A 16-year-old boy who lost his dad ten years ago said he recently found his father’s “ghost” in one of their favorite video games.

The gamer said  he was playing an Xbox game that he used to play with his dad.

User 00WARTHERAPY00 shared his story in the comments section of a YouTube video on a PBS investigation of spirituality and religion.

The gamer said he and his dad would often race each other in a game called RalliSport Challenge.

When his father died, he lost interest in playing the game.

A decade later, he dusted off the old console and finally played the game.

“And once I started meddling around… I found a ghost,” he said.

That “ghost” was his father, whose character he could still race against as long as he didn’t beat his dad’s high score.

“And so I played and played, and played, until I was almost able to beat the ghost. Until one day I got ahead of it, I surpassed it, and… I stopped right in front of the finish line, just to ensure I wouldn’t delete it.”
