(RNN) - You don't have to be a teenager to get hooked on video games.

Virginia resident Shirley Curry, 80, is an avid gamer and YouTuber who calls her 210,457 followers her “grandkids.”

Over the course of her YouTube career, she has amassed more than 5 million views across her 302 videos. For those not familiar with the gaming scene – that’s a lot.

She has spent hundreds of hours playing a video game called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Inside the game, she’s killed virtual bears, looted corpses and slain dragons.

In real life, Curry has four sons, nine grandchildren and one great grandson.

Skyrim players embark on a journey that can take up to 32 hours to finish. If you want to see the game in its entirety, it’ll take about 230 hours.

An overhauled version of the game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, came out on Oct. 27, 2016.
