Forget Call of Duty and Battlefield. Real Military Training Needs a Different Kind of Game

Kotaku - You're playing a game like Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty, shooting and grenading left and right. And you're thinking, "Wow, what an awesomely realistic game. The Navy Seals should be playing this."

Well, they probably are. The U.S. military has embraced video games. In fact, the Pentagon can't even fight a war without games, because it's too expensive to train soldiers the old-fashioned, face-in-the-mud way. (Culture, Virtual Battlespace 2)
