Old Grandma Hardcore

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. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

Video #3: Prince of Persia [Grandma Gets Nasty]

She's playing like she used to, as though the camera wasn't there. This video truly portrays the meaning of "Old Grandma Hardcore," and what it takes to achieve that title. It's not all about the years of gaming, or the ownership of one of the few senior citizen discount ticket stubs to "South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut;" no- it's about the attitude. Enjoy.

(For added fun, turn up the volume as far as you can in your office, dorm room, bedroom, etc.,. It's the best way to get to know your R.A. or boss, based on their reaction to OGHC.)

--News: We are developing some regular features to the site, including a video archive including synopsis and track listing. (Many of you ask about the music, and I don't mind a bit- I love to promote these bands anyway I can, so here's an easier way to publish that information.) Also, we are looking for some web-comic artist talent out there to illustrate a few of the many stories we plan on posting (cause e'rybody likes pretty pictures)- so for all you artistic geniuses out there: submit a comic about Grandma playing a video game to my e-mail address:


Also coming soon is "Ask Grandma Hardcore," where people submit questions and she answers 'em. Not much to it, but many have requested it.

Grandma and I feel we just have to say: Hey, Ubisoft. That was fucking cool. Thanks for the kind words, we'll think of you guys whenever we play Splinter Cell (except when we kill each other, then we'll think of only one thing: revenge)

Did you know we made it on to MSNBC's Clicked? Yes you do, you probably found us from there. Liar. Thanks Will!

Thanks for the e-mails and comments everybody; I'll answer them all in time. -T

--Update: The Comments sections have been running a bit slow lately, if you want to add your feedback just e-mail me instead if you have trouble. [I got nervous there for a moment]--
