Dashing down the asphalt like the drag from the wind was nothing, I took a sharp left turn that led me drifting into the lane in split seconds and straightened my vehicle back on the track again, this time going way faster than I ever was. I couldn not be stopped and I wasn't even gonna stop. The adrenaline rush was the cocaine.. I needed more and I was loving it.

Raging down the road like a mad bull from hell, my tires burning hut against the ground as I grinded past in maddening speed. I looked keenly at the road for obstacles and I could only see one - An old woman crossing the road.

  • If this scenario was in GTA Auto 5 ...would you??

  1. Send You car crashing to granny
  2. Hit the brakes
  3. Have been driving by the rules??

Answering my question, I would have picked sending the car crashing into granny... And yeah. I'd say "it's just a game"

But I'd like to think these little actions we do during these racing simulation games has a lot more physical and mental effect on our driving if we let it get into our heads.

First time I drove a car, I kept imagining different GTA scenarios or Asphalt 8 airborne scenarios and stunts I could do... You know, the likes of Near miss and all! Thank Goodness I usee my brain not to give in.

So.. Talk to me.. How has sports racing simulation helped or affected your actual driving?

It surely has not helped. But it hasn't made it worse neither. I would say, it opened some interesting aspects of driving which I (luckily) do not try on public roads :D
