Video Game Automation

The video game Gran Turismo 5 has two play modes. One allows you to drive the car and the other allows you to manage the drivers.

I have been advancing with both play modes and I've reached the point where I can now do the 24 hours of Le Mans race as a manager.

I'm using the same car that's shown in the following video. The car is so fast that I don't have to do anything. My car's been running for 13 hours so far unattended. The car has completed 250 laps and has a 68 lap lead, lol.

This is beyond surreal. I've been outsourced to my Playstation 3!

I will soon be doing this race as the driver and not the manager. I suspect that I'll wish I was outsourced while doing that one. What a bear! There is a way to pause thankfully, but there is no way to save progress until the race is over. That means I will be under pressure to wrap that race up ASAP lest my girlfriend summons the Gods of Netflix!
