...for one teenage YouTube commenter (00WARTHERAPY00) that scenario is real. And in the comments section of a piece about whether video games can be a spiritual experience, he told his touching story:

Well, when i was 4, my dad bought a trusty XBox. you know, the first, ruggedy, blocky one from 2001. we had tons and tons and tons of 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, i noticed something.

we used to play a racing game, Rally Sports Challenge. actually pretty awesome for the time it came.

and once i started meddling around... i found a GHOST.

literaly.

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, untill i was 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 line, just to ensure i wouldnt delete it.
Bliss.

Heh, maybe I would if the story hadn't already trended large worldwide.

I just thought I'd bring it to y'all guy's attention though. The feeling of it really choked me up.

I'm not sure what makes me sadder. This story, or the fact that there'll never be another Rally game as great as Rallisport Challenge 1 or 2

My Dad's shit at car games, even worse than me.

I've forgotten what my point was.
