According to a new study by an Arizona State University doctoral candidate published in the National Communication Association's Communication Currents journal, video games aren't accurate representations of combat or the wars they depict. "The way you play in these games is pride without problems - you don't feel remorse, there's no blood, nothing about how you should perform," said Aaron Hess, a communications doctoral candidate who authored the study. Hess claims that many games don't take into account the history of events because they play off a memory of the past. They do not provide information on how history came to that point. They don't show the events and decisions leading up to what happens in the game, he said.
