Grandma’s still gaming — more than ever

Moving out on my favorite horse

For the one or two readers who might be wondering, let me assure you that I am still gaming — more than ever since the pandemic started. After a very long absence I got back into Red Dead Redemption 2 (I was burned out on Destiny 2). I played through it another 1½ times before deciding to give Red Dead Online another try. Many, many improvements had been made in my long absence and I was immediately hooked. Only now have I begun trying to wean myself away from it because Assassin’s Creed Valhalla comes out next week and I intend to play.

You can see in the screenshots that I created a red-haired female character. I don’t know why, but I usually do if that’s an option. Maybe because it’s the most unlike the real me. The horse in the picture is my newest and current favorite, a Criollo. It’s a breed from South America that I’d never heard of. Currently he’s one of four horses I own; I’d own more, but it’s expensive to buy and stable them. I’m sorry the pictures aren’t better. Getting a great scene from a big tv screen to a usable format on my computer was complicated.

So that’s about it. This is how I’ve been coping with 2020 — escaping into a big beautiful world of mountains, plains, rivers, horses, and much, much more in 1899 America.

(Oh, and ice cream. Lots of yummy, real life ice cream.)

I can always retreat to my camp for a little rest in a safe place.

(For those who don’t know me, I’m 77 years old. I was dubbed “kickass grandma” by my grandson because of my gaming.)
