Beloved Gaming Grandma, Shirley Curry, Is Front and Center In New Documentary

by Liana Ruppert

Shirley Curry, also known as the Gaming Grandma and Skyrim Grandma, is officially a character in the upcoming The Elder Scrolls 6. The wholesome gamer is 81-years young and she completely stole the gaming community’s heart when her YouTube channel made its grand debut back in 2015. Since then, she’s become a huge name in our community in no small part due to her insatiable love for Skyrim. Now we can get even more Shirley with an incredible new documentary! 

Her entire channel is absolutely magical. With her calming voice and ease with which she challenges the landscapes of Tamriel, Grandma Shirley’s videos are almost hypnotic and a pure joy to watch from start to finish. She feels like family, and we’re all her grandchildren, and we absolutely love everything about this brand new documentary from the Gameumentary YouTube channel.

At the time this article was written, Shirley has amassed over 522,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel, and for good reason. She mostly stays within Skyrim’s game space, but she has ventured out to other titles as well. She takes on Tamriel with skilled precision, but her attention to her viewers is something that feels like coming home. This documentary delves into her passion for gaming, her community, and where she goes from here now that she’s going to be officially a part of the franchise she loves so much. 

When you’re done watching the amazing video at the top of the article, you can also check out her adorable conversation with Bethesda’s Todd Howard below where she made the official announcement of her involvement in the upcoming game:
