Marr 3attentiveness and quick reaction time. Making tight turns on roads that are slippery ismuch like guiding a combat plane onto a runway in a video game. Both requireexperience, concentration, and practice for one to master the maneuver. The onlydifference is that, while video game competitions don’t put anyone in harm’s way,navigating a road in inclement weather does. The same precision used by video gamersto win competitions can easily be compared to controlling a car during all the worstweather conditions.Multitasking while driving a car is a risk and should be avoided, but on the other hand, sometimes it is necessary to maintain control and safety. Just as baseball playersmust learn to get ready to sprint to first base and prepare to hit the ball at the same time,car drivers must learn to adjust windshield wipers and other vital gadgets while driving.It is also the same in high intensity video games such as “first person shooters.” Playersmust master actions such as crouching, strafing, and running all at the same time. Theseare vital winning techniques in video games, and equally important multitasking skills touse in a car. While using a cell phone while driving is not vital for control, knowing howto operate windshield wipers, turn signals, and climate controls while driving is veryimportant. Next time you drive, notice how many times you use these strategies. You mayhave already learned all the techniques and mastered all the tricks that make driving a car safer. The same way you apply these rules of the road are very similar in the way anathlete or video gamer applies what he or she has learned in the game. Both drivers andgamers must be aware, predict outcomes, and use caution when making their move. It isthe common link between skilled sportsmen and professional drivers.
