VideoGames Saved My Life!

Have videogames ever saved your life?

That's the question Games Radar answered recently with an inspiring article giving tons of real life examples of gaming having saved lives--A WOW player feigned death in front of a raving, real life moose, in game first-aid technique used on a real patient, etc.

Here's my own (admittedly not-too-dramatic) story:

On a camping trip, I was driving a car loaded with friends and family, and pulling out of a driveway onto a curve in the road. There was no way to see if anything was coming in either direction, and we were in the middle of nowhere, so I pulled out and immediately heard the blaaat of a truck horn. I slammed on the gas and we just missed being crunched by a logging truck. Literally, it was inches from us. I credit my heightened, videogame reflexes (and the V8 engine in the car I was driving.)

Add your story below if you wanna.
