Real and ersatz driving

(click for link)

I find this entirely unsurprising actually, because I  had to correct myself when I turned into a street yesterday where I  found myself wanting to drive on the wrong side of the road, something that I put down to only one factor and that is my recent playing of GTA IV. Now I don’t know if playing such games just makes you more aggressive on the road or if its just that the more you play  the harder it becomes  for you not to  blur the distinctions between reality and the game worlds but this is definitely a worry.
Cheers comrades

    Were you driving a car you had just acquired by pulling the previous driver out of their seat, punching them in the face and then getting in the seat yourself and driving off? If so, you may have been influenced by GTA.

  2. PKD says:

    And did you then use said car to mow down a suspected terrorist (to satisfy your lust for capital punishment), jump 10 red lights while being pursued by the police, car jack another 3 vehicles and fInally lose the cops by spray painting your car a different colour in a paint shop? That would confrm it!

    Yes, after years of playing Pacman I can’t walk past a golf course without chomping up all the little white balls then looking for some fruit.

    Well you must be on your dentist’s list of top customers then 😉

  5. Iain Hall says:

    It sounds like you have played the game PKD 😉
    but you should know that the trick is to pull out your phone and activate the “remove wanted level” cheat 🙂

  6. Iain Hall says:

    Well Leon
    I have been developing a strange accent…
