And check out this heartwarming story and how video games bring more than violence and annoying fanboyism.

Link

"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."

Ever heard the Animal Crossing story about the mom who played with his son, the son stopped playing, but she continued? When he logged in after her death, he noticed all of the gifts she had been stockpiling for him.

I'll try and find the actual story. It's a tearjerker

Touching story:-) Games bringing a father and son together.

Sadly lots of immature people in SW won't appreciate it.

I am going to need a detailed invoice because I have a feeling you are padding the bill.

Figured it was going to end with him actually deciding to beat his dad's record, and it would have been symbolic of him finally getting past his dad's death or something.

The actual ending was good too.
