Gamer Grandma

Gamers usually begin their gaming lives when they’re little kids. I had my first experience with a game when I was just a little girl, no older than 4, playing Super Mario on my Nintendo Famicom, the most beloved gaming console at that time. As I grew older, so did my tastes in gaming, so I moved on to a Sega MegaDrive, where I grew up playing classic such as Sonic The Hedgehog and Mortal Kombat. Then, I faced the inevitable move to PlayStation. In fact, most of my fondest childhood memories involves gaming, be it with friends or with it. And as I grew up, gaming evolved, too, breaking barriers, becoming more and more accessible to people of all ages. Actually, if you ask me now, I’ll say that gaming is no longer for children. And I’m sure Shirley Curry will attest to that.
