In a switch from the normally dark, cruel, hate-filled news in gaming culture lately, one video game directly attributed to saving the lives of three rather lucky people earlier this week.
Video games are evil i tell you /S.
God, what an awesome kid.
Wow!!! This is an awesome story! I love Mario Kart and videogames are absolutely not a waste of time. They help develop hand/eye coordination, they help develop the imagination, they help develop problem solving, and they are something the whole family can do together when you can't really go outside because of whatever reason.
This is single handidly going to save the Wii U.
not surprising considering video game can improve decision-making skills
absolutely baby yoshi
hand to eye coordination is greatly improved with video games!!!! "its a scientific fact!!!" ...my grammar on the other hand, "is not/no es"
politicians will still flip it around into bad news for gaming. smh.
Except they won't. Hell, I doubt any politicians will say anything negative or positive about this. Let's stop trying to make issues where none exist and focus on the topic at hand, shall we?
"Let's stop trying to make issues where none exist and focus on the topic at hand, shall we?" lol tell that to the politicians.
They will, "The Grandmother was up all night playing Minecraft which caused her to pass out"
Tonight on FOX... "A 10yr old boy recklessly takes over the wheel, drives at 60MPH, and saves 3 lives. How video games are to blame for this youth's terrifying actions" More info at 6... /s
"A 10yr old boy recklessly takes over the wheel, drives at 60MPH, and saves 3 lives. How video games are to blame for this youth's terrifying actions" How can you recklessly take something over, do something good (save 3 lives) and then then become a poster boy for terrifying actions? If anything they would say he endangered the 3 lives. =\
it wasa joke admiral, learn to relax
@ Wannabe Gamer Of course it is, but it's just stupid if the boy still SAVES the lives in the joke. You can't really spin it to be a negative when the boy still accomplishes something good.
You still don't quite get it yet....Try Again!
'Thank Christ his favourite game wasn't Burnout!' (stolen from Gaf. *hangs head in shame*) Mine was 'She must have hit a banana'

HOLY SHIT!! I have that exact car. I thought I had the only one in existence, seriously.

Good thing it wasn't Burnout. Edit: beaten
You need to play more Mario Kart. As do I. :)
loved his quote "My first thought was actually... 'is this a test, or what?'" he may need this quote again when he starts dating XD
Mario Kart FTW
and there goes some well needed free promotion for Nintendo
I see what they did there
And no one will ever talk about this the day after.
"if mario kart taught him to drive a car, what could happen if he got his hands on a violent game!"-inevitable worried mother's conclusion
Next article; Top ways Nintendo can save lives.
If it weren't for Winter and Icy roads in Gran Turismo back in the day, I probably would be in some accidents the winters we have here. My instincts already knew what to do when I would lose control, thanks to that game :). This kid is awesome BTW.
Someone threw a shell at the Grandma!
Barely has any relevance to video games, but I can see why people are jumping at the story
They save lives.
I wonder what the Media reaction would have been if he said he learned if from playing GTA4 when being chased by cops in the game. Good for this kid though, made a quick move and saved lives.
F*** all the videogame hater out there this kid is a hero because of games. Pick a new topic haters, have a seat.
Hate to be that guy but, mario cart has nothing to do with his reaction time. He got lucky and it reminded him of mario kart. Same goes for kids who steal cars and say they got it from gta. It works both ways. Glad he did what he did but lets get real here.
