Gamer’s Japanese grandmother: meet Hamako Mori, 90, the oldest videogame in the world YouTuber

At 90, Hamako Mori is officially the world's oldest gaming YouTuber, according to Guinness World Records.
Hamako Mori, known as “Gamer Grandma” for its 250,000 Subscribe YouTube, started playing 39 years ago. His YouTube channel was launched in 2015 and publishes up to four videos per month.

In his clips, he does everything from unboxing new consoles to transmitting his gaming skills.

And now Mori, which features “Grand Theft Auto” as one of its favorites, is officially the oldest YouTube game in the world, according to Guinness World Records.

“After living so long, I feel more than ever that playing for so long has been the right choice. I’m really enjoying life – it’s rosy,” Mori said in a Guinness World Records press release.

Mori maintains a strong sense of humor in his videos, with a nickname “Elder playing Elder Scrolls V Skyrim”, referring to the popular fantasy role title. They also offer a candid close-up on her life: in “The 90-year-old grandmother plays Dauntless” – which has more than 3 million views – Mori blows out the candles on her birthday cake before vlogging about her game of monstrous battles.

“I’m going to play ‘Dauntless’ today,” he says. “After I started playing this, it was so much fun and I couldn’t stop. I can’t watch any other game – it’s all about this … sometimes I end up playing until 2 in the morning.”

Mori has also collected a number of consoles over the decades. The first he owned was Cassette Vision, which was released in Japan on July 30, 1981.

“It looked so fun, and I thought it wasn’t fair if only the kids played it,” said Mori.
