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.

Catch Grandma on Attack of The Show!


Grandma is to appear as a guest on Wednesday night's Attack of the Show in a panel to discuss the somewhat argument-ready topic: "Are Girls better than Guys at Video Games." Also on the panel will most likely be Seanbaby and someone from the PMS Clan. Predictably Grandma's opinion tends to be more on the centrist position of "gender doesn't matter, you fucker," although it's hard to imagine anyone (except for perhaps Chris Crawford) try to take a position that being female will some way hinder one's gaming abilities.

A cock does not a joystick make.

But, I'm getting ahead of myself. Unless insulted directly, Grandma has always held fast to the notion that everyone has a different opinion, and that's cool. Even when Focus on the Family or whoever the hell it was said that the revelation that Grandma plays video games is alarming and dangerous; a catalyst for the destruction of the nuclear model of marriage and the decline of Western Civilization, she just sort of shook her head and stated "I disagree." It isn't until someone calls her an old hag with nothing to do when she finally replies with the inevitable: "hey, FUCK YOU, buddy!"

In any case, there's a ten second delay on live television should such a need arise.


Attack of the Show airs live on the G4 network weeknights at 7pm EST.

Game on!

    I hope I'm as awesome as OGHC when I'm a grandma. :)

    As I usually avoid Attack of the Show for it's overt sexism (ex- MySpace girl of the week), I'll record and watch this one.

    Shame we don't get these shows in England :(

    If a torrent goes up after the show, someone please post it here for OGHC's international fans.

    Best of luck with the interview Grandma!

    Howdy! This is a tad off topic but if Grandma were standing in front of a kiosk and saw that she could pick a pink thing, a blue thing, or a grey thing, which one would she pick? I know its an odd question but you will understand why I am asking in a week or so.

    Later and thanks!

    That guy with the green hair was a sexist retard, and the host wasn't much better. I'm now ashamed of my genitalia. Thanks, Attack of the Show.

    Grandma kicked ass though, or as much as they'd let her.

    The host and the bloke guest were both really rude. And I don't just mean that they were sexist - I mean that they kept on interrupting Grandma and Amber when they were talking. Especially Grandma. It was like they had no respect at all. Their tone of voice and body language, not to mention the condescending questions! It all just screamed of an attitude of "Yeah, yeah, you SAY you like video games other than 'cute' ones but WE know the truth..." Ugh.

    well it was a pain in the butt to find, but i found it thanks to dallin for the link he provided.

    paste this link:
    http://www.g4tv.com/attackoftheshow/videos/index.html

    search for "do girls have game"
    The Loop: Do Girls Have Game?
    Kevin and guests, Amber "Athena Twin" Dalton, Sean Baby and "Old Grandma Hardcore", discuss whether the unspoken rule that guys are better at gaming than girls, rings true

    grams hardly got a word in edgewise, but she certainly held her own. i bet she's clocked in more hours video gaming and has more titles under her belt than those other two guests combined! the host of that show is defniately a cockbite. the network that aired that show should be embarrassed.

    Hello! This can be a tad away topic but when Grandma have been waiting in the front of an kiosk and also noticed that she might look for a white thing, a new glowing blue issue, or a gray point, which might the lady decide on? I am aware its a bizarre question nevertheless, you can realize why I'm wondering per week approximately.
