 Playing Fuel on the PS3 on a huge screen that makes it much closer to live size is fun. Doing so for about 90 minutes is real fun. Driving a real car to the grocery store at midnight to make sure the kids have lunch tomorrow after playing Fuel for 90 minutes is disorienting. Somewhere in the back of my brain, I was reminding myself, "This is the real world. The Passat cannot offroad, the car doesn't reset after massive damage, and running over stuff for the hell of it causes all sorts of trouble."

I used to have a similar reaction when I played a lot of Burnout. Part of me was looking for the boost button on the steering wheel so my car would go faster. And after playing Lego Star Wars, fencing class was interesting. I wanted to spin the foil around and jab it into the ground so I could Force Zap everyone within a 10 foot radius. Doesn't work that way.
