    I haven’t watched this yet, but one thing you need to look into if you haven’t is the use of these video games in developing battle field tactics and in designing weapons. These games can be used as virtual labratories where statistics can be generated on what tactics, weapons, personality types, motivations… on and on down the line, generate the “best” result. Want to test a theoretical weapon design? Just offer a new weapon as DLC and see how it does. The more detailed the mechanics and physics of the game, the more useful the results.
