 90 and others saying she's probably better than them at gaming!
What a cool grandma! She certainly proved that you should invest in your interest no matter your age!
