Can you imagine losing a parent only at the age of six? While you may vaguely recall some of the happy memories from that short time spent together, surely the pain will never go away, ever.
You just cling to those wonderful memories dearly, and pray that over time you will not forget.
Apparently, this scenario is real for ?one teenage YouTube user (00WARTHERAPY00). And in a YouTube video about whether video games can be a spiritual experience, he shared his touching story in the comments section.
?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 couldn’t 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. Literally. 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, 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 ?wouldn’t delete it.
The boy?s story moved many YouTube commenters to tears, and there?s one saying: ?Dude I can’t handle this. This hits me so hard. I used to play video games with my dad too. We’d play Mario Kart 64 and Zelda. He died when I was 16. How I envy that Ghost racer.?
Sadly, the boy?s identity has not been confirmed up until now. Various publications in Asia picked up his comments and it?s gone viral. The teenager has been overwhelmed by the people?s response and said that he ?never expected any of this? and saying he ?just commented on a video, which happened to be about spirituality in video games.?
