It's difficult to believe the Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" has been on for 20 years. It's even more unbelievable that we've been utterly blown away by a video game that doesn't involve the killing or general maiming of alien life forms. But both, shockingly, are true. Witness "Sharkrunners," an online game created by area/code that allows you to captain a marine research boat and track down real live sharks that have been tagged with GPS units. It's the next best thing to being there, without the putrid stench of the dreaded chum bucket.
