So, the quick version for those who don't feel like watching the video below is as follows. A 74 year old woman was driving her 10 and 4 year old grandchildren somewhere when she passed out at the wheel while traveling at 60 mph. The 10 year old quickly grabbed the wheel and steered the car to safety. When asked how he pulled this off, he cites Mario Kart. Awesome! Check it out!
I DEFINITELY think that videogames help out with a lot of things, ESPECIALLY driving. I've talked to Heli before about "reflexes and driving," and I know that she has experienced this, too. Quick little swerves to avoid stuff seem almost involuntary, but with twitch gaming and all that..you know how it goes.
Pretty cool. I also think games help with reflexes and driving. After playing F-Zero GX, reacting to a minor hiccup in traffic is a cinch, and, as I've said multiple times, driving in heavy snow is EXACTLY LIKE SEGA RALLY.
Geez, I wonder what the grandma's health condition is? I mean, she just passed out at the wheel...that's not normal. Is she a narcoleptic, I wonder? Good work from the kid though - thankfully he was in the passenger seat, not in the back or something.
