>>will in many cases effectively instill a passion for the art of war and serving one's country.
I have read interviews with law enforcement / military trainers where they say there is a change due to video games in combatants behavior, especially younger ones. The usual behaviour of combatants was 'firing all the ammo in one burst and then getting to cover and _not_ reloading'. (To try and improve effectiveness in a fire fight soldiers were trained in knife fighting skills. Apparently a person is more likely to pull the knife and use it than reload the gun. Go figure!?)
Now they say that the combatants display calmer responses. Are more likely to reload and aim before firing.
I don't think that video games are 100% responsible, the mass media shows a lot of violence as well.
