3rd Person Driving in Real Life

(YouTube Link)

Whenever I play first-person shooters, I always drive in third-person because it's easier to see what's going on around me. But what's it like to drive a real car using the third-person perspective from a video game? The investigators at Rooster Teeth Labs hooked up a camera to a truck to find out. Mild language warning.

Is it sad that I recognized where the red truck was driving in Liberty City?

We LOVE Rooster Teeth. The kids and I want to descend on their offices and give them brownies.

We own SEVERAL of their tee shirts.

Jeff -- no, I'd probably still recognize some neighborhoods of Lost Heaven from Mafia.

Rev. Mommy -- I'd never heard of them before, but I'm going to check out their other vids.

We love the Red Vs. Blue series. We have actually named our Expedition "the Warthog," the white Saturn is the "Ghost" and the gold Saturn is the "Mongoose."

Fav Quote from like Episode One: I told you to stop making up Animals!

Do you have an Xbox gamer tag? Look for KillerLily18, JesusSprinkles, aa4lr.

John said...

No, I don't own an XBOX. I have an old PS2 somewhere, but I never hooked it up online.

Dearest, Dearest John,

You MUST get an Xbox ASAP. You owe it to your daughter. Gamers are not born, they must be carefully shaped.

You would LOVE Left 4 Dead. BioShock. Team Fortress 2!!
