Age isn’t going to stop this grandma from enjoying her games. Shirley Curry, a now-83-year-old YouTuber, is not a cooking channel, not a knitting channel, not any type of channel you’d expect from a person her age. Instead, she found herself infatuated with the world of gaming. With that said, it was her birthday April 2 and as a well-meaning gift to Shirley, a group known as Gameumentry launched their latest documentary.
Dubbed “Shirley Curry: The Gaming Grandma”, the doc lasts twenty-seven minutes. The entirety of the documentary is Curry going through her story and how she went about YouTube. From her start as a sweet grandma wanting to sort recipes on a computer to playing Civilization II all the time even going on to her fanbase of a bit over half a million.
The documentary is worth a watch if you’re a fan of knowing how other YouTubers made their beginnings and the journey to where they are now. It’s nice to see a grandmother finding a hobby that landed her the fame and audience she’s found and a spot in The Elder Scrolls 6.
Keep it up, Grandma, and keep on making your wholesome let’s plays!
