It can be any game actually, even GTA. It works because with the vast majority of the population can tell the difference between fiction and non-fiction. A guy I worked with back in 2000 was one of the truck drivers who was involved in that massive 90 car pileup on the 401 between London and Tilburry. His psychiatrist recommended games of any type, and specifically "comical" games of driving where the impossible was possible. He was back to driving trucks within a couple of years of that, before that he was terrified of hitting even small banks of fog. Because what initially happened was a complete whiteout from fog hit, and the pileup happened. Some people didn't get out, some burned alive in their cars. And not even EMS could find their way to the scene fast enough.
That area of the 401 is still really bad. It's basically a dead area, with no distractions, nothing to look at, it's just miles of flat road(uncommon in southern ontario), with either fields or trees on either sides of the highway. People falling asleep(highway hypnosis), or sudden banks of fog are still very common. The kicker was people, truck drivers, fire and police had been complaining since the 1960's(that area was built in 1956) that the highway section there was very dangerous. It took 30+ years, a 100 car pileup, 7 people dead, 45 injured before they put in improvements.
