The Ghost Driver

Most of us know the pain of losing a loved one and wishing we could somehow connect with them again.  No matter what your beliefs are, the story of The Ghost Driver is very cool! Rather than retell the story myself, I am going to paste it here in the words of the person who experienced this magical moment. This comment was left on a youtube video which asks the question "Can Gaming Be A Spiritual Experience?"

"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."
