I haven’t played as many video games as some of you out there. But I have played SOME video games MORE than some of you out there. Which is to say that my catalog may not be as varied, but there are some titles I have played to death.
One of those is Gran Turismo. In one of the old versions of the game, when a certain song kicked in, I was in a zone and my score increased. The song is “Heaven Is Wide,” by Garbage. Whenever I hear that song, I imagine a controller in my hands as I lean to one side Englishing my car through a sweeping turn.
They say that fragrances are the strongest memory triggers, but I think music is way up there as well. Any of the rest of you have music-related video-game hallucinations?
