90-year-old Hamako Mori has been named by Guinness World Records as the planet’s oldest gaming Youtuber.

Hamako shares videos of herself playing different video games via her Youtube channel, Gamer Grandma, which has over 150,000 subscribers.

She began playing 39 years ago when she purchased her first gaming console, a Cassette Vision.

“It looked so much fun, and I thought it’s not fair if only children played it,” Mori said. “I thought life would be more fun if I knew how to play it. So I started playing, at first while no one was watching.”

Mori’s now plays a variety of games for her hundreds of thousands of fans, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Resident Evil 3 and even Dark Souls 3.

For Mori, gaming has become an important part of her life, and keeps her feeling young. “After living for this long, I feel more than ever that playing games for this long was the right choice. I am truly enjoying my life – it’s rosy,” she said.
