In fact, she’s getting better at her game – and you could certainly say that it comes with age, huh? Her many years of gaming experience means she’s so much better than many players out there!

This gaming grandma discovered her passion in games back in 1981, playing using the Cassette Vision console. When she switched to classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) or better known in Japan as “Famicon”, this really got her hooked.

When the ‘90s introduced Resident Evil on the PlayStation, Mori admitted that she was rather ‘shocked’ with the advanced graphics and storyline. She went on to enjoy so many RPGs as she entered the world of online gaming, but she wanted to enjoy with more people. So, when YouTube became popular, she used it to share the joy of online gaming with others.

A lot of people were so impressed by this gaming grandma that she now has nearly 100k followers on her YouTube channel! Her advice for gamers? Start young! For someone who has been gaming for so long, that sounds like a great advice!
