90-year-old Japanese grandmother is the world’s oldest gamer

GTA V is her favorite game

Published

Imagine if your grandmother plays GTA V while streaming the whole session on YouTube. Apparently, this is what a 90-year-old grandmother in Japan does in her free time.

Meet Hamako Mori, the world’s oldest gamer according to the Guinness World Records. She started a Youtube channel in 2015 and rapidly built a cult following for her unusual antics. Like every other gamer, she does unboxing of new consoles and first impressions of games that she plays. She also does reviews and walkthroughs of a game that she fancies.

Going over to her Youtube channel, you’ll find her walkthroughs of games like Resident Evil 3, Final Fantasy 7, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and just about any game that you can think of. But her most favorite game for the moment is GTA V. Her reason for liking the game is the immersive visuals and story, as well as its true-to-life characters. She even likened the game to watching a film. You can watch her play that game below:

You may wonder how this grandma got hooked into video games in the first place. Apparently, she had been a gamer for the past 39 years. Doing the math, she started playing in 1981. She literally witnessed how the video gaming industry changed over the years. Today, she plays on her PS4 console. It’s possible that she might get the PS5 or Xbox Series X  if those are released in the future.

This just proves that video games are not just for the young. Even in video games, age is just a number. This is especially true for this grandmother who embraced the gaming life with all enthusiasm.

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
