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.

Oma liebt Deutschland!!

We are getting quite a lot of traffic from google.de searching specifically for "grandma hardcore god of war" and "old grandma hard core," with many different IP addresses and ISP's. It was too concise a search to be random. I thought perhaps a radio station in Germany or Austria had mentioned the BusinessWeek article.

It didn't take me long to find the source.

What I didn't expect was a mention within Der Speigel, a newspaper, magazine and news conglomerate that needs no introduction. (To view the article it may require registration) Grandma is honored!

So to our German friends, we invite you to watch the videos on the right sidebar free of advertisements, go through our archives, and write to Spiegel Online telling them they desperately need to link to the site so everyone can stop searching! Update: Not only did Spiegel write another article, it made the front page!! OF SPIEGEL!!

    lol!!! You´re funny ^^
    I´m a german guy, and only our politics oder little tourist towns are saying: Willkommen

    That is just a little bit like: " I just wanna blow some sugar in your ass!!!"

    If you like somebody you´re saying: "Hi, wie gehts dir, schön das du da bist" or "Toll dich zu sehen"

    So, nice greetings to Granny...

    Sven from Germany ^^
