I’ve read stories of people who get so good at racing simulations they’re actually able to race real cars. I’ve never really seen one of them in action before, but this is a redditor’s girlfriend’s brother who is simply a god of Initial D at the arcade.
I recently tried to play one of these games at a Dave and Busters, and spent the vast majority of my time slamming into walls and being lapped by AI. This guy is Mario Andretti by comparison, and somehow I got an adrenaline rush just by watching this video…of a simulated car race. That’s how intense it is. Check it out for yourself above.
