My Fantasy Video Game
I was in Williamsburg, VA the other night enjoying a curried chicken salad when I noticed a racing event being shown on the bar’s televisions. Like most people I know, I do not pay any attention to auto racing because it’s really boring to watch. And because, let’s be honest, not enough people die. But it occurred to me while watching this particular race that I bet participating in NASCAR is really fun. Like, super fun. Which made me think that there should be a video game out there where you build yourself a NASCAR career, starting at the bottom wherever those people start doing what they do – racing go-carts or something? Racing wheelchairs at old age homes? I don’t know how they start, but in my game you have to start there. At the bottom. You have to win at every level, gradually working your way up until, eventually, you ride with the best. And then you’ve got all the other stuff that goes along with it – getting sponsorship, getting a car, yelling at people, doing stuff. (I obviously have no idea what they do because my examples are “yelling at people” and “doing stuff.”.) But that’s the kind of game I would enjoy. Full immersion in the NASCAR lifestyle including having sex with bleach blonde NASCAR groupies. Does that game already exist? And if it does, please don’t send it to me because I have enough addictions already in my life. By the way, the curried chicken salad was very good.
