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.

Grandma Reaches Front Page of MTV.com; Suck It Ashley Simpson!

A big ol' honking captured frame of Grandma taking out some Zombies adorned the front page of MTV.com today, and for those of you keeping tabs on such things, Hillary Duff has a tiny photo underneath, followed by other rich folks. This proves the class-wars of the American media manifest in photo size hierarchies are unsubstantiated! Grandma's upper lower class and she made it, bitches!

Oh yes. Radiohead; Nirvana; Gorillaz; Daft Punk... GRANDMA. Notice poor Hillary underneath the gaming champion; proving that this week- it really is the week for gamers at MTV. Last night we watched the True Life show on Professional Gaming. Man, now THAT is talent. Grandma's hardcore to be sure- but she's not like the pros out on the MLG circuit; wasting folks in record numbers in CounterStrike and Halo 2 and Super Smash Brothers. That has to be a TON of pressure. Shit, all Grandma has to do is enjoy them, they have to be on top all the time, or they suck.

Also now on MTV.com is Grandma's Q&A for the Obsessed piece. On the page you'll find some of Grandma's favorite movies, songs, bands, etc., as well as a nifty photo slide show of a bunch of new and old pictures. Grandma hates looking at pictures of herself, so you can imagine the sort of reaction I heard. "Get that off the fucking screen! I look STUPID! I can't believe you sent them that picture!"
"Oh yeah? Look at that picture we gave them of me playing Nintendo back in the 80's! THAT's stupid! You look cool!"

Which is true, she does look awesome. MTV suits her personality just fine.

I, on the other hand, end up looking like Peter Goddamn Pettigrew.

We have some more posts coming today; a lot of forums are mentioning Grandma and the responses are ...interesting- so I thought I'd highlight a few Grandma and I found enjoyable to read. Also, Grandma is playing strong on Fatal Frame 3, but wouldn't you know it- ghosts are somewhat of a bitch to kill! Also coming tonight is our Monday Night Blog Round-Up; in which we feature some of Grandma's friends and some gaming news just in case you missed it. Knowing our regulars, however, it's unlikely you missed ANYTHING.

Game on!!

    Oh Tim, you look great on that video - fo REALS! And TV just... does weird things to people - and badly timed photos, too. I look like ass in the official Blizzcon photos, but if you see the picture of me hanging out with Tycho and Gabe, I actually look kind of cool. Also, timing, I suppose - any time you see someone in those Blizzcon photos who is in costume and looking a little tired and irate, that's because it was right before the Costume Contest (which we had to stand around on the sidelines for TWO HOURS for) and we were gorram tired. (although the one of Prince Arthas slamming a Corona back is seriously one of the best pictures ever).

    BUT. You both look fantastic, and the more press the better. SUCK IT, HILARY DUFF! MUAHAHAHHA! Gamers FTW!

    Take care & be well - and GAME ON!

    Grandma looks great in all of her pictures. Can't wait to see her first review at MTV...I can't believe that I'm partaking in the MTV media goliath after such a long time of ignoring it--only for Grandma!

    Tim Baby you're adorable - even with whiskers. No worries.

    Grandma looks on top of the world. I think you've probably secured your spot in whatever passes for heaven, look at what happiness you've brought to those you love and the rest of the world as well. Peace, love, and spinach quiche (hot out of the oven).
