Now, keep in mind the demographics of the military is largely male and largely under 30. The same people who would normally be playing video games even if they weren’t in the military. But when you concentrate young males in one place and remove women, beer, and pot from the equation…they really only have one thing left.
With the advancement of US military technology the real fighting and the video games are becoming more and more the same. In 2009, the military even came out with a shocking discovery! Kids who were good at video games were naturals flying Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, aka UAV’s or Drones. Personally, I don’t know where the surprise comes from…anyone who watched “The Last Starfighter” in 1984 already knew that.
