We’ve all grew up with games, be it consoles, PCs, or any other gaming form. We’ve formed fond memories with our favorite games, linked it to certain events, or just played them with a dear person that we once had.
Youtube commenter “00WARTHERAPY00” tells a sad story about him and his dead gamer dad, where his dad’s ghost still roams his favorite childhood game even after he passed away.
“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.
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.
A moving story indeed, one that reminds us that the true meaning of gaming isn’t only about the game but the way you play it and with who, many of us hold dear memories to our past gaming moments and how they’ll forever live in our hearts.
Do you have a good memory you can share with us ? let us know.
