Wow, that’s pretty cool! I did the math and it turns out that she was in her 50s when she played the Cassette Vision and the NES during the 1980s:

2019 - 89 = 1930 (the year she was born)

1981 - 1930 = 51 (years old)

Note: the Cassette Vision was released in 1981.

Dear Grandma, you have my respect, even if it is worth a quak.

I agree. As someone who grew up on games and is older now, I'm having so much fun playing when I was younger. I turned out a bit jaded and playing less and less. Still enjoy games though but I can't finish a single one nowadays due to mood and IRL responsibilities.

She has a fun channel, there's something just immediately fun about watching a lady in her 80's sneak around and execute zombies, or playing GTA5.

I laughed when I read she was playing GTA V.
I guess she's role playing as yakuza, beating up people for protection money, and driving over pedestrians in her Yakuza Lincoln with the steering wheel "on the wrong side"?
"Grandma Yakuza" will be a downloadable character in the Japanese release of GTA 6!

There are plenty of people in their 40s and 50s still playing games in the West. There are guys older than that playing flight sims...
