Introducing: Old Grandma Hardcore…

Hot in the heels of the 94 year old Mac switcher, George Rudinger, is OGHC (aka Old Grandma Hardcore). According to the blog’s owner, CtrlAltDelete, the household consists of Grandma, 69; Mom, 43; the writer, 22; Kenny, 14; and the twins, Barbie (named after Grandma) and Bobby, both 12. The writer is her 22yr old grandson who said he wouldn’t trade his grandma for the world. This is what he had to say…

My Grandma plays video games. Wait- no, that doesn’t do it justice: Grandma is fucking hardcore. She has a decent size TV in her room with surround sound, Digital Cable (through she never watches), GameCube, XBox, Playstation 2, SNES, and Genesis (with the 32X if you can believe that). It’s not just that she plays, anyone can go through the motions of a walkthrough of a console game if they plug at it enough, she’s good. She plays anywhere from 12 to 16 hours a day for RPG (Final Fantasy Series, Xenosaga, Zelda Series, Ico, etc.,.); 10 to 12 hours if she’s on a sports fix (Outlaw Golf is particularly a favorite at the moment); and she gets kicks from destroying guests at the Multiplayer of your choice while serving them the indignity of simultaneously providing delicious cookies.

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. Her favorite game of all time was Final Fantasy VII, her current task is reaching 100% in tour mode of Outlaw Golf 2. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

I couldn’t believe it at first, until I saw videos of her swearing while she plays. Make sure to check out photos of her massive guide book library and her gaming room of course. I wonder if I’ll end up like this when I reach 70…
