If you’ve got a big old case of the terrible Tuesdays, I have just the remedy for you, mates. A game designer posted a YouTube video of his 87-year-old gamer grandma taking him on a tour through her Animal Crossing town and it’s just as wholesome as it sounds.
Paul Huban‘s grandma, Audrey, has been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf on her Nintendo 3DS nearly every day for four years, clocking up a seriously impressive 3,580 hours of play. The video was made in response to a Reddit thread Paul made about his legendary nanna which went viral, resulting in one user selling them a new 3DS for Christmas after her old one finally threw in the towel.

Her 3DS finally broke this year, so we got her a new one for Christmas. During a system transfer I checked her activity log: pic.twitter.com/R33KycrW4q
The nearly 30-minute video showcases Audrey’s character, Mayor Audie, and the frankly immaculate town she runs. She’s no pushover, either, calling some of her problematic villagers “annoying,” including one she says is obsessed with exercising. I hear ya, Audrey, gym junkies can be annoying as fuck.
You can check out the incredibly sweet video below.
Hell yeah, that’s the good shit, folks. As Paul says in the video, Audrey’s been gaming since the 90s, starting off with the OG Game Boy with classic Tetris.
She also recently scored a Nintendo Switch via a GoFundMe account set up by her grandson and is loving the shit out of some Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu right now. As you’d imagine, she’s pretty keen on the new Animal Crossing game’s release later this year, too.
Gran says thanks to all the wonderful people who pitched in to get her a Switch! She's so happy and can't wait for the new Animal Crossing game. In the meantime we got her Let's Go Pikachu since she's also a Pokemon fan 🙂 pic.twitter.com/UTeU8Ww1qe— Paul ⚔️ Hubans (@phubans) January 7, 2019
Nice one, Audrey, I bet Tom Nook is stoked on your town, too.
