A YouTube commenter's story of racing the ghost car of his deceased father has been making laps around game and car blogs. Yahoo! Autos has the full tale, in which a boy's father dies when he's six and ten years later the boy boots up his dad's Xbox to find his father's ghost car to race against in RalliSport Challenge.

"And so i played and played, and played, until i was almost able to beat the ghost," he wrote. "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. Bliss."

The comment was in response to a video by PBS's Game/Show asking: Can video games be a spiritual experience? We've placed the video after the break.
