Just cool....

Quote:
The guy in the article was 4 years old when his father bought one of the first Xbox consoles. The two played the game on it together up until his father's death two years later. The console was left to gather dust for a decade until one day he decided to turn it back on.

"...once i started meddling around... i found a GHOST," he wrote.

When a player is running a lap, a specter of the fastest timed car races as well to show players how close they are to beating the best score for the track. That fastest car belonged to 00WARTHERAPY00's dad. The gamer began playing the different tracks, re-experiencing the joy of racing against his dad, but he was careful not to get too good at the game.

"...and so i played and played, and played, until 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."
