Have You Seen This? Gamer plays Xbox with father who passed away

Posted April 19

THE MATRIX — I’m not much for gaming. There was a time in my life where I became obsessed with Sims on my home PC, enjoyed playing Pokemon on my pocket GameBoy, and even dabbled in a little original Spyro on Playstation, mostly because I liked collecting jewels and being followed by a small pixie.

For some people, though, gaming can be a transcendent experience and lifelong passion. It can create a sense of self, a skillset and arguably, a unique community to belong to. That is certainly true for one man, who responded to a question about having a spiritual gaming experience in a very honest and moving way.

YouTube user and gamer 00WARTHERAPY00 responded on a video about a unique experience he had playing Xbox after his father died, and the post gained traction. Since then, John Wikstrom made a video copying the text word for word, titling the post “Gamer Two.”

The video has gone viral since posting on April 12.
