Click above to watch the video after the jump

We never cease to be amazed at just how good some folks are at video games. While we're as good at the button-mashing shuffle as the next guy, sometimes our brains and hands just won't cooperate. Drifting is a prime example. We know we need to rev the engine to get the tires to spin, but our finger sometimes run us into brick walls when our mind has us running the line. We know we're not alone here, but the post-jump Forza 3 drifting video is proof positive that some guys are just spiritually in tune with their XBOX 360 controller.

The proud owner of this virtual drift video chose a Datsun 510 as the super drifting car extraordinaire, and it's obvious that this guy or girl plays entirely too much Forza 3. Solid drifts quickly turn to masterful pirouetting and backwards drifts, sliding to within inches of virtual guard rails. Pretty amazing stuff. Hit the jump to watch for yourself.

      So Forza is where those guys in the Middle East learn to drift & spin their cars so well on public roads

      Yeah so?????? What was his score???

      While I am impressed at peoples' skills at certain video games, when they get THIS good, I can't help but think of the Guitar Hero episode of South Park.

      Those who have seen it know what I mean.

      Looks cool, whoever did the video did a bad job capturing it. I been playing Forza 2 thru HDMI and it looks great.

        I don't have my XBOX online, so I never played with that stuff. I thought they were running the video thru a video capture card or something. I just didn't want people to think that video quality was that bad.

        i stand to be corrected but the video quality degrades considerably when it's uploaded thru the FM3 servers. at least that was my experience after i saved, uploaded and then downloaded video i had made thru the game.

      I can't wait to do this in GT5...when it comes out in 2013

      Once you figure out how to set up a car in Forza 3, it's pretty easy to do something like this (my favorite drift car is the E36 M3).

      That 360 drift was pretty cool. I'd like to see someone do that in real life. I might even be inclined to buy shoes from a guy who could do that. Hint, hint.
