Meet 90-year-old Hamako Mori, the world's oldest video game YouTuber [CNN] “A Japanese woman who built a cult following online with her video game skills has been recognized as the world's oldest YouTube gamer — at the age of 90. Hamako Mori, known as "Gamer Grandma" to her 250,000 YouTube subscribers, started gaming 39 years ago. Her YouTube channel launched in 2015, and she posts up to four videos a month. In her clips, she does everything from unboxing new consoles to broadcasting her gaming prowess. And now Mori, who counts the "Grand Theft Auto" series among her favorites, is officially the world's oldest gaming YouTuber, according to Guinness World Records. [...] Mori has also collected an array of consoles over the decades. The first one she owned was Cassette Vision, which was released in Japan on July 30, 1981. "It looked like so much fun, and I thought it's not fair if only children played it," Mori said.”

My brother is a life-long keyboard/piano player who has played in professional bands. And yet he tells me he's "too old" to get the hang of some games. Sheesh.

You go, Hamako Mori!
