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.   


Sad and heart warming at the same time.

So simple but yet so moving 

Moving story played out with modern (ish) technology.


Also just remembered that I too had that game. 

Would make a good Twilight Zone episode
