Forget knitting needles--this granny likes her controller

Put aside those stereotypes of gamers as young testosterone-laden men and make way for "Old Grandma Hardcore", a 70-year-old Cleveland resident who's now the "senior correspondent" for MTV's G-Hole.

In this G-Hole clip, which has apparently made its way through the Web with help from someone at Case Western Reserve University (via Chip Chick), Barbara St. Hillaire tells how she got into gaming and, among other things, notes the game that makes her curse "like a sailor" (the most).

St. Hillaire was named one of GamerGod's "10 Most Interesting People in Gamingfor 2005," and her grandson, Timothy, writes a blog about her.
