A ridiculously touching short movie by John Wikstrom based entirely on a YouTube comment on the PBS Game/Show episode titled Can Video Games Be a Spiritual Experience? Did I say touching? Very touching.
When I was 4, my dad bought a trust XBox. you know, the first, ruggedy, blocky one from 2001. we had tons and tons and tons fo fun playing all kinds of games together - until he died, when I was just 6.
i couldnt touch that console for 10 years.
but once i did, inoticed something.
we used to play a racing game, Rally Sports Challenge. actualyl pretty awesome for the time ti came.
and once I started meddling around.... i found a GHOST.
you know, when a time race happens, that the fastest lap so far gets recorded as a ghost driver? yep, you guessed it - his ghost still rolls around the track today.
and so i played and played, and played, until iwas almost able to beat the ghost. until one day i got ahead of it, i surpassed it, and...~
i stopped right in front of the finish like,just to ensure i wouldnt delete it.
