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.)
